I am a Registered Dietitian, fueled by a true passion for nutrition education. My mission is to help you live a life free of food rules - without restriction or fear as I believe that all food is great! I take great pride in caring for the human body and helping others. My goal is to inspire others to achieve their personal health goals while living a lifestyle full of balance and moderation. It is important to realize that nutrition and food choices can make all the difference when trying to prevent or treat chronic health conditions, improve sleep, physical activity and overall quality of life.
I have nutrition experience to provide services to clients of all ages and for a variety of concerns such as: weight management, heart diseases, diabetes, IBS and other digestive health concerns such as picky eating and meal planning. I assist clients through goal setting, maintaining and monitoring progress with personally tailored nutrition advice.

When interacting with my clients, I approach nutrition care with the whole person model and take into account daily activities, which includes mind-body, as well as social, environmental and cultural influences. I use a non-dieting approach while encompassing evidence-based nutrition therapy, intuitive eating, joyful movement, sleep hygiene and other lifestyle interventions to ensure clients feel their best.
One of my most memorable client experiences was the time I had a client that came to see me for weight management. She felt uncomfortable and embarrassed in sharing her food choices and weight history. We began to work towards making small changes in behaviours and over a short period of time, she felt proud and regained her self-confidence. Not only did she achieve her weight loss goals but claims healthy eating to be an ongoing journey seamlessly meshed in her lifestyle.
