After working for a major corporation for over 30 years, Gail Kincaid (Hawthorn NC program graduate 2017) decided to pursue her passion and return to school to study nutrition. Inspired by family members who suffer from chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, kidney failure, kidney disease, hypertension and heart disease, Gail started creating a cookbook, transforming traditional recipes to healthier ones.
However, Gail realized there was a major component missing in her knowledge. She did not have a clear understanding of what nutrition was. Putting the cookbook on hold, she enrolled in the Nutrition Consultant certificate program at Hawthorn University in 2014. What started out as wanting to gain the knowledge to understand the nutrition behind creating healthier dishes, evolved into Gail’s desire to change lives through healthy eating.
Hawthorn All About Alumni Webinar Series presents In Search of the Right Ingredients for Nutritional Balance with Gail Kincaid.
Gail will show us how a thirst for the fundamental knowledge of holistic nutrition lead to a life of educating others on the many benefits of eating nutritiously! Gail will tell us all about her life changing decision and how it has assisted in the search for nutritional balance.
Gail Renee Kincaid is the founder of Nutritional Balance and a Certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant. Completing her studies and graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2017, Gail launched her practice, Nutritional Balance. The goal of Gail’s practice is to educate her clients on how to make informed decisions about managing their health and partnering with them to build a plan to do so. Nutritional Balance provides a number of services to fit everyone’s needs such as diet evaluations, goal setting, meal planning, meal prep and pantry clean up.
Gail has chosen to focus on educating the aging community; specifically the Baby Boomer generation. Research shows Boomers are living longer, however suffer from more chronic illnesses than other generations. She volunteers her services speaking at wellness seminars within the Indianapolis area, which include Alzheimer Awareness, Family Enrichment Conferences and Healthy Eating for the Aging Adult.
