About me

My Journey
My interest in nutrition started in my teens and by my early twenties it became a passion that made me read several books. Deciding to become a registered dietitian came very naturally.
 
I enrolled in the nutrition program at the University of Montreal in 2000.  I graduated in 2004 and I have been providing nutrition counselling since then.  I am currently studying at the IFM (Institute of Functional Medicine) towards a functional nutrition certification. It's a field that fascinates me and shapes my current practice towards an integrative and holistic approach. ​
 
Every week, I publish a grocery list to help you with meal planning. I am collaborating with two fantastic local brands: Panier du fermier and Beurre et Baguette to offer you nutritious options on the Nourished Journey Functional Grocery List. These two brands offer quality products that are both delicious and always fresh,
 
I work virtually as well as in person at the ProSanté Center in the West Island of Montreal. I live in Piedmont with my husband Vittorio and we have two beautiful daughters named Mila and Celeste. We also have a parrot named Tito who talks a lot :)
 
We love living in the Laurentians because we are so close to nature. Our favorite activities are camping, wakesurfing and alpine skiing. 
In the spring of 2019, I was fighting an invasive streptococcal A blood infection that originated from a mastitis. This led to a septic shock and multiple organ failure. Luckily I was spared from many complications that often arise from sepsis. Since then, I've shared my story as awareness is key. I am currently a Patient Advisor and Steering Committee member of the Action on Sepsis Research Cluster of the University of British Columbia. I am also a Patient Partner with Sepsis Canada.
