Teacher Spotlight: Victoria Behm
Our growing class list would be quite difficult to pull off without the awesome instructors - and businesses - we've been so honored to meet. We'd like to give you the same opportunity to get to know our Chattery teachers a bit better.
Victoria Behm holds a Master's degree in Nutrition and Integrative Health and is a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) practitioner. She currently teaches graduate level nutrition and cooking courses online and do research and program management for the CNS certifying body. She and her family reside in beautiful Chattanooga, TN.
My big dream is to empower people to eat well, feel confident in the kitchen and to finally be able to live out their own amazing purpose. I firmly believe that the food we put into our bodies, which becomes part and parcel of our physical self, is the foundation to health and healing. I’ve seen this principle at work in my own life and in the lives of my clients. Food is medicine, not just for the body, but for our whole being. What we eat matters, how we eat matters, and many of us have not been taught how to nourish ourselves and our families in the most basic way. I love working with clients and in the community to foster the skills and knowledge needed to bring health care back into the home through herbs, essential oils and fresh, whole foods.
How did you get started in your profession?
My grandmother was a healer and after some soul-searching, I decided to follow in her footsteps - using food and plants as medicine to heal people and the world.
