My love for food and the environment comes from growing up in an Ontario beach town. I spent most of my childhood swimming in the lake or exploring through the massive park by my home. The day finished sitting around the table enjoying my Mom’s home cooked meals. Weekend mornings were pancakes and weekend afternoons were neighbourhood snowball fights. While homemade meals were the staple, I was lucky to have parents who let me enjoy the deliciousness known as processed food (Kraft Dinner with hot dogs, anyone?). It is really no surprise I ended up with a love of food and the outdoors
I am a proud registered dietitian. In my clinical career, I work as an oncology & palliative care dietitian. I love my patients and appreciate everything they have taught me in becoming a better dietitian & person. This fall I will be returning to school to complete my Master of Public Health at the University of Toronto.
As for the witch part, I’ve always loved them. Witches in history were often intelligent & influential women sticking it to some oppressor. I also admire their association with the natural world. Food itself is powerful in the way it nourishes both our body and soul and I like to think this influence is a little bit of witchcraft.
