Chief Empowerment Officer
Heather Borders has over 15 years of professional experience spanning curriculum development, training, medical device marketing, sales and customer support, product management, product development, and market development. After a personal experience with addressing high cholesterol through a plant-based diet, she was inspired to help others improve their health by overcoming the common challenges associated with implementing sustainable lifestyle changes.
In 2012, Heather founded Kailo Nutrition and is dedicated to applying her professional experience and personal passion for healthy living towards health, wellness, plant-based nutrition, and preventative medicine. Partnered with Chef Lisa, she currently runs plant-based culinary nutrition and wellness classes in Jacksonville, Florida and launching a women’s retreat for health and performance in Cumberland Island, Georgia this May 2017. She describes herself as an ambitious, curious, energetic, science-loving, goal-setting, entrepreneurial type person who is loving every moment of helping others find ways to make healthy happen.

Director, Culinary Empowerment
Chef Lisa is a graduate of Living Light Culinary Institute, a Gourmet Raw Culinary School. She also holds certificates from Rouxbe Cooking School as a plant-based chef and from Drs. Rick and Karin Dina as a Science of Raw Nutrition Educator.
A lifelong vegetarian, Lisa dove deeper into healing through diet after a cancer diagnosis in her twenties. Adopting a whole food, plant-based diet, along with a regular yoga practice, has helped her stay cancer-free for almost 20 years.
It is Lisa’s firm belief that eating healthy can be easy, satisfying and most importantly, DELICIOUS. It is her passion to teach others how to create meals that are not only packed with nutrients, but also taste good, so that they can make a lifestyle shift to a healthy diet WITHOUT sacrificing flavor. She manages her blog, Ginger Loves Garlic, and lives with her furry child, Max.
