Samantha AttardThe Founder

Samantha Attard helps people tap into their true desires and achieve their goals.

She's a nutrition PhD, yoga instructor, and certified nutritionist. Happy Healthy Human was born when Sam was in grad school at UNC Chapel Hill. She was doing research into diabetes, hypertension, and obesity, and realized that people need personalized nutrition and medicine in order to achieve their best health. Sam dove into Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine, ancient traditions that prize personalization and prevention. She began to use these principles as a nutritionist and yoga instructor, in her Ayurveda retreats, and in her workshops with clients like Seventh Generation, Georgetown Medical School, and WeWork. And now, we're delivering that message of intention right to your home with Happy Healthy Human snacks. Sam's happiest when she's outdoors at a garden or near the ocean. Contact her at sam@behappyhealthyhuman.com.

Working with Sam has been a wonderful experience! Sam asked the right questions to get to know my goals and priorities quickly, and then offered highly customized solutions during our sessions. I’ve made several positive changes as a result of our time together. And, Sam is deeply knowledgeable and lovely to be around. Great experience, highly recommend!
- Jill W., Entrepreneur

Doing yoga with Sam has transformed my confidence in my skills and in myself. Sam is kind, perceptive, passionate, and prioritizes teaching over telling. I've gone from feeling "meh" about yoga to absolutely loving it, and more importantly, sticking to it! I HIGHLY recommend Sam to anyone looking to develop a passion for yoga.
