I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist living in beautiful British Columbia. I have a little girl 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 in nutrition and health. When I discovered that my daughter suffered from food sensitivities I became even more determined to learn as much as I could about holistic nutrition in order to help her. 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 earlier. It could have saved us both a lot of grief! I hope to spare others from the same experience as well as help those who are already struggling.
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 others as well. I now work with clients one-on-one in addition to providing educational seminars for groups.
As a gluten-free vegetarian myself I specialize in plant-based nutrition for both adults and children with a focus on food allergies. However, I also work with omnivores and create wellness plans catered to my clients’ individual preferences, regardless of whether they include meat or not!
Success! You're on the list.
