Hi there! my name is Tammy and I am the Healthy Eating Specialist at the Wade Avenue Store in Raleigh. I am energized and passionate about making healthy lifestyle changes, even it they happen just a little at a time! I am here to educate both team members and customers about healthy eating and our Whole Foods Market initiative, Health Starts Here.
My fascination with preventative health began while working as a pharmacy technician, grew as I became an avid runner, and eventually led me to be a Community Health Volunteer with the United States Peace Corps. I spent two years overseas, in a small Turkmenistan village; teaching about health and nutrition. This is where I realized my love of nutrition had become less of a hobby and more of my long-term passion.
A quote from Dr. Ann Wigmore has always stuck with me throughout the years, "The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison." I believe that we should consider this every time we sit down to eat a meal.
I have my B.A. degree in Communications, so that should tell you that I love to talk! And I would love to talk with you about your health goals, concerns, and to show you around the store.
Please feel free to contact me, drop by, or shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
I can't wait to meet you!
