I am writing to you today on behalf of Jugo Juice to thank you for the past, current and future involvement of yourself and Health Stand Nutrition Consulting Inc. with our company. As we expand our working relationship from nutritional analysis to broader strategy, it becomes ever more apparent how closely aligned our values of balanced healthy eating are. Working with you to date has been both an extremely valuable and enjoyable experience.
Jugo Juice is a brand built on the value and the need for healthy food and beverage options as an alternative to traditional fast food. We have appreciated being able to rely on your expertise as a dietician to help us shape our menu offerings in order to best align with consumer needs and trends. Your in-depth knowledge of all the components of the science of nutrition combined with an appreciation for the emotional enjoyment of food has translated into brand-right, executable ideas. You are always willing to share your thoughts, offer your expert opinion and ultimately help us shape the best direction.
We have also greatly appreciated your expertise in speaking and education. When we have had opportunity to put together a speaking engagement series or educational video series, you have been quick to enhance the ideas and round out the program. On the execution side, it is your organization skills and thorough follow up that ensure it gets done – thank you! You have taken every project to its maximum, and it shows in the results. It has led to some very successful past projects such as the video blog series and the upcoming office speaker series.
Thank you for your contribution to our brand and our business; we look forward to a continuing successful relationship.

Fleishman-Hillard Canada (FH) worked with Andrea Holwegner on a Canada-wide media tour for the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency (CEMA). FH was engaged in June to conduct a media tour in July. This was exceptionally tight timing, especially given that CEMA’s national mandate meant that we targeted eleven English-speaking markets. Throughout, Andrea was accommodating, professional and an exemplary spokesperson. Her passion for healthy living, paired with her confident and enthusiastic delivery resulted in extremely positive, well-messaged coverage. We look forward to working with her again!

WOW—-We don’t have to be perfect. What a relief! Andrea spoke at our annual fall conference, and just lit up the room with her energized, dynamic, and inspiring presentation. The feedback from our participants was just glowing; like they’ve been renewed and given permission to focus on what really counts at meal time. The real life approach to food and nutrition is so much more attainable and sustainable. Our group consisted of Food and Nutrition managers, dietitians, and food industry reps, and all were engaged with Andrea’s messages.

We can’t thank you enough for your contributions to our HealthCare Education day, especially on such tight timelines. The amount of work you put into tailoring your message and your presentation to our crowd was very clear. Your presentation was an incredible opportunity for our customers to take something away not only for their professional lives, but for their personal lives as well. Additionally, your energy and ability to relate to the audience was invaluable as a presenter. Your presentation truly transcended age and time, and everybody was able to relate and walk away with something to help them out. Thank you so much for inspiring that in our customers and in us. We hope to have you back again.”
