Kim Malcolm is an accomplished, certified Nutritionist who genuinely lives her passion for food and lifestyle as medicine. She has worked globally throughout her career, meeting with private clients, writing and managing nutritional seminars for hundreds of people, creating whole food recipes, teaching cooking classes, and consulting to chefs and cafés.
Kim’s breadth of experience and decades of learning have given her deep wisdom about the principles that underpin holistic, healthy living. Her educational content is grounded in the conviction that we are all able to make transformational changes for our overall health by combining the science of nutrition with our own personal intuition. This approach provides practitioners and clients alike with a framework for making healthy choices that are both evidenced-based and conscious of one’s unique DNA, culture and life experience.
Her curiosity about natural, whole foods as fuel for the body is a common thread throughout her early childhood memories growing up in New Zealand. Her natural propensity to gather knowledge on this subject set the course for a lifestyle centred on nutritional wisdom and has supported her journey to become a woman who inspires well-being internationally.
Kims’ authenticity supports others to find their own ‘Bespoke Nutrition for a Holistic Lifestyle’ through her brand, Health Whisperer. ®
