Mark Cerkvenik

Food for Life Instructor

Mark grew up on the southwest side of Chicago and worked in healthcare for nearly 40 years for organizations such as Loyola University Health System and Northwestern Medicine, training and coaching clinical and non-clinical leaders. 

Although a  vegetarian (eating cheese, fish and veggies) for over 25 years, not until he adopted a whole food plant-based diet did he see tremendous improvement in his health and a path to maintain a healthy weight.

In addition to being a Food For Life Instructor, Mark provides coaching for individuals and couples on transitioning to a sustainable plant based diet as well as community workshops and workplace seminars on a variety of health and wellness related topics.


Serving cities and surrounding areas of Naperville, Aurora, Joliet, Kankakee and surrounding areas; South and Southwest Suburbs of Chicago; Northwest Indiana
