Theresa Wajnert, MSHN Graduate

Congratulations to Theresa Altmix Wajnert for attaining Summa Cum Laude upon graduating from the Master of Science in Holistic Nutrition degree program. Theresa received her undergraduate degree in psychology from Albertus Magnus College and a Master of Divinity from Yale University. She was ordained as one of the first class of women permitted into the Episcopal priesthood and continued her studies at UC Berkeley and at Drew University in the fields of theology and psychology. Theresa has always loved food and the culture around it. Growing up in a medical family, health was always at the forefront of the family’s minds. Thus, for her, food has always been more than just fuel for the body; it has been sustenance in the true sense of the word. Theresa lives in the Napa Valley with her husband, Tom, where they grow grapes for winemaking and on the northern California coast where they luxuriate in the peace of the sea. Her thesis is entitled Nutrition, Homocysteine and Mitigation of Late-Life Depression. Keep up the good work, Theresa!​
