“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” – Socrates
I have a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from the University of Saskatchewan, and an active membership with Dietitians of Canada. My background is primarily in Clinical Nutrition, specifically working in neurosciences and geriatrics.
During my clinical work, I saw recurrent issues for individuals who had undergone bariatric surgery, but lacked nutrition counseling and support. I became aware that postoperative complications, including poor nutritional status, were prevalent. I developed a passion for supporting individuals both pre‐ and post‐bariatric surgery with eating habits, mindful eating coaching, tips to reduce discomforts, preventing nutrient deficiencies, and meal planning.
In my spare time, I work as a hip hop teacher with Brenda’s School of Baton and Dance. I love to cook, bake, and garden. My personal interest in food leads me to try new recipes and experiment with new flavors. I am most inspired to cook quick and healthy meals, maximizing nutritional intake despite a busy lifestyle.
Through my experience as a Clinical Dietitian and dance instructor, I’ve seen the progress one can make when there is dedication, hard work, and support from family and friends. I want to be able to help you meet your goals. It is my mission to provide you with the most up‐to‐date nutrition evidence, and help you make sustainable change that will fit your life. It is never too late for change!
