Congratulations to Barbara Heiz for attaining the Summa Cum Laude designation upon her graduation from the Master of Science in Holistic Nutrition program. Barbara also holds a bachelor’s degree in International Management. Her early experiences led her to the understanding that although doctors are important to assist people to heal, a clean diet can help fight cancer and other diseases. She applied to Hawthorn to be one step closer to leading others to wellness. Barbara believes that what we put in the body is essential to well-being and that food can heal and fuel body and mind. Barbara intends to work in a private practice as a consultant promoting good, healthy food. She also plans to speak at schools engaging teenagers who are struggling with weight issues and eating disorders. Her thesis is entitled A Guide to Preventing and Supporting Anorexia Nervosa Holistically by Optimizing the Gut-Brain-Axis. Good luck, Barbara!
