Alexandra (Alex) Jamieson
She’s a messenger with a mission. Wherever she goes, Alexandra “Alex” Jamieson speaks with conviction about the power of holistic nutrition and healthy detoxing. After collaborating and co-starring with Morgan Spurlock in the highly acclaimed, award-winning documentary, Super Size Me, Alex’s life dramatically changed. She traveled the world, attending screenings of the Oscar-nominated film, and lectured on the astounding ways in which food can positively transform everyday life, emphasizing the importance of healthy ingredients. She was a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Final Word, 30 Days and The National Health Test with Bryant Gumble, and these appearances catapulted her to national recognition.
The daughter of natural health advocates, Alex is a professionally trained gourmet chef. She studied in New York City at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts, then refined her techniques by cooking professionally in Milan, Italy. She went on to share her talents at a variety of popular New York City restaurants. Her knowledge of nutrition has been artfully developed through years of self-study and formal training.
Alex is also a certified health and nutrition counselor. She trained with groundbreaking pioneers in the field of nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (accredited by Columbia University’s Teacher’s College and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners). She has written several books including The Great America Detox Diet which she says offers “remarkably sane– and tasty– advice on how to detox, live healthfully and feel fantastic.”
A strong proponent for holistic nutrition and healthy living, Alex is particularly passionate about helping professional women enhance their ability to excel and achieve, using healthy food as the catalyst. Alex will moderate the panel discussion, Nutrition for the Empowered Woman, then will be sharing behind-the-scenes details from the making of Super Size Me during the luncheon at The WE Conference™ symposium.
