Who is

I created Behind the Plate because of my passion for nutrition counselling and body image coaching. Early in my work as a dietitian I realized that I had a passion for nutrition counselling which is what lead me to starting my private practice. Creating Behind the Plate has allowed me to help more individuals than ever before. I take a collaborative, judgement-free, non-diet approach to nutrition. I work in partnership with my clients to help them achieve their health goals.

I'm on a mission to change the way individuals view their bodies, health and dieting.

I was 9 the first time I looked at my body negatively and wanted to shrink it. By 16, I tried to "cut out carbs" in an effort to change my body. At 20, I was obsessively counting calories and tracking my weight. Luckily, I never developed an eating disorder, but I now recognize how disordered some of my behaviours were. By my mid-twenties everything had changed. Through fitness, self-love and obtaining a degree in science, my body image shifted. This is when I discovered Intuitive Eating, Health At Every Size, the Body Positivity Movement and Feminism. These helped me re-write the narrative in my head which freed up space for more important things like becoming a Registered Dietitian and starting a private practice. I vowed when I became a Registered Dietitian to help other individuals achieve freedom from diet culture, unrealistic beauty standards and harmful diet misinformation through providing accurate, realistic and fad-free Medical Nutrition Therapy.
