Meet the Team

Marni Larsen, MSc, RD, Franchisee

Marni was born and raised in Cranbrook, BC. She grew up enjoying the outdoors, with weekends often spent on the nearby ski hill in Kimberley, BC in the winters, or at one of the many surrounding lakes in the summers. She became interested in the field of nutrition after having her own struggles with food and her weight – even though she was incredibly active. As a result, she started to research how food can impact your weight and came to discover just how important nutrition is for overall health. Through this process she also realized that she had a passion for nutrition! She decided to move to Alberta to study nutrition at the University of Alberta, and graduated with distinction 4 years later. After completing her dietetic internship in 2005, she officially became a Registered Dietitian and in 2016 she went on to complete a Master of Science degree in Nutrition and Health Promotion, expanding her expertise and knowledge of nutrition even further. She has worked in a variety of settings over the years, but has always known that she eventually wanted to use her own personal experience and struggles with weight, and passion for nutrition to help others. She believes in balanced nutrition and helping people get back to their roots by enjoying more whole foods. As one of the owners of the Simply for Life clinic, she will work with you to set specific goals, while providing you with advice and guidance to help you meet all your goals – and ultimately enjoy long term health and wellness!
