After learning about the medicinal and nutritional benefits of fruit and vegetable juice, she developed an almost evangelical desire to share what she had learned with as many people as possible. She had also just become vegan, and was finding it hard to find anywhere to eat in Toronto. She had returned to Toronto intending to go to university. Instead, student loan in hand, she bought two industrial juicers and hit the road. She set up a booth and juiced wherever she could: Lollapalooza, Edgefest, Kumbaya Aids Benefit, Caribana, and at various health lectures.
