Serena received her certification as a Holistic Nutrition Consultant from Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition in 2021. She began working for Natural Grocers during college, where her love for learning about nutrition thrived. She studied Journalism and Foreign Languages at the University of Udine, Italy, before she realized nutrition was her passion. Growing up, she spent summers in Puglia, Italy, where her family has olive orchards and vineyards and still grows a lot of their local food. If you can't find Serena in a health food store, you will find her trail running with her dog, throwing ceramics, gardening, practicing yoga, or cooking Mediterranean-inspired meals with her family and friends.
