Announcing NANP's 2018 Award Recipients!

The NANP Awards were established in 2010 by NANP’s Board of Directors to honor and recognize exceptional individual achievements and contributions in the holistic nutrition industry. There are three categories for NANP members (Impact, Service and Going Up) and the Community Award for anyone in our industry.

Please join us in celebrating our 2018 Award Recipients...

Jonathan Posey 2018 Impact Award Recipient   2018 Impact Award

As the Director of the Council of Holistic Health Educators, Jonathan Posey has been working tirelessly to develop and implement a resource and action committee dedicated to protecting and ensuring the holistic nutritionist's right to practice in all states of the us.

Jonathan is the Founder, Executive Director, and Policy Director for the Council of Holistic Health Educators. He brings over a decade of experience in lobbying, public policy, and grassroots activism in food and consumer safety. Jonathan began his career on Capitol Hill as a congressional aide, then moved to the private sector as a lobbyist, representing food and consumer safety firms, as well as other healthcare and technology interests.

Recognizing the need for an organization that exclusively represented the interests of the holistic health and nutrition community, Jonathan created a coalition of like-minded holistic schools and organizations to protect the practice of holistic health. This coalition grew to become the Council we know today.

Anne Fischer Silva 2018 Service Award Recipient
2018 Service Award

Anne won this award because she has demonstrated an elevated level of service & professionalism in our field. 20 years ago, she helped develop the original curriculum for the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA) and continues to support the school as a lead instructor. For many years she was a Weston A. Price chapter leader in Sonoma County, where she lives, educating on the importance of properly prepared, nutrient-dense whole food. She has continued to be an example of excellence not only in her own community and the NTA but also for individuals seeking health across the country.

She runs a very successful phone practice with a full load of clients. A few years ago, she started a new business offering advanced training to vetted health practitioners on the topic of ordering, reading & interpreting labs. Over many years, she has nurtured a relationship with these labs and because of this, they have approved her training so that graduates are vetted to use these labs as well. As unlicensed practitioners, these types of opportunities greatly expand the potential of our work.

Anne is passionate about digestive health and food sensitivities and is a well-loved speaker and mentor. Her grace and poise in the nutrition community set a positive example for colleagues and students alike. 

Ashlee Rowland 2018 Going Up Award Recipient   2018 Going Up Award

Here's what the nominator said about Ashlee...

I first met Ashlee when she was teaching classes at our local Natural Grocers as part of an internship for her degree in nutrition. I attended several of the five classes she taught. I love her knowledge and enthusiasm that she shares with all who meet her. I’ve continued to follow her on social media and also attended another class at the health and fitness expo last year. By this count, Ashlee is well deserving of NANP’s Going Up Award.
