Hello and welcome!

I’m Kat, a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Certified Personal Trainer in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

I believe that healthy eating doesn't need to be complicated and hope to inspire everyone to enjoy whole, natural, and nutrient rich foods.

I’m a graduate of the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. Natural nutrition is founded on the principles of food that is natural, live and good quality. Natural, as in unprocessed, unrefined foods, such as whole grains and legumes. Alive, containing live enzymes, such as fruit, vegetables, and sprouts. Good quality, meaning grown in soil rich in essential nutrients such as organically grown foods and sustainably raised fish, poultry and meat.

Prior to becoming a holistic nutritionist, I studied fitness and health promotion at Algonquin College and became a Certified Personal Trainer from the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology. Exercise is crucial to the human body and has the ability to increase life span, elevate mood, increase energy and maintain strong muscles and bones for life. I’m passionate about living an active lifestyle and encourage my clients to as well!

My goal is to help my clients achieve balanced, whole body wellness through optimal nutrition and active living to feel their best now and in the future.

Each person is biochemically unique and has different optimal nutritional needs. These needs change over time and throughout stages of life. We are what we eat but more so what we absorb, and what we absorb is a product of gut health and digestive ability, stress levels, hormonal balance and more. 

During a nutrition consult, I look for nutritional imbalances in the diet as well as contributing factors from lifestyle, stress levels, emotional and environmental influences. Each coaching plan is then individually created to suit client specific needs whether your goals are weight loss, increasing energy, overcoming common digestive imbalances or just looking to eat a healthier, more balanced diet.  In addition to nutritional coaching, I also provide tailored exercise plans to clients looking to get more active.
