I’m Adrienne and I am born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia.
I love food! I love making it, talking about it, reading about it and of course, eating it! My passion for food led me to complete a Bachelor of Science in Food Science and Nutrition double major from the University of British Columbia. I worked as a food scientist at leading food companies in British Columbia. I developed and ensured foods created met high quality standards. However, I found myself more interested in the interaction of food and health and decided to complete a Masters of Science in Nutrition from McGill University in Montreal and become a registered dietitian. I completed my clinical dietetics internship at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal and the BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver.
I am a registered dietitian with the College of Dietitian of British Columbia and a member of Dietitians of Canada.
As a dietitian, I have worked in a variety of roles including hospital clinical dietitian, food service management, provincial food policy with the BC Ministry of Health and currently as a clinical dietitian at HealthLink BC. I have also taught cooking workshops to McGill students and at a community centre in Vancouver.
I have extensive experience providing nutrition counseling for clients from all walks of life. This includes first time mothers who want to know what to feed their baby, adults who want nutrition recommendations for their newly diagnosed disease and individuals who want to have a healthy diet plan or want to lose those extra pounds.
I believe that all foods can fit in a balanced diet
I take pride in providing a client-centered, practical and supportive approach in my practice.
I have a strong passion to continued education in my field. I have completed courses in motivational interviewing for health professionals from UBC and am working towards my coaching certification.
