Parents have the responsibility to feed and nurture a child for 18 years and if we have more educational supports available to educate families on feeding maybe the rate of chronic disease will eventually decrease because we have treated it on the front end.  Registered Dietitians need to be leaders in teaching all families how to feed and nuture their children for a healthy future. It would be great if everyone were entitled to see a dietitian yearly (kind of like for a nutrition check-up) to see what is going well and what could be improved.  The way the current system works patients are referred to dietitians when there is a problem and it would be nice to have a more proactive approach.

Explaining what a registered dietitian does can be difficult.  My goal is to be a blessing in the lives of the people I serve.  There are both ordinary and extraordinary challenges that people face with nutrition.  Finding a way to use my knowledge and skills to be a blessing and help create joy or alleviate suffering is my primary aim.

My career path has been a bit unusual. While I was in college and graduate school studying nutrition, I worked as a personal trainer in corporate gyms. Once I graduated and became an RD, I left the fitness industry and started working as a clinical nutritionist at a large NYC hospital; however, my heart wasn’t in clinical and I missed the fitness/wellness industry. I then started working in the wellness industry for a couple of years and finally left to start my own nutrition private practice and consulting business. I am able to combine my love for nutrition and fitness and share it with my clients. My other passion is teaching so I started as an adjunct lecturer at a local college. I teach 1-2 classes a semester and it’s a nice compliment to having my own business.

I want dietitians to continue to be the go-to “gurus” when it comes to nutrition! I want people to understand our scope of practice and have greater financial access to dietitians in private practice. In Alberta, a certain number of private sessions are covered to see a physiotherapist but not a dietitian. We need to change that.
