Rebecca Tryon graduated with her BS in physiology from UC Davis in 1998. Since that time she spent several years as a biologist working on in-vivo behavior models of CNS disorders, as well as in-vivo models of diabetes. From there she worked as a Clinical Research Associate developing protocols for Phase I clinical trials for a major pharmaceutical company. Her life took a huge turn when she decided to open her own business teaching yoga and Pilates and facilitating "holistic fitness" classes and workshops. She added Massage therapy and whole food nutritional counseling to her repertoire. She spent the following 3 years in Oregon working for a hospital-owned wellness center as a department manager, and health educator teaching nutrition-based lifestyle enhancement classes. She received her M.S. in Nutritional Biology in 2011.
