Experience

 

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
  •  

 

 

Memberships/Continued Education

 

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.
