In 1993, I achieved certification as a BCRPA certified fitness trainer and worked for three years at the Fitness Group in one of the most health-trend-setting neighbourhoods in Vancouver, Canada.
I went on to Whole Foods as a buyer, and then an assistant team leader. While pursuing my formal education, I worked as a consultant and broker in the natural food and vitamin industry. In 2013, after two years of study at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Vancouver, I graduated as a Registered Orthomolecular Holistic Nutritionist and am currently serving clients across North American and the UK.
I continuously update my skills and keep aware of the latest research. I am fortunate to have a highly respected and trusted professional team that I closely network with to compliment any issue that may reach beyond my scope, such as: advanced fitness training, massage, acupuncture, naturopathy, physiotherapy and hypnotherapy.
My most recent and exciting adventure has brought me to sports – I am currently working with Olympic athletes, helping them to achieve their peak performance. In 2015, I worked with the Canadian Men’s Field Hockey team as their nutritionist and wellness coach, accompanying them to Buenos Aires, where they competed in the World League Round 3, qualifying for the 2016 Summer Olympics. In January 2016, I toured Cape Town, South Africa, as a holistic nutrition chef and educator with the team.
In subsequent years, I have continued to be part of the travelling support team as the nutritionist and chef with the Canadian National Men’s team and have helped educate the Junior team and other athletic organizations such as beach volleyball at RYU and The Polar Bears Academy summer camps at UBC; as well, I toured with the progressive athletic training, Rob Short Coaching Academy. The buzz is out, athletes all over the globe are recognizing the value in having a holistic nutritionist as an integral part of the team.
My life is simple and rewarding. I’m active, walk my dog on the beach daily, eat well, spend time with wonderful friends and family, and have been known to enjoy the occasional glass of fine wine! Everything in Balance!
