My professional experience includes working as a Clinical Dietitian in Calgary, AB where I provided support to adults of all ages in long-term care, acquired brain injury, and hospice settings. In these settings, I considered myself a “jack of all trades” where I supported individuals with chronic conditions, gastrointestinal issues, swallowing difficulties, weight concerns, and enteral nutrition.
During my time as a Clinical Dietitian, I worked with many individuals who expressed life-long struggles of weight concerns and poor food relationships/disordered eating. My passion lies in helping individuals of all ages with their nutrition-related goals in a way that will prioritize a healthy relationship with food, body, and overall wellbeing. Today my areas of focus include:
- General nutrition support
- Women's health
- Counseling to improve food relationship
- Intuitive Eating
- Supporting individuals with weight concerns
- Infant and childhood nutrition
I am currently a member of the Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH) as well as the Saskatchewan Dietitians Association.
Recently, my continued learning has focused on the non-diet and Health at Every Size (HAES) approaches to health. In alignment, I support individuals to improve measures of health without the focus on weight reduction or changing a person's body size/shape.
