In addition to being founder and CEO of NOURISH Network®, Inc., Lia Huber is a widely published writer and recipe developer for top national food magazines, including Cooking Light, Better Homes & Gardens, Prevention, EatingWell and Health, and is launching her web TV show, Real Meals with Lia. She also teaches at venues like Rancho La Puerta Resort and Spa and appears frequently on television, including ABC-TV in San Francisco and LiveWell Network.
In 2012, the International Association of Culinary Professionals named her Entrepreneur of the Year for her work with NOURISH Network. Lia started her company to empower people to make a lasting shift from processed to real foods by moving through the five stages of the NOURISH Evolution, while inspiring a mindset that allows them to fully embrace all the benefits of doing so.
She has consulted on branding, messaging and marketing for companies like British Airways, Earthbound Farm and Spectrum Organic Products for over 15 years, and coached individuals and small businesses on creating and launching their own authentic brands. With NOURISH Network, she has crafted corporate partnerships with companies, such as Jovial pasta and Fetzer’s organic label, Bonterra Vineyards, where she is their chef and “organic life aficionada.”
Lia has an MBA from University of Florida, a BA in Communication with a minor in French from Tulane University, and studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and the Culinary Institute of America Greystone in Napa Valley. She has served on the board of Slow Food Sonoma County and as the Chair of the Food Writers, Editors and Publishers section of the International Association of Culinary Professionals.
Lia lived in New York, New Orleans, Paris, Greece, Costa Rica and San Francisco before putting down roots in Healdsburg, CA, with her husband, Christopher, and daughter, Noemi.
