Claire Knight (Warren-Welsh) H.Bsc (Kin), RHN
My journey into Health & Wellness started at a young age, as an athlete. My passion for Gymnastics and Snowboarding lead me to pursuing a degree at U of Windsor and U Waterloo in Kinesiology / Human Kinetics with a minor in Psychology. That passion diverted to Natural Health and Healing. As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist & Kinesiologist, I started working in a health food store, at a holistic health clinic in Fergus, and have worked as a Sales Rep for a number of Nutraceutical Companies such as Genuine Health, Prairie Naturals and Enerex Botanicals, where I am currently the National Sales Manager and Product Educator. I recognize the connection of a Healthy Body & Healthy Mind. Our Physical Health is very much connected to our Mental Health. I strive to educate individuals and corporations on the importance of Nutrition, Exercise and Sleep as part of being a productive parent, worker, partner and member of the community we live in.
My Family & Community
I am a single mom with 4 amazing teenagers, and two fur babies. I work full time, and volunteer as much time as I can in my local community. I am lucky to live and raise my children in Centre Wellington. The community I live in has a suicide rate of more than 2x the Provincial Average. Over the past three years my children have lost friends (teenagers), my friends have lost children, siblings and parents to suicide. Something needs to be done to increase the services and awareness in our country, province and community!
I have grown up with a mother with Bi-Polar, who lives in Fergus and struggles daily with Mental Illness. My younger brother has lived with Bi-Polar and Schizophrenia for as long as I can remember. My Dad who is 80 years old, struggles daily to help my brother manage his daily needs, and is constantly searching for support, not only for my brother, but also for himself to help him now, and in the future. It has been very frustrating and difficult to find the right support and services, not only for my Mother and Brother, but also for my Dad.
My Focus for Mental Health
My goal is to use my knowledge of Health, Fitness, Nutrition and Supplementation to Educate and Support those who are at risk, and who are living with Mental Illness.
I offer my corporate presentations and nutritional counselling services by donation only, to factories, corporations and individuals to help promote life and help individuals manage their mental illness through counselling, nutrition, and exercise.
If you are interested in hosting a lunch & learn or presentation on Health & Wellness for your work, school or organization, in return for a donation to one of the two chosen mental healthcharities on my home page, please connect with me: firstname.lastname@example.org
