Lisa Anderson is a holistic nutritionist with Koru Nutrition. Lisa’s passion for nutrition arose when her first daughter was born unresponsive and with severe health issues. The doctors told her there was no hope for her daughter, but Lisa refused to believe this. Instead, with compassion and tonnes of love, good nutrition, supplements, and various therapies, Lisa helped her daughter gain her health and thrive.
Through her journey to help her daughter deal with the complexities of a genetic diagnosis, a congenital heart defect, many surgeries, and then Autism, Lisa recognized the paramount roles both nutrition and mindset play in nurturing her daughters, herself. Lisa now directs her knowledge, experience, passion, energy, and fortitude to all her clients.

She graduated with a degree in psychology in 1988 and participated in a Masters of Arts in Special Education from the University of Toronto (degree not conferred).
