I’m a new-mom (when do you stop being a ‘new-mom’?) who is attempting to raise a healthy and independent eater. I’ve discovered the challenges of picky eating and the joys of a glass of wine, all at the same time. I believe that nutrition and eating should be fun. My goal is to help simplify the feeding process and to present nutrition information in a real and easy way to understand.
I’m a Registered Dietitian, mom to toddler Peter, wife to David, and potential future-runner (it’s important to have a goal). I’ve completed my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition at Acadia University and then went on to earn a Master of Science in Applied Human Nutrition at Mount Saint Vincent University.
Prior to focusing on pediatric and family nutrition, I practiced in the areas of chronic disease prevention and healthy weight loss. I’m a member of the College of Dietitians of Alberta and a certified Craving Change expert (almost!) who uses motivational and problem-solving techniques to help clients reach their nutrition goals.
In my spare time (aka ‘in my dreams’) I enjoy reading and rock climbing, but mainly spending time with my family.
