I am a freelance writer and editor, as well as a Certified Holistic Nutritionist. Living Healthy in the Real World is a blog which covers topics of general health and wellness, nutrition and food, fitness, emotional health and wellbeing, mental health, natural and holistic remedies, and lifestyle issues.
As a health writer, I focus mostly on nutrition, fitness, body image, and emotional and mental health. I love to experiment with recipes and try out new fitness programs, and I like to share my experiences with you on my blog. I also do many book and product reviews, and anything reviewed on my site is done objectively regardless of whether or not I have received the product for free directly from the company (in which case I will always make a note of). For any companies wishing to send me products or books to review, send me an e-mail and I would be more than happy to take your idea into consideration.
I have a B.A. in Rhetoric, Writing, and Communications. To celebrate my passion for my studies, I have a rhetoric blog, which you can check out at Living Rhetorically in the Real World. I write a food diary blog in which I document my daily food intake and the exercise that I do each day over at Health Writer Eats; you can also find recipes on that site. I wrote the Living Well column for the University of Winnipeg’s The Uniter for two years and am a Top Health Blogger at Wellsphere. I am the Executive Director for and represent one-quarter of an organization called The Food Label Movement.
You can also follow me on Twitter, find me on LinkedIn, and become a fan of my Facebook Page. You can access Living Healthy, Living Rhetorically, Living Well, Health Writer Eats, my Facebook Fan Page, and my Twitter profile at my Living in the Real World main page.
Learning about health and gathering information is a top priority for me and you’ll find lots of book reviews and recommendations around here. One of the best ways to spread knowledge and awareness is to share what we know, so don’t hesitate to e-mail me or leave a comment! I’m open to discussion and am very interested in hearing your opinions, thoughts, and ideas. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org – I’d love to chat!
