The thought of food and the act of eating can be both scary, confusing, and even sometimes contradictory. My goal as your Registered Dietitian is to empower you with current, evidence-based solutions so you gain a sense of confidence making food choices for diabetes.
Learning about the science of food is my favourite pastime, and coming in at a close second is talking about it. Combining these passions is what landed me here today.
In 2008, I earned a Bachelor of Journalism from Ryerson University and worked as a freelance writer. But after two years in the field I felt like something was missing, and the idea of helping people navigate the confusing world of healthy eating brought a new level of passion to my career choice. I decided to go back to school to pursue a career in healthcare with a focus on my interest of food.
In 2014, I graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Nutrition and Food from Ryerson University, before completing a one-year internship at North York General Hospital in Toronto. During my internship, I acquired clinical training in cardiology, neurology, diabetes, adult eating disorders, general medicine, and gastroenterology.
I am now working in my dream profession where I can help others live their best and healthiest lives.
Currently, I work full-time as a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator at a Toronto-based endocrinology clinic, specializing in diabetes and weight management, and on evenings and weekends I run my private practice.
