I am a Registered Dietitian in Prince George working in private practice. I have over 15 years of experience in the Dietetics Profession. This experience includes international development, eating disorders, geriatrics, cancer care, obesity, prenatal, mental health, and community nutrition. My four core areas of expertise are obesity, eating disorders, sports nutrition, and working with chronic dieters.  Building positive eating skills and a trusting relationship with food is my foundation for all types of counselling. Personally I have also struggled with chronic pain in the knee, shoulder, and elbow.  Through pilates, yoga, and physiotherapy routines I am finding strength, balance, and alignment again.  I am also a homeschool mom by day and beginner home cheesemaker by night!
