Jamie will greet you with a warm and approachable smile that has a way of putting you at ease. You can count on her to be adaptive and collaborative in coming up with right-fit solutions that meet your health, mental health and family needs.
Jamie was born and raised in Calgary and destined to be a Dietitian given the food loving family she grew up in. She was inspired to pursue a career in nutrition by her mother, who previously worked as a Dietitian. Furthermore her Chinese grandma taught at a culinary school so Jamie learned from the best about the fusion of tasty western food with traditional Chinese food. Jamie was drawn to the idea of combining her passion for both food and science into a career, which led her to move to beautiful Vancouver, BC to complete a Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition and Health at the University of British Columbia. Jamie then moved to Vancouver Island to complete her dietetic practicum, where she was able to explore a variety of practice areas in both clinical and public health settings.
Upon completing her degree, Jamie returned home to Calgary and obtained a casual Dietitian position at the Alberta Children’s Hospital and quickly grew passionate about working with families, infants and children of all age groups. During her time, Jamie has had the opportunity to provide staff relief in a variety of clinical settings, including Cardiology, Cystic Fibrosis, Oxygen and Neonatal clinics. Jamie has also spent time working at the Pediatric Centre for Weight and Health collaborating with a team of health professionals to promote healthy lifestyle habits for children and their families.
Jamie was introduced to the realm of nutrition and mental health when she began training to provide staff relief at the Calgary Eating Disorder Program. She gained experience providing both inpatient and outpatient care for adult and pediatric patients living with eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and unspecified eating or feeding disorder. Jamie’s pediatric and eating disorder experience eventually landed her further experience as a Pediatric Mental Health Dietitian at Alberta Children’s Hospital where she provides care for adolescents living with various mental health conditions including ADHD, autism, schizophrenia, somatic symptom disorder and eating disorders.
Outside of her clinical role, Jamie provides nutrition education sessions for clients living with arthritis at the Joint Effort program at the University of Calgary. She has also co-instructed an advanced nutrition course for fourth year students in the Faculty of Kinesiology for three semesters. Jamie values her role as a nutrition educator and helping clients and students translate the complex science of nutrition in ways that are meaningful and practical.
Jamie is a regulated member of the College of Dietitians of Alberta, the Saskatchewan Dietitians Association and Dietitians of Canada. She is a Certified Craving ChangeTM Facilitator specializing in strategies for problematic and emotional eating. When not working, you can find her outside enjoying the sunshine or catching up on the latest episode of The Bachelor or Bachelorette. Jamie also loves to explore Calgary’s growing food scene and has been nicknamed the noodle queen as she is always on the hunt for the best bowl of noodles, ramen, pho, chow mein or pasta!
