Abigail Watson, Programme Facilitator
Over many years, Abigail has developed her passion for all things related to health and fitness through facing her own struggles with weight and food. This led her to complete degrees in Human Nutrition, Food Science and Public Health. Always considering herself to be a “foodie” with an interest in cooking, Abigail loves that Taste Success is a holistic approach to health and wellbeing focused on whole foods to fuel and sustain the body. Abigail has a strong interest on developing nutrition awareness and educating people on how to cook and use food to power their body and feel amazing. Abigail seeks to help and support others within their health journeys. With her personal experience in unveiling a happier and healthier self, Abigail would love to share her knowledge and passion with clients to help others do the same.
Kris Jarvis, Programme Facilitator
Kris has a degree in Physical Education from Otago University and a strong passion for health, fitness and wellness. This year, she will be studying Nutritional Sciences at the Naturopathic College of NZ to grow her passion and knowledge in natural health and naturopathy. Kris has a firm belief that what we nourish and fuel our bodies with has a huge impact on overall wellbeing and once we get this right, the benefits flow through into all aspects of our life. Kris loves the fact that the Taste Success programme is based on delicious, natural, whole foods and the recipe book, daily plan and shopping lists make it easy and simple to follow and perfect for families and busy people on the go. Outside of work, you’ll find Kris outdoors connecting with nature – in her garden, walking running or biking in hills around Wellington or kayaking in the harbour.
Jennifer Gini, Programme Facilitator
Jen is based in the northern suburbs in Wellington. With a post graduate science and psychology background she has long been interested in "what the real science says". Studying a Naturopathic Diploma in Nutrition was an eye opener, and awakened a passion for healthy living and eating and helping others to do so. With a background in adult education she looks forward to assisting clients achieve their health and wellness goals through this very well put together programme that guides you and supports you all the way.
Tayne Thomson, Programme Facilitator
Tayne is based in Mana, Wellington, and is passionate about working with her clients to live a happy and healthy life. Having lost her father to cancer 25 years ago she realised how our lifestyle choices can either harm or heal us.
Through courses in Nutrition, Coaching and Spiritual Wellbeing Tayne has educated herself in the benefits of eating nourishing food, reducing stress and unhealthy lifestyle habits. She has adopted a philosophy, “It’s not just what we eat but how we think and behave that influences our overall wellbeing”, and in this fast-paced world we live in today, these key areas are being pushed aside, until our health is in danger and we are forced to address them. Tayne would like to empower you with your health to prevent reaching this point.
Discovering Taste Success programmes Tayne has found a path we can all follow, no matter where we are on our health journey. Simple and easy to follow recipes based on nourishing and real food, menu plans and support from her, Tayne looks forward to working with you to achieve your wellness goals.
