About Me I'm a registered dietitian living in Campbell River, BC, on beautiful Vancouver Island. My husband and I moved to Vancouver Island in 2015, for me to complete the 5th year of my dietetics program (the practicum), we knew we wanted to stay and we now call Campbell River home. When we're not working, you will most likely find us traveling, hiking, camping, or renovating our home. We also share our home with two cats and a dog!
My route to becoming a dietitian was not direct, at all, it spanned almost nine years, three universities and two countries. I started by completing a Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition and Health in 2012, after a year of working, I returned to complete a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics, at the University of British Columbia in 2016. Over the years, I've worked in many different health care settings: food services, residential care, hospitals, and in the community. Today, I work with private clients, as a Baby's Best Chance resource nutritionist, as well as with seniors in residential care and the community.
