As a teenager I was always lean. I didn't have to worry about what I ate, I just stayed lean. But after the birth of my first child, that all changed!! I wasn't used to the extra weight on my body and I did not like it. I tried some of the mainstream diets popular at the time and lost weight but once the meal plans stopped, the weight came back. The frustration from the regain was immense and that's what lead me to the Diet Doc. I became a client in 2012 and I learned how to eat, through education, motivation, support and best of all REAL FOOD!! That was the year my life changed forever. I was given the tools I needed to keep the weight off and live a nutritionally rich life!
Since then I've had two more children, become a bodybuilding athlete, and have competed in fitness challenges. But I have been on the same "diet" through it all! I chose to become a Diet Doc Clinician so that I too could help people attain freedom from food, look better, feel better and finally love the skin they're in!
Before becoming a Diet Doc Clinician, I have been interested in human health. In 2004 I completed my training as a certified dental assistant through VIU. In 2010 I completed my training as a lifeguard through the lifesaving society. In 2014 I completed NDAEB EXAM. In 2015 I successfully completed more training in the dental field through the Okanagan College and earned my prosthodontic designation as a CDA. This allows me to make provisional crowns and bridges to aid in mastication, speech and improved oral health.
Having a strong understanding of oral health and the mouth being a main gateway into the body, in 2016 I completed the Canfit Pro Healthy Eating and Weightloss Coach Program, and I knew immediately I was hungry to learn more!
So I am became a licensed Diet Doc Program Owner with a sublicense as a Team K Competition Prep Coach under the guidance of the man who started it all, Dr. Joe Klemczewski aka The God Father of Peaking.
In 2019 I completed the Tier 1 National Academy Of Metabolic Science Nutrition Consultant Training as well as The Tier 2 Physique Sport and Transformation Coach Training. This is to ensure that I continue my education and stay current with the latest developments in the world of nutrition, health and fitness to help my clients absolutely crush their physique goals!
