Carin Hume

Carin is a registered dietitian with a passion for using a whole foods diet and functional medicine approach to helping her clients regain their health and thrive.  She completed her undergraduate dietetic studies at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa, followed by obtaining an MSc in sports nutrition from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.
