Jess Sherman is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist™ and Family Health Expert, specializing in brain health & resilience for kids.
Her path shifted when she took a sabbatical from her high school teaching career to study nutrition. In 2007 she graduated top of her class as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist™ from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and since then has worked alongside Naturopathic, Chiropractic and Medical Doctors, Family Counsellors, Occupational Therapists, teachers and parents to help kids calm down, learn better, have better sleep, have better poops, enjoy more stable moods and get over their picky eating.

As a parent and advocate for children’s health, Jess is working to bring an understanding of the power of good nutrition into the mainstream conversation about children’s mental health and learning. Her book, Raising Resilience: Take the stress out of feeding your family and love your life, her virtual community The Raising Resilience Community, and her online resources have helped families all over the world fit the food and feeding piece into their health puzzles and guide them towards safe, natural and effective tools to improve the lives of their children with learning differences, anxiety, ADHD, autism and mood disorders.
