Jeanine Sadd, Programme Facilitator

Based in the beautiful Marlborough/Wairau region, Jeanine's journey in Health has been almost a life's work. As a teenager, Jeanine saw family and whanau deal with several life-changing health issues which motivated her to research nutrition and dietary theories. It was when Jeanine and her daughter also experienced health issues stemming from allergies that she saw it was no longer a unique situation. Through her work at a local health food store, Jeanine saw many dealing with nutrition and lifestyle challenges and realised she was able to motivate and empower people through education, support and a listening ear. Her natural ability to advocate for others began at this time also. In 2015, Jeanine graduated as an Integrative Health Coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and is also a Board member for Supporting Families Marlborough, a member of the Hauora/Health portfolio for Rangitane O Wairau and is a Support Worker in the Health and Disability sector. When Jeanine saw the Taste Success Programme advertised, she knew intuitively this would be of huge benefit to many as a way to support clients through their own health journey.
