My CHEO Story

I am a mother to three young children in the Ottawa area who is grateful to have CHEO available and accessible should we need it.

Why I'm involved

After having my third child I decided to leave my career in education and pursue an education in holistic nutrition. I believe that food can be the gateway to health when making proper, informed choices. I also believe there are many ‘food-like’ choices out there that are not contributing to health, but instead contributing to disease and disorders. I also have a keen interest in the gut-brain connection and how good and the right bacteria positively influence health.
