What is your favourite Nova Scotia food?
My favourite Maritime or Nova Scotia food is a good Lobster Roll! I can’t think of anything better to enjoy outside in the sunshine (preferably after a day at the beach) on a Nova Scotia summer day.
What is one tip you could share with future/current dietitians?
Try not to take yourself too seriously. When I first became a dietitian, I felt that I needed to present a very serious, very professional persona in the media and on my various online platforms. I’ve since realized that my community resonates to my messaging and relates to me much better when I’m relaxed, laid back, and let my true humorous self shine through!
