Currently Doing in the Field of Holistic Nutrition
I have recently been elected as board of director for the IONC.  In that role I aim to support the elevation of this profession and all its practitioners.  My career has taken me back to school, first to study mental health and addictions, and then towards a degree in public health and community services.  I have been shifting my focus from practicing as a clinician, to working upstream with social policy, and populations on the whole. I also maintain a consulting practice in my home town of Nelson BC.
