I remember reading nutrition labels at the age of 10, healthy eating being an early interest of mine. In college, my business major wasn’t quite fitting for me, and once I learned Dietetics and Nutrition was a field of study, I wasted no time in making the change. Becoming a dietitian was an action of the quote, “Do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.”

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.

My career path has been a very long one! I was one of the first to start a private practice in Canada over 40 years ago. There were three of us that started at the same time. I started doing regular media gigs including TV and radio just a few years after I started in private practice. I had regular spots on national TV shows back in the 80s and had my first book,The Enlightened Eater, published back in 1987. I started a weekly newspaper column with the same name in the Ottawa Citizen in 1991 (which I had nightmares about writing!). It was syndicated across Canada for a number of years. I also had a weekly TV column on CBC Morning for a number of years. The National Post also carried my Enlightened Eater column for a number of years as well. I’ve had regular magazine columns.

I would like to see more diversity in the field; men and women of different ethnicities, sizes, abilities, religions, sexual orientations and classes. Past Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics President Dr. Evelyn Crayton published a paper about the lack of diversity in dietetics in the 2015 issue of the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and also presented this evidence at the 4th International Critical Dietetics Conference in Chicago. I would like to see a more inclusive and diverse profession.
