Performance Dietitian

“After seeing how fine tuning my diet improved my performance as a collegiate hockey athlete, I was inspired to become a dietitian so that I could help other people feel the way I did - strong, confident, energized and happy. I now wake up every day with one goal in mind: helping others achieve the healthiest and happiest versions of themselves."

Healthy eating doesn’t have to be complicated. The key is to find a balance between founds that nourish the body and foods that nourish the soul . Aim to consume mostly whole foods, in appropriate amounts, and treat yourself once in a while. People often ask me “What’s the best diet?” The best diet is the one you can stick to long term, so choose sustainability over quick fixes.
