About Us

University of Cookie is the brainchild of Cookie Hansen, a nutritionist and mom to twins Poppy and Daisy. When she was a kid, Cookie dreamt of being a dean in a big college where all the bright students went. Since childhood, her dream has always been to educate and enlighten others.

As an adult, this dream lives on, but Cookie has already accepted that being a dean is off her list. Instead, she continues to educate and enlighten others via University of Cookie, a health and wellness blog that features articles about diet and nutrition, weight loss, wellness and general health.
