Sports Dietitian-Nutritionist

My practice is a reflection of who I am: authentic, sympathetic, and practical.

Formerly an economist, I converted to a Sports Nutritionist-Dietitian. I am also very involved in the sport of swimming as a coach.

I obtained a master's degree in nutritional science from McGill University (Quebec, Canada) in December 2020. My research topic was on RED-S and the eating habits of a group of adolescent swimmers. This project combined my passions for nutrition and swimming. Some sub-themes integrated into my project included the periodization of nutritional strategies throughout a training macrocycle and the nutritional needs of adolescent athletes.

I mainly work with teenage and young adult athletes who perform in different sports. I also run several conferences for different groups; athletes, university students or corporate groups. In March 2021, I presented the results of my Masters project to the Swimming Coaches Association of Canada (CASA) in English and French. I have taught nutrition students primarily on RED-S to undergraduate nutrition students at McGill University (QC, Canada) and the University of Ottawa (ON, Canada). I also supervise undergraduate nutrition interns who would like to work as sports dietitians. I am regularly involved in various research projects, including work on supplemented foods and eating disorders.

Before studying nutrition, I completed a master's degree in economics at Laval University (Quebec, Canada). I then worked as an economist at the Department of Finance (Finance Canada) for four years. These experiences have given me a solid statistical knowledge and excellent critical thinking skills when analyzing data. I always love the workout stats that my clients share!

Sport is an integral part of my life, both as an athlete and as a coach. I have worked as a competitive swimming coach for over 20 years. I was a swimmer during my childhood and teenage years where I specialized in backstroke events. Every year I still compete in various endurance events such as running, open water swimming, long distance triathlons and cross country skiing.

Thanks for reading, looking forward to working with you!
