To The Nutritional Therapy Association Community Members,

It is with great pleasure that I am writing on behalf of Nutritional Therapy Association’s Shareholders including Gray Graham, and the Governing Board members to announce the approval of Miriam G. Zacharias, NTC as a Board member effective April 1, 2019. Miriam successfully interviewed with key NTA leaders prior to submitting her application as an NTA Governing Board member. As she stated in that application:

“My vision is to build an army of thriving holistic professionals so real health care happens. Strong academic institutions that are built on a firm foundation that is credible and sustainable in the face of ongoing scrutiny in this industry is paramount to ensure this occurs. Since becoming affiliated with NTA over the past several years, it is evident that its programs have the potential to massively scale due to their simple yet strong appeal. It would be an honor to participate at a strategic level to ensure that happens.”

Miriam brings an array of strengths to our governing board, including:

  • + Board member experience governing for operating results and organizational goals success, currently as President of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals
  • + A career as a sales and marketing executive in corporate America with accountability for measurable, goal-oriented results
  • + Education and skills as an executive coach to leaders in a variety of industries
  • + Author, educator and public speaker in practice development for the holistic health industry
  • + An ability to think critically about governing guidance applied to operational realities
  • + A deep-seated passion for ensuring the success of the holistic nutrition profession in the larger context of national health care
  • + An emphasis on high level, shared emotional intelligence in the workplace

Miriam adds strength and understanding in our work together, and we welcome her as our governing partner and committed member of the NTA community.
