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

My goal is to help you achieve balanced, whole body wellness through optimal nutrition. I believe that healthy eating doesn't need to be complicated and hope to inspire you to enjoy whole, natural, and nutrient rich foods.

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, hormone free fish, poultry and meat.

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, digestive ability, stress, hormonal balance and more. 

During a nutrition consult we 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 your specific needs whether your goals are weight loss, increasing energy, overcoming common digestive imbalances or just looking to eat a healthier, more balanced diet. 

As a Certified Personal Trainer I’ve learned that 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 can help you achieve your fitness goals through a tailored exercise plan and easy lifestyle modifications along with optimal nutrition strategies to fuel an active body.
