Events and Classes

Chris provides expert presentations on numerous topics of interest. She offers meaningful content that is grounded by evidence-based practices and focuses on the challenges of day-to-day living in a demanding world.

Chris is passionately engaged in helping people understand what drives food choices. Most people recognize convenience, value and pleasure as the primary factors. However, Chris also recognizes we are influenced by deeply seeded factors outside of our understanding such as food culture, our biology, farm policy, industrial agriculture and marketing. Chris’s presentations are thought provoking and promote the awakening that is necessary to disrupt food patterns and behaviors, which in turn promote change.

Chris is also passionate about a holistic approach to health and wellness, which emphasizes the interconnectedness of the body, mind, emotion, spirit, social/cultural, relationship, context, and environment. Presentations are centered on this philosophy of care. Here are just a few of the ranges of presentations available or Chris will create presentations targeted to the needs of your audience.
