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, breastfeeding, digestive function, PCOS, fertility, diabetes, autoimmune conditions, chronic disease, and 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.

Vision

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 care.

Mission

To ensure clients feel heard and empowered in their personalized roadmap to wellbeing.

Our approach helps to:

Bridge gaps in health care, supporting those who may not have access to a nutrition professional or therapist within the public system.

Build relationships with doctors, therapists, allied health professionals, other care providers, community leaders, and businesses in order to best serve and support our clients and community.

Advocate against weight stigma and other forms of discrimination along with the physical and emotional harms and injustices associated with discrimination.

Foster healthy relationships with food and bodies as a journey towards self confidence, self worth, and improved wellbeing.

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.
