How Gregory is building a better working world

“At the crossroads of diet and health care, food becomes wellness as I help EY clients formulate more quality food choices that are plant-based, less processed, locally sourced and personalized.

To extend and improve the quality of our lives, I help reduce childhood hunger, improve our daily living and eliminate chronic illnesses in our aging population. We cannot add more days to our life, but we can add more life to our days.”
