Peggy Kotsopoulos

Peggy Kotsopoulos is principal of beVibrant wellness consulting. Peggy is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Health Educator, and Culinary Consultant focused on teaching REAL health through lifestyle and dietary choices that are easy and delicious! Over the years, Peggy has inspired thousands of individuals to live a healthier and more vibrant life all through dietary changes and her talent for developing decadent healthy recipes. 

As a Commerce graduate from the University of Toronto, Peggy originally spent a successful, 7-year career in investments. However, during this time, Peggy couldn’t help but let her true passion for nutrition and healthy eating diffuse throughout the corporate sector.  At business meetings, while the standard fair of ‘bagels and danishes’ did not suffice, Peggy would bring her own guilt-free goodies.  As colleagues and clients became intrigued, the demand for information on food and health became so overwhelming that Peggy started leading seminars, introduced healthy snack options in the workplace, conducted food demos and eventually founded a company wide corporate wellness program. 

Finally, while attending a health conference in the U.S., Peggy reflected on what she really wanted in life and decided to follow her passion wholeheartedly.  She left her investment career, packed up her belongings and headed south.  Since then, she has completed her Health Educator Certification from Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach Florida, graduated from Living Light Culinary Arts Institute in California, obtained her RHN designation from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and founded beVibrant - her nutrition and wellness consultancy in Toronto. 

She now develops and delivers wellness programs servicing large corporate clients, she has instilled healthy habits amongst thousands of children and youth through the design and delivery of school wellness programs, acts as a culinary consultant to various food establishments, conducts regular workshops and seminars, and continues grow her private practice working closely with individuals on a one-to-one basis.

Peggy’s reach extends to television viewers across North America as the Resident Nutritionist on CBC’s Steven and Chris Show.  Other media segments include CBC News, CityTV and Virgin Radio. She also writes for various online and print publications. Peggy is dedicated to promoting long-term health and vitality. And she’s on a mission… to make REAL health mainstream!
