IOC Dip. Sports Nutr., BSc (Nutr.), R.D.

Sports Dietitian - Owner of NMC Nutrition Inc.

Speaker, Consultant, Individualized Coach

I have attained the world-renowned International Olympic Committee (IOC) Diploma in Sports Nutrition. I also have a bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Sciences from the Université de Moncton and am a certified ISAK level 1 anthropometrist.


Early in my career I worked in Chile, South America, where I fell in love with the cultural aspect of food. I then gave regular sessions to newcomers through MAGMA to help them continue cultural food traditions locally. A 2-year project with the francophone communities of Newfoundland and Labrador, enabled me to discover and address the wellness needs of these communities, while respecting their language and customs.I have since acquired sports nutrition contracts that allow me to help preserve culture through nutritional guidance that respects traditions. I combine my love for anthropology/sociology with my love for sport by taking the time to learn the culture of each team.


I have spent almost 15 years providing education, training and hands-on support to recreational, competitive, Olympic and professional athletes/teams throughout North America and Europe. I am referred hockey players from the NHL, AHL, CHL by their agencies, particularly Roy Sports Group & 02K Sports Management. My contracts have included/include The Performance Lab, theToronto Maple Leafs, UNB Men's Hockey Team & Track Team, Saint John Sea DogsUPEI Men & Women's Basketball Teams, Mount Allison University Swim Team, Crandall University Sports Teams, National Blind Hockey Team, Cycling Canada & Para-Cycling Canada’s national teams, Moncton Major U18 AAA Flyers, U18 provincial Female Tackle Football Team, FIFA, and Football Canada, Football NB, Basketball NB, Division 1 baseball & CHAOS Dance Academy among various other sports at provincial, national and international levels.

Aside from sport, I am also a performance nutritionist for various members of the RCMP, firefighting units, paramedics, and have worked with members of the military. I was previously a consultant with the Université de Moncton kinesiology research team in the areas of shift work and performance. Recently, I have been addressing "Nutrition For Optimization Of Cognitive Performance In The Workplace."

I enjoy speaking engagements and am now a yearly guest lecturer at my alma mater, where I also participated in developing a sports nutrition course offered in the departments of kinesiology and nutrition. I have lectured for many provincial and national associations including the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) the New-Brunswick Association of Dietitians, Sport Physiotherapy Canada, and Consortium national de formation en santé

I am a currently a member of the National High Performance Sport Nutrition Peer Professional Development Group, 
the New Brunswick Association of Dietitians & the College of Dietitians of Ontario. I am also a consultant for the Canadian Sport Center Atlantic, Coach New-Brunswick, and Aboriginal Sport & Recreation New Brunswick. I am honored to have been named Sports Dietitian with Team NB, for the North American Indigenous Games. I have been a consultant provincially in the area of nutrition for concussion recovery and for the New-Brunswick Pain Institute. I am currently on the supervisory committee of a research study on concussion recovery out of Université de Moncton.


I was awarded Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce top 20 under 40 (2022), Unsung Hero Award (2021) from Crandall University Athletics Department, Nutritionist of the year (2020) from Community Votes Moncton, alumni of the year (2017) by École Sainte-Anne & alumni of the year (2015) by the Université de Moncton Faculty of Health Sciences. I was also featured by Amplify: East as one of the Remarkable Women of Atlantic Canada.

As for my personal life, I enjoy quality time with my family, traveling, music, yoga, and savoring new foods!
