Congratulations to Alison Riddiford for graduating Summa Cum Laude from the Nutrition Consultant certificate program. Alison holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She is a CPA with a background in public and private accounting but her true passion is holistic-based health and wellness with a focus on nutrition. After struggling for years with intestinal disorders and inflammation, Alison reached out to the medical community for help but was only offered symptom management through medication. At that point, she sought to find the “why” behind her symptoms and discovered holistic medicine. This experience motivated her to enter Hawthorn to learn more. Alison is well versed in all areas of holistic nutrition, and holds a special interest in both prediabetes and food sensitivities. Her focus is on helping her clients find the balance of diet and lifestyle which best supports their individual needs. She is currently busy launching Serenity Nutrition & Wellness based in Scottsdale, AZ. Visit Alison’s website (coming soon!) for more information: http://www.SerenityNutritionAndWellness.com. Best of luck, Alison!
