My Story

 

I was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. I moved to Montreal in 1998 to attend McGill University. In 2002, I received a Bachelor of Science in biology with a minor in business. I stayed at McGill to pursue my passion for nutrition and received a Bachelor of Nutritional Science in 2006.

I began my career as a dietitian working at the Ottawa Hospital in 2006. After a year of working in geriatrics and nephrology, I started working at the Regional Centre for the Treatment of Eating Disorders. I helped develop and implement the out-patient program there as well as being the main dietitian for the symptom interruption hospitalization program. 

In 2014, I moved to Toronto and started working at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). I continued working with clients struggling with eating disorders, as well as helping clients struggling with anxiety, depression and addictions.

In 2016, I moved to the private sector and worked at the Waterstone Clinic, a treatment centre for eating disorders. 

I love working in the mental health field, especially disordered eating, so I decided to open up my own private practice to continue serving this community.

When I'm not working, I love spending time with my bird Kiwi, as well as my family and friends.
