- Medical Affairs Manager – Aging Care, Nestle Health Science Canada
I completed my undergraduate degree in Applied Human Nutrition from the U of Guelph and my dietetic internship at the Grand River Hospital in Kitchener, ON. I worked as a Registered Dietitian at the Hamilton Health Sciences for 8 years after which I joined the Nestle Health Science (NHSc) team as a territory manager.
After 9 years and 3 kids, I joined the Medical Affairs team where I am now responsible for linking the science related to nutrition and aging to the programs and products that NHSc offers. I am currently in my second year of a part time Master’s degree in Health Research Methodology at McMaster. My goal is to help fill the gaps in the research related to nutrition and aging.
“Nutrition plays an integral role in maintaining functional independence in older adults. My goal is to help further understand, and increase the awareness of this important relationship.”
