I have been a Dietitian for 25 years working in Hospitals, Community, Home Care, Long Term Care and Diabetes Education. I also live with food hypersensitivities. In my 20s I fell into the food avoidance & sensitivity trap. I thought, “If only I could figure out which foods were causing me problems, then I’d feel better”. I am excited to be a coach with Wendy’s program because many of her strategies are things that helped me on my own journey to living well with food hypersensitivities.
I recently competed my Master’s degree in Adult Education. My award-winning thesis: When the path falls away: Learning to live well with food hypersensitivities, documented people’s stories and provided them with a platform to voice their thoughts on how to improve care for this population. Being able to do this research allowed me to check something off my bucket list: contribute to our collective understanding of food hypersensitivity and improve the quality of life for so many people that are suffering.
I look forward to working with you as you go through the FAST Freedom program; to support you as you navigate your own path to wellbeing.
