Hey there! I'm Raina Dawn. Holistic Nutritionist + Coach to AMAZING women who are ready to step up + start eating (and feeling) better!
How it all Began//Led to a love of the art & science of fermented foods while living in Kitsilano studying Holistic Nutrition; Raina also dabbled in yoga, painting guitars, The Beatles, cooking, wine at the beach, tea drinking and Jimi Hendrix & Janis - all things 1960's.
Experience//Raina relocated back to the Okanagan in 2011 with a diploma in Holistic Nutrition, happily settling into the cozy Valley: teaching, consulting, and creating the Okanagan's very first line of locally brewed organic kombucha. Raina spent two years on the faculty at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. Now focused on her incredibly inspiring clientele she is dedicated to her craft which shows in the long line of client success in the last 7 years. Raina was a Top 40 Under 40 in Penticton in 2014 and nominated for the Julie Daniluk award in 2016 for outstanding presence within the Holistic Nutrition Industry. In 2018 she was nominated in Pentictons' Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards for "Young Business Leader of the Year." Raina is a current member of the CSNN’s Alumni Association as well as the Canadian Association of Holistic Nutrition Professionals (CAHN-Pro.)
Food Revolution//Raina felt strongly during her studies of Nutrition that there was an exciting movement growing. Teaching and living the practice of eating clean, organic foods and supporting local farmers' is a key factor.
Volunteering//When not helping clients or brewing the Okanagan's kombucha, Raina aids new Holistic Nutritionists' into the industry with mentorship and has created a web of RHN community in the Okanagan. She also volunteers with Slow Food Thompson Okanagan, sits on the board as the BC Regional Mentor for Slow Food Canada, supports the Get Bent Active Arts Society and helps facilitate support circles for those with disordered eating.

Are you ready for change?
I work with clients who are:
tired of food causing them stress (When women know how to read their own body signals and stop trusting magazines / diets, they'll digest better, lose weight and have 100% confidence in their nutrition. No more searching for the next quick fix. We all know it doesn't work.)
tired of feeling like they do not have the time or energy for eating well (I learned a lot of important lessons while transitioning my diet in 2010 from standard fare to beautiful, clean food. The skills required for the mindset/mental transformation became a game changer: changing your diet is more about your mindset than it is about gathering a bigger salad recipe collection. (I craft my incredible clientele nutrition plans that give them the tools + 100% confidence to eat well, easily and repeatedly.)
Those "tired of feeling this way" women I mentioned above? If that’s you it’s my mission to show you that eating well doesn’t have to be hard. (And, that it feels really, really good.... when you do it my way.)
