Sarah Ramsden’s bio:

Sarah Ramsden is a Personal Coach and Nutritionist who believes that taking control of your health, is like a gateway drug for taking control of the rest of your life.

She is obsessed with fermented foods, and is the creator of “Fearless Fermentation”, where she provides online fermentation classes for beginners that dispel myths, and break through the worry of things going moldy. Her goal is to get fermented foods back on the dinner table as an everyday condiment.

In her work as a personal coach, she works with women who’ve won the battle with major health issues, but are left feeling like an imposter in their own life: out of place, everywhere they used to feel at home. Coached by a brain tumour survivor who’s been EXACTLY where they are, Sarah helps her clients stop wondering if they’re making the most of their second chance, and turn it into the most exciting and meaningful time of their life.
