Reya Steele Andrews: Holistic Health & Nutrition Educator

I am passionate about sharing knowledge and inspiration that empowers people to heal themselves and thrive. I am a holistic health writer and nutrition educator specializing in the medicinal power of plants and a whole food plant-based diet. I have been studying the food system, nutrition, and holistic health for 24 years and have worked professionally as a health researcher, writer, and educator for 14 years. A few of my significant experiences include starting a nonprofit to advocate for biking and walking at age 21, completing a 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2006, working for 6 years (2007-2012) on a CDC-funded public health research project which I authored, starting a business (2012) to sell two health education activity books for kids that I created, and selling this business and rights to the book (2015).
Since selling my previous business in 2015, my research and content development has focused on nutrition science, nutritional healing, whole food plant-based/vegan recipe development, and plant-based medicine. I earned a Masters of Science (MS) in Nutrition Science from Texas Women’s University in 2023 and a Bacherlors of Art (BA) in Philosophy from College of Charleston in 2005. In 2018 was awarded a scholarship to and have completed the Center for Nutrition Studies/Cornell Plant Based Nutrition Certificate program, I am a Certified Holistic Nutritionist (2020) and Certified Health and Wellness Coach (2021) with the America Fitness Professionals & Associates (AFPA), and I am a proud member of the American Society of Nutrition, American College of Lifestyle Medicine, Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the International Society for Evolution in Medicine and Public Health, and the American Herbalists Guild. I currently divide my time between pursuing a doctoral degree in Nutrition Science, working as part of the clinical nutrition department in a large hospital, and counseling pregnant and breastfeeding moms on feeding their babies. I am passionate about holistic wellness, evolutionary nutrition, plant-based diets, and sharing the science of nutrition and health. I am currently open to new teaching and writing opportunities.
