We are a team of Registered Dietitians (and a Registered Social Worker), each with a specialized area of expertise including:
- Infant and child growth and development
- Digestive function
- Autoimmune conditions
- Thyroid conditions
- Chronic disease
- Mental health
We acknowledge body diversity and practice from a weight inclusive lens using self compassion, science-based nutrition, and food relationship counseling.
We hold space for clients to share their lived experience in order to fully appreciate their perspectives, concerns, and barriers.
To eliminate weight stigma in health care, and ease the burden of chronic conditions, mental illness, and other health complications using a weight inclusive approach.
To ensure clients feel heard and empowered in their personalized roadmap to well-being.
Ultimately we want our clients to feel or achieve:
- Confidence: through support, listening, validation, and encouraging body curiosity (rather than control) in their journey with us.
- Improved markers of health: which may include biochemical markers (blood work), or other markers such as energy, gastrointestinal function, mental health, or sleep.
- Chronic conditions that are better understood or better managed: we appreciate the importance of therapy, medications, access to health care, social factors, and the role of nutrition in chronic disease risk and outcomes.
- Improved relationship with food and body: moving away from dieting cycles and disordered eating, and making peace with food. We recognize the harms of systemic anti-fat bias that make this healing difficult. As such, we support fat liberation, and advocate against weight discrimination.
- Body knowledge: we believe that the individual's lived experience and knowledge of their body matters.

Truth and Reconciliation Acknowledgement
As CEO and owner of Food to Fit Nutrition Inc., I recognize that we exist on Treaty 4 and 6 traditional territories and homeland of the Metis, and that our practice would not exist today without the Treaties. I recognize the harms and injustices of the past and present and the role of colonialism in perpetuating present-day racism. We acknowledge that nutrition and medical experts, along with the federal government, had conducted unethical nutrition experiments on Canadian residential school children in the 1940s and 1950s. Today we are dedicated to advocating for social justice, change, and solidarity through education, listening, advocating, changing systems, and giving back to the community.
I have completed the Indigenous Canada course through the University of Alberta and I encourage all new non-Indigenous associates to complete this course or equivalent. I continue to learn about Indigenous history and issues surrounding colonialism, and I understand this is life-long learning.
