Soon after graduating from college in California, Rebecca Allina volunteered for the United States Peace Corps in Iran. That was a pivotal experience for her and when she returned to the US she began to question many aspects of our society including the way that food was produced and the effects of industrial food production on the health of our bodies and the planet. While she was raising 2 daughters and managing a medical office she earned a Masters Degree in Education from University of California, Santa Barbara. She has facilitated health retreats, established a health foundation, been a hospice counselor and volunteered for an international health organization.
