Lectures and Speaking Engagements
I love to speak to crowds! I have experience that ranges from DIY festivals to scientific conferences and groups of 20 to over 200. I’ve spoken to student organizations and done guest lectures at universities, presented to vegetarian and environmental groups and spoken on a variety of panels.  I have a sliding scale of fees and do whatever I can to be available- please get in touch if you’d like me to speak at your event.

Cooking and Restaurant Consultation
My professional training and personal experience goes beyond the nutrition of food and into the kitchen! I love to cook and create recipes and am available to consult with restaurants, chefs and individuals who want to incorporate more vegan and vegetarian meals. Please contact me for details.

Media Spokesperson
As a Registered Dietitian and expert on nutrition, I’m qualified to speak with the media about the science of veganism. If you work in media or are approached for a piece, don’t hesitate to contact me for a quote.

I’m available for writing columns in print or online on a variety of subjects pertaining to diet, exercise and lifestyle. I have unique experience as a nutrition professional ranging from bike touring through Central America, doing the world’s hardest triathlon in Eidfjord, Norway and teaching college in south central Los Angeles. I think good health, fun, adventure, ethics and radical politics go hand-in-hand.
