Why are you interested in SVS?

To meet others who love being healthy and help the environment.

What can SVS do for you?

Educate me even more. I know a lot but I am always looking to learn more!

Tell us about yourself.

At age 13 I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. Placed on steroids for 5 year i had to learn how better my health to live a fulfilling life. I found nutrition and researched as much as I could so I could continue to be active in dance, theater and sports. I have been in remission since my first diagnosis and continued my love of nutrition and food receiving a degree in Dietetics further becoming a Dietetics Professional and Certified Fitness Professional. I have been semi-vegetarian for 5 year and Vegan for 1.5 years. I love food and how it can help our bodies live to the fullest!

Are you vegan, vegetarian, omnivore, or transitioning?

VEGAN all the way ;)


My name is Melissa and I love being healthy and learning how to improve my diet so I can help animals, the environment and fight disease!
