Join my adventures of tasting, learning and having fun with food, nutrition, healthy living and just plain life. I’m a nutri-foodie at heart with a zest for life ready to diary my journey (when time permits).
I have a B.Sc. (Hon) in Nutritional & Nutraceutical Sciences with a specialization in Biomedical Sciences (pre-med)as well as all my dietetic courses. I also am one of the lucky ones in Ontario to be a registered Professional Home Economist (P.H.Ec.) – think all things to do with Home & “Family” life (traditional and not-so-traditional!).
A Niagara native, my life path has been a winding road and allowed me the opportunities to work for Agriculture & AgriFood Canada , OMAFRA, Agricorp, and currently ‘NSTEP – a national nutrition education charity.
I’ve helped to run and fund student snack programs, competed in a pseudo-Dragon’s Den (article in the London Free Press) and presented to several groups on nutrition and health. I was a speaker for the Ontario Snack Program Conference as well as a Metro Green Apple Grant recipient for a program I designed. I am a huge supporter of healthy fundraisers and incentives – just ask me all my ideas.
So come along with me on a honest and humorous glimpse into my “walk the talk” life to get inspired and informed on food, while having fun and laughs!
