CEO, Registered Dietitian
In 2009 I completed a BSc in Nutrition from the University of Saskatchewan and my career began with the Saskatoon Health Region. I worked in a variety of settings including:
- Acute care/clinical nutrition;
- Primary health supporting the prenatal population through cooking classes and group support;
- Public health supporting infants and families;
- Long term care supporting adults of all ages
I have been in business as a consulting dietitian since 2012. My approach to nutrition counseling and messaging continues to evolve as I learn and grow from my clients and their needs, but maintaining or building a healthy relationship with food is at the forefront of services offered. You will find more about our approach, vision, and philosophy here. Today my primary focus includes supporting individuals and families with:
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS);
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS);
- Introducing solids to baby;
- Plant-based eating;
- Food allergies/sensitivies;
Faciliating group workshops and public speaking is a big part of my work that I love! I present to community groups, corporate wellness programs, post secondary schools, and professional AGMs/events.
I hold memberships with the Consulting Dietitians, and Media Networks under Dietitians of Canada, and with The Centre for Mindful Eating and the Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH).
In 2015, I completed Dietitians of Canada/Sport Dietitians Australia Intensive Sport Nutrition Course in Calgary, AB, and the Low FODMAP and IBS Strategy Training course from fellow dietitian, Stephanie Clairmont.
In 2018 completed the Non-Diet Approach for Dietitians course by dietitian, Fiona Willer. I recently completed the PCOS Training Course for Registered Dietitians by dietitian, Angela Grassi. I continue to expand on my knowledge and science surroudning digestive health issues, fertility, PCOS, intuitive eating, and the non-diet approach to health.
I've had the privilege of working with Huffington Post, Best Health Magazine, Canadian Living, Chatelaine, Toronto Tonic, The Globe and Mail, CTV News Morning Saskatoon, and continue as a regular guest on Saskatoon's Global News Morning. I was a media spokesperson for Dietitians of Canada from 2014 to 2017.
I'm a local food advocate and enjoy cooking! I consider myself a passable home cook with a passion for creating easy, healthful, and yummy family meals. Recipes are shared as part of our Blog under Weekday Meals.
