: the process of eating the right kind of food so you can grow properly & be healthy

I founded Wholistic Health YYC after completing undergraduate, master’s & post-graduate certifications in nutrition-psychology & mindful eating. As a competitive athlete, business owner & mom with 2 toddlers, I respect you want to make the best food choices but struggle to digest the plethora of material out there on “healthy eating”, “nutrition”, fad diets, & such. I’m here to educate you on the benefits of maintaining a diet rich in whole foods — benefits that extend to body & mind.

I’ve been around the globe doing market tours & cooking classes — from New York to Madrid to Paris to Istanbul to Florence to Rome to Copenhagen & beyond! But some of my very fave foods & markets are right here in my own backyard. Calgary has a great selection of both farmer’s markets & grocery stores. You can find a whole variety of whole foods to nourish your mind & body.

Social media bombards society with the countless celebrity endorsed diets (tricks to shed those last 10lbs before summer… sound familiar?), images of the ‘perfect’ body, & food fads that tells you to eliminate certain foods because of their perceived harmfulness or incorporating foods because of their ‘newly discovered’ health benefits. But just how sustainable are these trends? Not to mention the cost associated with them. Even though there’s endless information at our fingertips, its a tricky job sifting through it all & try to make sense of it (that’s what I’m here for).

I strive to collaborate with clients over nutrition & other nutrition professionals to create a sustainable relationship with food, from the WHY to the HOW to the WHAT you choose to fuel your body & mind.
