Michiko is a Registered Dietitian raised on daily medication and meals of tofu and seaweed in Nara, Japan. Throughout her unique journey as a mother, telecommunications researcher, caregiver, and nutritionist in clinical, community and educational settings, she has experienced the limitations of modern medicine and food systems. These own struggles led her to rediscover the value of ancestral wisdom for wellness. She currently provides nutritional consultation at a recovery center in New Jersey while sharing plant based whole food cooking, nutrition education, and mindfulness in her community. She is an active participant of Urasenke Chado in Manhattan and the Center for Mind, Body, and Medicine (CMBM).
Michiko is very honored to join the IFNA community, and continue sharing the "wholistic" approach into boundless communities in both the US and Japan.
