- About Joanna -
We live in a world bombarded with nutrition information. It’s coming at us from all directions, from different sources, and with different focuses. How is anyone supposed to know what to eat?
I was born and raised in BC, first completing a degree in psychology and biology before going on to a degree in dietetics. After internship, I worked in acute care, residential care, and outpatient settings. However, most of my career has been spent at HealthLink BC, in two different roles: first, answering people’s phone calls on food and nutrition, then transitioning into resource development, where we sift through the science and aim to create written nutrition resources that are clear, meaningful and achievable.
I believe that food and eating are important parts of our lives. As such, they can bring great joy, but they can also bring stress, guilt, and confusion. My goal is to write blog posts that provide you with the information you need to inspire you toward meeting your own healthy eating goals. I hope you enjoy them.
