Serena Poon is an American nutritionist and celebrity chef.[1][2]

Early life[edit]

Poon originally started her career as a Political Science student at UC Berkeley.[3] Poon's focus and devotion to healthy eating was spurred on from an early age when both her mother and her father where diagnosed with cancer with two years apart from each other, as this had a profound effect on family.[4] Recognising the impact food can have on the mind and body, Poon enrolled back into UC Berkeley, completing a degree in Nutrition and then later on she did her chefs training at the Le Cordon Bleu.[5][6]

Career[edit]

Whilst at Le Cordon Bleu, Poon was selected to attend and cook at the Night Before Oscars Party at the Beverly Hills Hotel. This event inspired Poon to create a business focussed on cooking, nutrition and the glamour of Hollywood. In Poon's last semester at Le Cordon Bleu, she was a granted an internship at the Playboy Mansion,[7] and was brought on full-time later on with Playboy Enterprises. During her time at Playboy, numerous guests of Hugh Hefner would reach out to Poon for help with catering their private events, thus helping her build up her Private Chef Business.[8] Whilst working alongside the challenging schedules of high-profile clients, Poon experienced a lack of proper daily nutrition intake leading to exhaustion and stress. In 2018, Poon launched Just Add Water,[9][10] a conveniently packaged superfood supplement and recently launched Serena Loves.
