​I am a Registered Dietitian and self proclaimed foodie. Having grown up in Vancouver, I had a love for food from a very early age. This naturally progressed into pursuing a career as a Dietitian.

I graduated with a BSc. in Food, Nutrition and Health from the University of British Columbia and am a member of the College of DIetitians of British Columbia. I completed my dietitian internship at St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver, BC and have since enjoyed working as a Dietitian in Fort St. John, BC where I work with clients from all areas and walks of life. 

I am a member of the T'exelcemc First Nation and believe food is such an exciting part of our lives, representing not only our cultures and traditions but a vital resource for achieving optimal health and well-being. Whether you are looking for nutrition management of a chronic disease or are simply wanting to eat better for overall health, energy and disease prevention, I look  forward to working with you. 

About Me

Dietitians have a university degree and at least 1250 hours of supervised, hands-on training. Many have additional degrees or certificates. They must pass a registration exam to become a regulated professional. 

The title ‘dietitian’ is protected by law, just like physician, nurse or pharmacist. ‘Nutritionist’ is not a protected title– that means anyone can use it.**

​Look for the letters RD (registered dietitian) or PDt (professional dietitian) after your health care professional’s name. Not sure? Ask about their education and if they are a provincially regulated health professional.
