Welcome! I am Jennifer and I live in beautiful Victoria, BC. Canada. I am a RD with 20 years of clinical experience. I have worked as a renal dietitian for 15 years and prior to that in diabetes, cardiology, gerontology and neurology. I loved working as a dietitian but as I continued professional development journey, I felt I could do more in how I was delivering nutrition therapy. The body is made up of organ systems and like we now know the is a connection between the brain and gut, there are connections between all the systems. I no longer wanted to just look at the kidneys and the kidney diet but the entire person and their systems. I wanted to be able to provide interconnected nutrition therapy with a trained functional lens. This when I pursued my integrative and functional nutrition practitioner certification. I am thrilled to join this sector of dietetic practice and I know this way is just going to explode in the upcoming years as people are demanding this type of care.
