My WELL experience

As the in-house nutritionist for Food Rascal, a progressive boutique caterer and food consulting company, I helped implement the WELL Nourishment concept at Lendlease's global headquarters at International Tower Three in Barangaroo, Sydney. It is the first WELL New & Existing Interiors Project Type to gain the top level platinum ranking in Australia and the largest globally.
