Marsha K. Cohen, M.S., C.N.S. is a cognitive nutritionist who was raised in the Midwest where she came to believe “people dig their grave with their teeth”. She watched her father die from coronary artery disease having also had cancer and hypertension. It was at that time Marsha became determined to help people improve their quality of life by experiencing the satisfaction of controlling their appetite, of learning what motivates them to eat when not hungry, and of avoiding foods that are inappropriate for them.
Marsha received her Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from the University of Illinois and her Masters in Biology/Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport, Connecticut. In addition, she has a strong foundation in psychology. She has been in private practice for eighteen years with clients of all walks of life including those of national renown. She has done consulting work in the private sector as a clinical nutritionist, health educator, lecturer, and facilitator of a nationwide, nutrition-information network.
