Celebrity Chef, Certified Nutritionist, and Reiki Master Serena Poon has made it her mission to promote further education around the mindful combination of food, nutrition and healing intuition through her unique Culinary Alchemy® programs. A leading chef, nutritionist and Reiki master to the Hollywood elite, Serena sets herself apart in a saturated industry with her genuine passion for curating intentional healing and wellness programs designed to help people achieve optimal, sustainable health.
Serena’s driven devotion of focusing on the whole body, mind and soul wellness is inspired by the profound effect cancer had on her family, with both her mother and father diagnosed within two years of each other. Recognizing the immense impact food has on the mind, body and spirit, Serena welcomed a new path in her life and began her career as a nutritionist and chef with degrees from UC Berkeley and the esteemed Le Cordon Bleu’s most intense and comprehensive programming – Grand Diploma, which is inclusive of all advanced culinary techniques as well as advanced levels of pastry, confectionary, dessert making etc. Serena built a list of private clients and introduced dietary, health and wellness planning into her classic fine dining services. Serena is certified as a Reiki Master for Usui Shiki Ryoho as well as advanced knowledge of the symbols in the Usui System of Natural Healing. She is also certified with Quantum Touch Healing and she is also part of the International Association of Reiki Professionals.
In 2018, she launched her health and wellness line, Just Add Water®, and continues the expansion of her lifestyle brand Serena Loves®. Serena also inspires others to live their best lives through her recently launched television show, Serena Loves TV.
