Hi! My name is Jennifer White. I am a Certified Health Coach and Natural Foods Chef living and working in Portland, Maine. I am a practitioner at the Integrative Health Center of Maine, a diverse collection of practitioners who share a common vision: To help our patients achieve a state of true wellness and health using conventional and natural treatments. We practice true Integrative Medicine, combining our various healing modalities to help our patients find their path to wellness.
I’ve been passionate about food since I was a little girl -think tabbing every page in a newly acquired cookbook while my friends were reading Roald Dahl. But, as I continued to educate myself about the culinary arts, I became exposed to the health epidemic that our country, and our world, faces today. As my concerns grew, I branched out to learn more about how I could help foster a healthier nation. I stumbled upon the natural foods world, and with that serendipitous moment, my passion to eradicate our crisis through natural, healthy foods grew too!
A little bit about my credentials:
- I received my B.B.A. in Marketing from Loyola University Chicago, where I studied marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, accounting, and operations.
- Am a Natural Foods Chef from The Natural Gourmet Institute for health and the culinary arts- the nation’s premier health foods culinary school.
- Am a Certified Holistic Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition- the world’s largest nutrition school- and a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
