I grew up in a Greek-American household and spent every summer in the Mediterranean. From a young age, I learned that food is not just fuel but a huge part of culture, tradition, and nourishment. Yet when I’d return to the U.S. after summer vacations, I’d feel confused by the contradictory nutrition information in the media. Healthy eating seemed so natural in Greece, but so complicated back at home. It was this disparity — along with my own personal struggles with weight, acne, GERD, and IBS — that drew me to pursue nutrition as a career.
