work with me

As a dietitian, I translate complex scientific evidence into bite size pieces to offer simple but practical solutions to promote health and manage special health conditions. I love working with individuals and groups to improve their eating habits and to address all their different nutritional needs. As a certified wellness coach, helping clients reach their best selves through meeting their fitness, nutrition and mental health goals is the most rewarding experience. I work with clients with all kinds of goals but my expertise is in plant-based eating, celiac disease and gut health.

Incredible nutritional, medical and emotional support! Finding Jess has been so significant for me, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 2 months ago. I was scared, confused from conflicting medical advice and overwhelmed. I am so grateful to have found Jess early on in this journey. She immediately became my main source of trusted information in regards to my health. She has been an invaluable resource for me to gain an understanding of what was happening and what my body needed, also such an emotionally positive person, so caring and fun to chat with. I always enjoy our conversations and completely trust her experience, advice and information. She explains things that are only specifically relevant and in a way I really understand. I will be a long term client for sure, anyone who has her as their dietitian is extremely fortunate!!!

I have had Jess present workshops at two Community Centres on a variety of topics. The workshops have included Exotic Fruits and Vegetables; Food Fact or Food Fiction and Power Packed Cooking among others. Jess is a knowledgeable, engaging and inspiring presenter. She makes eating healthy fun, delicious and adventurous. I had one participant say that Jess has changed her way of thinking about food which in turn has changed her life! I know that every time I sit in on a workshop, I go home and try a variety of new foods and new recipes. Thanks Jess!

I started working with Jess Pirnak earlier this year after I discovered I was having some digestion problems. She was so helpful and informative on the diagnosis and establish a path forward. Jess really ‘knows her stuff’. Everything she has suggested works and has made my daily well-being better.

Jess has a kind and empathetic approach which makes it easy to open up and talk honestly. She has gone out of her way to stay in touch with how Im doing and answer any questions I may have outside of our consultation times. I wont hesitate to recommend Jess to anyone I know who could benefit from her help.

Thanks so much Jess

Jess has been an amazing resource and support for my teenage daughter as she has transitioned to becoming vegan. Jess provided sound advice to me and inspired my daughter to maintain healthy choices. I would highly recommend her to families with teenagers.
