My approach to nutrition and healthy eating can be explained with one, short word - REAL.
I strive to provide evidence based health information along with real and honest answers to questions.
I completed both a Bachelor of Arts and Science (BASc) and Masters of Health Science (MHSc) in Nutrition Communications at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario.
I then completed a dietetic internship in a hospital setting where I launched my career as a Registered Dietitian, staying on as a staff member. I gained clinical experience in the hospital setting working with patients living with cancer, undergoing surgery, struggling with gastrointestinal disorders and/or facing other acute health issues.
I moved on from my clinical experience to an opportunity to gain 'food knowledge' while working as a retail dietitian. This allowed me to combine the health science world of nutrition with my love of sharing food knowledge and skills: an all-star combo in my books!
I now divide my time between working with clients one-on-one, advocating for the future of dietetics and teaching nutrition at an Ontario college to the next generation of health professionals. I love the variety in my career and believe the diverse work experiences I've had has made me a well balanced Dietitian and nutrition coach.
