FOUNDER & OWNER
Renée, our founder, is a Registered Dietitian certified both in Canada and the United States. She comes from a family with issues of diabetes, heart disease, thyroid issues and Alzheimer’s Disease and is driven to help others with similar concerns. After receiving a Bachelor’s of Science from The University of California, San Diego she went on to New York University to pursue a Master’s of Science in Clinical Nutrition. It was while studying at NYU that she first immersed herself in the restaurant industry as a waitress. After working as a Registered Dietitian in New York, she went abroad to France to work in organic farms in transition to a residency in Hong Kong. After receiving an MBA from Camden University, she now has rooted herself in Vancouver with The True Nosh Co. with hopes to stay for good.
Renée focuses on the prevention of diseases as well as the reversal of illnesses especially with diabetes. Renée brings knowledge and experiences from Southeast Asia, France, Italy, New Zealand, New York and California. Renée quit her job as a Clinical Dietitian in the concrete jungle and was engulfed in working with food. She became a line cook in the vast restaurants of New York City and continued to work in restaurants when she decided to spend a few months WWOOF-ing in the South of France. Eventually she moved to Hong Kong to find her roots in Chinese Cooking. She considers herself a Culinary Dietitian. With the hunger for knowledge and the vision of a better and healthier world, Renée hopes to fill the homes of like minded people with her food and beverage products so that diabetes and heart disease will no longer be the threat to us or to our loved ones!
