ABOUT ME

I am a registered dietitian with the Order of Dietitians of Quebec (OPDQ) and am passionate about making the dietitian's voice heard. As an avid runner, I understand and appreciate the complex interplay between diet and physical activity and how hard it can be to change and then maintain a lifestyle behavior.

Born and raised in the Nation's Capital (Ottawa!) I moved to Montreal to pursue studies at McGill University- and never left. From 2018 to present, I am the R. Howard Webster Scientist in Nutrition and Lifestyle at the PERFORM Centre, a state-of-the art institute at Concordia University (Loyola Campus). In January 2020, I will be the University of British Columbia's Director of Dietetics, Assistant Professor.
