Paula Branson comes to PlantPure Communities as a passionate advocate for public education regarding the extraordinary health benefits of a whole plant based diet, organics, and environmental responsibility. Paula is a lawyer licensed in three states and practiced as Senior Counsel for two large hotel companies. She also served as Vice President/Legal Counsel for the banking services company that created the idea of putting banks into grocery stores and was an adjunct law professor.
In the height of Paula’s legal career, she became very ill. Although she consulted with many medical doctors and was prescribed handfuls of medications, her condition deteriorated to the point of rendering her disabled for many years. After many years of no success from mainstream medicine, Paula visited a holistic health center where she was put on a raw, organic plant based diet. Her condition drastically improved. Based upon this seemingly miraculous event, Paula immersed herself into studying the health problems caused by food and how those health challenges can be reversed by eliminating toxins in the diet. It is Paula’s goal to bring to public awareness the information that she discovered in her studies that can be so powerful in eliminating needless suffering caused by toxic food.
In addition to her Juris Doctorate, Paula has obtained numerous certifications in Plant Based Nutrition and is certified as a Science of Plant-Based Raw Food Instructor, Health Minister, Certified Holistic Health Coach, and Gourmet Raw Chef and Instructor. Paula is also the organizer of a 700+ member plant based meetup group in Atlanta, is a licensed facilitator of the Stanford Medical School Chronic Disease Self Management Program, has served on the Executive Committee of the Institute for Responsible Technology, and has been the guest speaker for various community groups and civic organizations on the topic of Food Politics and corruption in the American Food Supply. She has also organized many public education events regarding toxins in the American food supply and how to avoid them at venues including medical schools, fire departments, high schools, and educational festivals.
