Linzy's Story

What Inspired Linzy to Become a Dietitian and Plant Based

Motivation to Become a Dietitian:

My interest in pursuing a career in nutrition arose when I was young. When I was a little girl, my grandmother was diagnosed with diabetes. I observed her dramatic lifestyle changes, mainly with a change in what she was eating. I was fascinated as I saw firsthand that what we eat can impact our overall health. My grandmother is still thriving today at 85 years old.

My motivation for being a dietitian is reinforced every day as I help others achieve their own goals. I love connecting with people, working as a team to find their own motivation, and then witnessing their success. 

Motivation to Become Plant Based:

When I was young, we did not eat a lot of meat in our household. I became vegetarian out of curiosity during my last year of high school. As I became educated on sustainability, as well as because of an endless love for all creatures, I decided to transition to veganism less than two years later. 

I have been vegan for almost 16 years because I experienced the physical, emotional, and social benefits. I never force dietary changes on anyone, but, when a person is ready to become vegan, vegetarian, or just include more plants in their diet, I am always willing to be a guide
