My name is Lina Noriega. I am a Dietitian Nutritionist who graduated from Pontifical Xavierian University of Bogota, Colombia. After I finished my studies, I felt the need to dig deeper into my knowledge and enrolled the master’s degree program in Nutrition and Metabolism with emphasis on Clinical Nutrition at the University of Barcelona and Rivora i Virgili, which helped me understand human metabolism functioning and the adequate nutrition during special situations, such as illnesses. Besides, my love for children and the importance of having a healthy diet withing early childhood, led me to enroll to a Postgraduate program in Paediatric Nutrition at Boston University.
While performing my practice, I understood that the job of a Nutritionist goes beyond prescribing personalized diets. Emotional support and permanent advice are crucial. Once this was clear to me, I decided to obtain a nutritional coaching certification with Nutritional coaching experts. I am passionate about my work because I have the opportunity to help many people to improve their health condition and thus their quality of life. Being able to listen to people and understand their needs is fundamental in my job, as it is motivating my clients and give them the right tools to have a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet.
