My name is Jen and I am a Nutritionist from Ontario, Canada. I completed my education at the University of Guelph with a double major in Nutrition and Neutraceutical Sciences and Zoology. I work as a both a nutritionist and nutrition writer for a number of avenues. I have been a vegetarian for as long as I can remember and a vegan for the past year. I am particularly interested in topics related to plant-based diets as well as implications of westernized diets.
Aside from nutrition I am an avid rock climber and fitness enthusiast. I am currently on an extended, post-graduation, climbing trip, so far just around North America. I have climbed all over Ontario and in the Red River Gorge in Kentucky, where I have lived for about a half a year so far with plans to potentially stay until November. Where to next? I have no agenda really and am most definitely open to suggestions! As it stands, I’m just staying put until I finally get sick of Kentucky (or the heat more likely :p).
So with that back ground info, my website is a resource for all things nutrition related. Using current research, I break it down to make it reader friendly for more people than just scientists. I am a firm believer in the power of education and the need to make scientific research more accessible to everyone. Interested in some one on one time? I also give nutrition consults! Check out my nutrition consult page for more information.
