I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist living in Abbotsford, BC. I have a 6 year old daughter who is my inspiration and motivation to educate people (especially new parents) about the impact nutrition has on physical and mental health.
After completing my B.Sc. in Integrated Sciences at UBC, I veered off into another direction and began working with children with autism. I found it intriguing that many of the kids I worked with were diagnosed with food allergies and sensitivities. When I became pregnant with my own child I began researching the effects of nutrition and environmental chemicals on a growing baby. The more I learned, the more interested I became. When I discovered that my daughter suffered from food sensitivities I became even more motivated to learn as much as I could about holistic nutrition. I am thankful to have caught my daughter’s food intolerances before they led to more severe health issues, but oh how I wish someone had educated me on gut health and nutrition before she was born. It could have saved us both a lot of grief! I hope to spare others from the same experience.
I decided to pursue a diploma in Natural Nutrition from CSNN and become an R.H.N. so that I could help not only my own family but also others. I now work with clients one-on-one as well as provide educational seminars for groups.
