“Cordelia is an excellent speaker and made online learning fun.”


“I wasn’t sure what to expect going into the course. Having taken nutrition courses before that aspect wasn’t new to me but Cordelia covered other topics I hadn’t considered to be important when looking at nutrition, and that is the holistic aspect coming into play. Cordelia was approachable and energetic. Her passion for holistic nutrition is obvious and her content was informative and easy to understand.”
