#SWYS19 Speaker Alert - Meet Noni Robinson

Noni Robinson.png

As a child in New York, I watched my grandmother cook fresh, whole foods each day not only for our family, but for neighbors all over Long Island as well. Witnessing the sharing of healthy food, homeopathic remedies and recommendations for traditional medicine. I learned at an early age that love, care, community and wellness are integral parts of the same system.

In 2010 I founded Robinson Nutrition Group to ensure that the scope of my work encompasses social justice as it relates to nutrition, health and wellness. I engage clients to build personalized, culturally relevant and sustainable regimens to help them meet their health goals. With over twenty years of progressive experience, I apply theories of behavioral change to create and implement comprehensive plans for holistic health.

I recently started a new movement, Black Girls Eat. We are a multimedia platform for women of color to have “real talk” about our relationships with food. We are a one stop shop for resources, regarding nutrition, wellness, and living a healthy lifestyle. Black Girls Eats’ mission is to be a movement that inspires, educates, and supports women to be our best selves, beginning with what we put on our forks. I am passionate about making a positive impact on the health of those that struggle with healthy nutritional habits and overall wellness. I am determined to contribute to building strong communities by providing wellness resources for Black Women.

I am a proud Lincoln University Alumna, and attended Howard University for my graduate coursework in Nutritional Science. I am a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. I have a twenty something year old daughter Imani, who is an actor and screenwriter. In my spare time I enjoy grocery shopping, cooking, traveling, collecting artwork, jewelry, and making folks laugh. I recently discovered a love of d’jaying!
