About Me

I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut with a Master of Science in Human Nutrition. I stay on top of current nutritional science in an ever-changing environment to ensure my advice is based upon the latest and strongest evidence in the field. I regularly attend Nutrition and Health Conferences and am a member of the American Nutrition Association and the Canadian Nutrition Society.

I enjoy working one on one with clients, children and adults, as well as speaking to groups on specific health topics. Some examples include presenting before the Parents’ Advisory Council at Charles Dickens Elementary School on the topic of Healthy Lunches. I had a fabulous time speaking to a group of dynamic women on the topic of, “Women’s Health and French Women Don’t Get Fat..?”.

I presented live on CityTV’s Breakfast Television this spring. I did a short segment called “Swap Out” where I discussed healthy alternatives to some of our “go to” favourite meals. Click on the link below to watch:

My own love for nutrition stems first from a love of wholesome, natural food. I love shopping at the local farmers’ market, cooking the afternoon away and creating healthy recipes for my clients and family.
