nutrition & coaching
Jess came to coaching after several years of wearing the expert hat with clients and noted the power of strength-based questions. In her current dietetic practice, Jess integrates coaching frameworks with nutrition counselling to support her clients to first try to find the answers for themselves. Jess is passionate about education, prevention and creating a healthy community. She is an advocate for the power of food and its connection to health. With an extensive background as a retail dietitian, Jess understands the natural food sector and the importance of a sustainable food system. Currently, she is the in-house dietitian advisor for the Canadian Celiac Association - Vancouver Chapter and is the program developer behind the app: MyHealthyGut.
In her spare time Jess loves to write about nutrition specifically about plant-based eating and gut health on her blog. And if she's not talking about food, nutrition or health, you will find Jess playing outside.
