/ MEET SHAWNA
Evidence-Based Nutritionist and Vegan Health Expert
Shawna Barker BSc., RHN is a nutritionist, college instructor, and an expert in plant-based nutrition. She is passionate about natural health and sustainable living. This interest led her to graduate with honours from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelors of Science degree in Food, Nutrition, and Health, as well as the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition with a Diploma in Holistic Nutrition.
Shawna began her journey towards health and nutrition over 26 years ago when she decided to change her diet at a very young age and was determined to learn everything she could about nutrition, food science, natural health, and how to thrive on a plant-based diet.
As the founder of Synergy Nutrition, she is able to teach, inspire, and motivate her clients and students about the benefits of nutrition and natural health. Drawing from her background in both science and holistic health she is able to supply the inspiration and knowledge to support her clients' health with a comprehensive program including individualized diet, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations.
"Through my own personal experience seeking out nutritious and delicious foods that give me energy, clarity, and balance I felt passionate to start sharing what I have learned over the past 15 years so I can help create individual dietary, supplement/herb, and lifestyle changes that put you on the path to optimal health."
Although she practices and specializes in plant-based nutrition, she is not limited to dealing only with plant-based diets, she works with many clients with a variety of diets to improve their nutrition.
