Adrienne Nye, Editor

Adrienne has a B.Sc. in Biology from UVic and an M.Sc. in Plant Science from UBC. After years of high stress, poor dietary habits and minimal exercise, she began searching for a healthier lifestyle to heal her troubled digestive system and mind/body/spirit disconnection. This led her to experiment with raw and whole foods, and to practice yoga. After seeing vast improvements to her health she was hooked. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2011.

Adrienne’s love of communication, science and learning landed her a job in academic publishing as an Editorial Assistant for the science journal Molecular Ecology in 2011. She was thrilled to join the team at Young and Raw in June 2013 and looks forward to inspiring as many people as possible to build a more compassionate, balanced and loving world. Inside and out.

Adrienne also has a strong background in the Arts.  She began singing at the age of 4, dancing at the age of 6, and at the age of 9 landed the role of Young Cosette in the bilingual production of Les Misérables in Montreal, Quebec in 1990.  Since then, she has performed extensively in a variety of film, TV, theatre, music and dance productions in Canada, Europe and the US. Along with working for Young and Raw, in her spare time she focuses on pursuing roles in Film and TV productions, singing and occasionally writing her own music.

A genuine polymath, this actor, singer, songwriter and science-lover has an insatiable thirst for knowledge. After years of rigorous study in both the Arts and Sciences, Adrienne understands that life for her is all about balance, heart and perseverance.
