Heather has always been passionate about what she eats. As a child, she was a picky eater and as a teen, she struggled to find the balance between food and body image. After years of under eating, over exercising and always feeling mentally overwhelmed, she was able to identify the important connection between the mind and the body. This holistic realization led her to complete her BA in Psychology at the University of Windsor.
After years in the corporate world, Heather was driven to feed her passion for nutrition and earned the R.H.N. designation from CSNN in 2010. The experience and the education have been life-changing. Heather continues to work in Program Management, is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist™ professional and a teacher at CSNN in London, ON, teaching Fundamentals of Nutrition, Pediatric Nutrition, and Preventative Nutrition. She loves watching the transformation in the lives of her students.
Now, a mother of two little girls, having the knowledge to raise them with optimal nutrition choices and a healthy body image is the greatest benefit. Her husband has been her nutritional “guinea pig” for years; suffering from IBS throughout life and is now symptom-free. The health changes in herself, her clients and her husband are a true testament to the power of food.
Heather loves to be with her family, go for a good run (mental therapy) and experiment to create new, healthy recipes. She is passionate about continuously educating people so that they can live their best life.
