Congratulations to Mary Garcia Tejeda for graduating Summa Cum Laude from the Nutrition Consultant certificate program. Mary’s passion for holistic health, and fitness, creating delicious food, and sharing her knowledge has led her to Hawthorn University’s Nutrition program where she embarked on a nutrition education to learn how food and lifestyle can impact health. After many personal losses of some of the closest people in her life, she was determined to learn more about health and preventing disease. Now after completing the Nutrition Consultant program, she wants to add this knowledge to her cooking and meal planning skills to help others. Women are known for being nurtures and leaving their own needs for last, if there is time. Mary truly wants to inspire women to take the time for their health, and help them find simple ways to incorporate healthy habits into their lives, so they can care for others as well as themselves.
