After spending a number of years as a public law lawyer in London, England, I was ready to change from a career I liked, to one I loved. One inter-continental move and a Masters degree later, I am thrilled to be working as a nutritionist, health educator and advocate.
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 a member of the Canadian Nutrition Society and American Nutrition Association.
I enjoy working one on one with clients, from families with young children, teenagers and adults all looking to achieve specific health goals. I regularly present to schools, businesses, and women’s groups on a variety of health topics. Some recent examples include a presentation to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation Chairman’s Circle on the topic of “Flummoxed About Food? Cutting Through the Confusion To Achieve Optimal Health”.
I am an avid health advocate and work collaboratively with teachers, school administrators and sporting leagues to develop healthy policies that create positive change for our youth. I am proud to have helped a preschool become a “sugar-free zone”.
I have always been active from competitive running, triathlons and currently as a member of a women’s cycling race team. I have undertaken further training in sports nutrition and enjoy nothing more than helping my athlete clients optimize their nutrition in order to improve performance.
I am a brand ambassador for health related products and regularly present as a guest on morning television programs including CTV Morning Live, Breakfast Television and Global News Morning Show. I have contributed to various publications including BC Living, Impact Magazine, Huffington Post Canada among others.
