Regina Hecker is a scientist, author, entrepreneur, yoga guide and passionate about plant-based nutrition and healthy living.
She worked for scientific and medical research organizations in the US and Canada as well as in Europe where she published research studies in molecular biology and pediatric oncology. With the aim to identify, support and finance most promising therapies, she worked for and consulted healthcare investment funds, pharma and biotech companies alike.

She has recently founded the Swiss-based venture Dr. Healthy Nut, an organization devoted to building awareness for how a plant-based whole food diet can make both the body and the world a healthier and happier place to live.
Regina holds a PhD in cancer biology (University Zurich, Switzerland), a MSc in molecular biology (Max Planck Institute, Germany), a Master in Biotechnology Management (IE Business School, Spain), a certificate in plant-based nutrition (T.
