Jen Brewer

Global Nutrition Consultant

Jen Brewer received her dietetics degree in 1999 from BYU and has been working as a dietitian in various capacities ever since. She has focused her work in the community setting and completed her masters degree in school and community gardens in 2015. She helps classrooms set up hydroponic gardens and incorporate agriculture into their curriculum. Jen has been working as a global nutrition consultant since 2014 and focuses much of her work in Guatemala and Mozambique, working with various organizations to fight malnutrition and mental stunting in children. Jen recently finished a two-year research project in conjunction with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Maya Health Alliance, and Cultiva International to study the effects of family gardens in diversifying the diets in women and children in rural Guatemalan communities. When she is not fighting global malnutrition or traveling with her husband and seven children, you will often find her in her pantry. Eating chocolate chips. Straight from the bag.
