Lauren Lehmkuhl has a BS in Foods and Nutrition, Dietetics and is actively completing a MS in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine. She became frustrated with nutrition education when information she was studying was outdated, and the focus of the course was on treating sick people instead of preventing chronic illness.
After a year and a half break from the nutrition world where she taught in Thailand, she returned to the San Diego area and revived her interest in nutrition. She has since enrolled in an online masters in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine, which focuses strongly on individualized, evidence-based nutrition for preventing disease and promoting healthy living.
Lauren loves doing outdoors activities like camping, hiking, yoga, rollerblading, or picnicking. She is always listening to new music and loves going to shows. She also really enjoys eating, kitty cuddles, reading, playing piano, and gardening.
