Shannon began her journey to becoming an Advance Raw Food Chef with Pachavega Living Foods Education through her passion for food and interest in nutrition and aging. An advocate of 'you are what you eat’, with an educational background in greenhouse crop production horticulture, Shannon’s interest in how and where food is grown, leads her to seek out sustainable and organic food. Becoming a Raw Food Chef has provided an avenue for Shannon to share her passion for healthy aging, and longevity. She has completed a Natural Health Fundamentals Certificate, is a wife, mother and grandmother, in addition to being a beekeeper and beekeeping consultant. It is possible to be healthy and vibrant at any age, because aging is not a choice, but how we age is.
