Catherine Bond has studied nutrition and is one of the co-founders of Jivita, a natural life made easy. Catherine graduated with a B.Com from Melbourne University in 1989 and worked in the business field before having a family and living overseas. Her youngest daughter was 9 years old, when she was diagnosed as having coeliac disease. Due to a lack of healthy gluten free foods available for people with coeliac disease, Catherine began her journey learning about organic foods, healthy food options, healthy habits and low-toxic lifestyles. She graduated with a Master of Science in Traditional Nutrition from Hawthorn University, State of California, USA, in 2015 and completed the Functional Nutrition Course at The Functional Nutrition Academy, Australia, in 2018. Catherine is passionate about raising peoples' consciousness and curiosity when they are buying products or services, so that their decisions reflect an understanding about the connection between optimal health and unnecessary toxins in our lives. She aspires to create a ripple effect through our community and the world enabling people to have readily available, honest information about low-toxic products and thereby creating a more sustainable, more healthy and vibrant tomorrow.
