Janelle is a Registered Dietitian (RD) and holds a Diploma in Dietetic Education and Practical Training (DDEPT) from Brescia University College in London, Ontario. As a dietitian her goal is to help others live a healthy, wholesome and active lifestyle.
Food has always played a significant role in her life, as she grew up on a farm, was a young recreational athlete, and had a mother who encouraged healthy eating. However, it was in her teenage years as she began to learn the critical role nutrition played in healthy living throughout the lifecycle, that her interest in preventative health was truly sparked. Her fascination in the relationship between nutrition and disease management/prevention, led her to pursue a career in nutrition and dietetics.
“Entering the field of nutrition and dietetics, I always knew I wanted to help people optimize their health through the powerful role of nutrition.”
She continued to enhance her knowledge and love for nutritional sciences at Brescia University College. Enrolling in additional courses related to exercise nutrition, wellness and healthy ageing. As she completed a variety of dietetic placements, she soon realized that her greatest passion was in providing individualized nutrition care.
Janelle’s core philosophy is that everyone deserves to feel healthy, energetic, and free from the confusion surrounding food choices every day. Her counselling style focuses on helping individuals create a positive and lasting relationship with food and themselves through a nutritious, whole foods approach. Her favourite part is involving clients in developing creative, simple and realistic solutions to overcome unique health challenges. She trusts and believes that healthy living can be fun, personalized and achievable. Especially with the right amount of support, guidance and accountability along the way.
“I accept that health is defined differently by everyone, and that there is no one size fits all approach to healthy living. I believe that anyone, at any stage of life, can benefit from learning to become more intentional in their eating and healthy habits. I am committed to helping clients achieve impactful results for a healthier and happier future”.
