CEO, Registered Dietitian1-306-717-6291
In 2009 I completed a BSc in Nutrition from the University of Saskatchewan and my career began with the Saskatoon Health Region where I gained experience in a variety of settings:
- Acute care/clinical nutrition;
- Primary health supporting the prenatal population;
- Public health supporting infants and families;
- Adult Long term care
I have been in business as a consulting dietitian since 2012 and my approach to nutrition counseling and media messaging continues to evolve as I learn and grow with my clients, as I learn more about the role of discrimination on health, and as the science evolves. However, respectful, weight inclusive care with a focus on building healthy food relationships leads the services I provide. You will find more about our approach, vision, and philosophy here. Today I primarily support clients with:
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
- Functional gut disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Introducing solids to baby (online course)
- Food relationship counseling
- Intuitive Eating
- Media - television, radio, writing, blogging, social media content
- Professional speaking
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 Network under Dietitians of Canada. I'm a member of the Weight Inclusive Dietitians Support Group (Canada).
