I have a passion for food and cooking and trying new recipes. This led me to completion of my B.Sc. degree in food science and nutrition from UBC. I worked in food product development making delicious and healthy foods for retail sale. Later, I decided to go back to school to complete my MSc. in Human Nutrition combined with a dietetic internship to become a Registered Dietitian.

At HealthLink BC I work on provincial food policy issues.
