Chelsey is a private practice Registered Dietitian. She completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Food & Nutrition at the University of Prince Edward Island and her dietetic internship program in Edmonton. She’s been helping clients reach their health goals since 2010.
Chelsey believes food is one of life’s pleasures that is meant to be enjoyed, not feared. Her mission is to help clients find their happy place with food and their bodies. To help them feel fantastic - without restriction, gimmicks, or yo-yo dieting. She loves debunking food myths and simplifying nutrition information so that her clients feel empowered to make healthy habit changes that are enjoyed long term.
Chelsey’s career has focused on one-to-one counseling, specializing in weight concerns, heart health, and food relationship. She has a strong interest in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, fueled by her father’s sudden passing from a heart attack in 2013. This made Chelsey even more passionate about helping her clients lower their risk.
When outside of dietitian-land, Chelsey is found playing with her toddler, hitting an exercise class, getting some fresh air, or relaxing at home with her husband and a cold beer.
