Jamie spent the first decade of post-grad life working as a personal trainer, rehabilitation assistant, and as a nutrition/sports nutrition consultant, working with a range of individuals and groups. After leaving the fitness industry, Jamie became a researcher, programme writer, and presenter for one of New Zealand’s largest organisational health and well-being companies.
Jamie now operates under his new brand, Being Human, consulting to organisations such as Airways New Zealand, Flight Centre NZ, Ngai Tahu Tourism, and the New Zealand Green Party Aotearoa (political party). He is a researcher and writer for DallasHartwig.com and developer of the More Social Less Media programme. He runs a small private nutrition practice, as well as a small strength coaching studio. He is the founder and current President of the Ancestral Health Society of New Zealand.
Born of the South Island of New Zealand (where he calls home) Jamie takes a deep interest in both human and environmental health, looking for leads and possible answers to many of our major issues within an evolutionary biology and ancestral health framework. He can normally be found in close proximity to good espresso, mountain bikes, and a handful of research papers.

Born and raised in Russia, Anastasia moved to Australia at the age of 17. With science being her first love, she completed a Diploma in Pathology and a degree in Medical Science, majoring in microbiology and anatomy. Working in the clinical microbiology labs sparked her interest in the medical aspects of science and Anastasia took a plunge to become a doctor. Dividing her time between medical school lectures and working as a part time fitness instructor gave her good understanding of the importance of preventative medicine and the challenges involved in the application of diet and lifestyle advice.
Anastasia became interested in evolutionary medicine and got involved in the Ancestral Health movement while still a medical student, first writing a successful blog and then traveling to the US to attend and later present at the Ancestral Health Symposium. With her partner, nutritionist Jamie Scott, Anastasia formed an alliance with Whole9 and became Whole 9 South Pacific, running public nutrition seminars in Australia and New Zealand. In 2014, together with a passionate group of health professionals, researchers and educated laypeople, they formed the Ancestral Health Society of New Zealand of which she is currently the Vice President.
Now residing in New Zealand, Anastasia works in a busy acute care medical clinic. She spends her free time volunteering for the Society, studying for her specialist College of Urgent Care registration, exploring the stunning natural environment of New Zealand, and trying to stay upright on her mountain bike.
