Mrs. Renata Mangrum To All Instructors
Renata’s fascination with nutrition started when she was 12, when her mother brought home a book describing the relationship between vitamins and health. That initial interest led to a continuing exploration into the many influences and factors impacting healthy decisions: time, budgets, food access, and culinary resourcefulness. Most of her adult life has been spent in metropolitan DC, having arrived in the US as a college student after being raised in Australia and her home country of Brazil. She is looking forward to celebrating her 25th wedding anniversary with her college sweetheart, and together they have homeschooled their four children for over 15 years. Renata is active in women’s ministry at her local church and loves to garden.
