What do you look forward to each day in your job?
I enjoy connecting with people every day, whether that’s in person, by phone or online. It’s very rewarding to support clients as they make changes to improve their health. I especially enjoy creating delicious and nutritious recipes and menus for clients. It’s so inspiring to have access to the wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables grown here in Nova Scotia.
How do you keep up to date with current science and evidence-based nutrition?
I have a subscription to the Dietitians of Canada PEN system -- the online tool that provides current evidence-based guidance on food and nutrition topics. Every year I participate in a variety of educational opportunities offered by Dietitians of Canada. I am a member of five Dietitians of Canada networks, including the Diabetes, Obesity & Cardiovascular Network. I am also a member of the Canadian Obesity Network and Exercise is Medicine Canada. Membership in these organizations provides me with many opportunities for interaction and learning on topics of interest in food and nutrition.
What is your next big goal or project?
I’m excited about expanding the features available on my website. Stay tuned!
What are your go-to, healthy snacks?
I like to create a delicious parfait for a mid-afternoon snack. I’ll usually include fresh fruit and berries, or perhaps some homemade fruit compote, as well as plain Greek yogurt or chia pudding.
What one food is always in your kitchen pantry?
One staple food in my kitchen is oats. I currently have rolled oats, oat bran and steel cut oats on the panty shelf. Oats are so versatile. I like oatmeal and I make a variety of my own flavour mixes that include nutritious additions such as flaxseed and oat bran. When I’m developing recipes for baked goods and desserts I often include oats as a main ingredient.
What talent would you most like to have?
I’ve always loved the flute and decided to purchase a concert flute and take music lessons while I was studying nutrition at Acadia. I recently purchased a beautiful wooden Celtic flute handcrafted by Windward Flutes in Shelburne, Nova Scotia. My next challenge is to learn the new techniques required to play this beautiful instrument.
