Kate Girard is a Registered Dietitian with a Masters degree in Health Science (MHS) and extensive training and experience with maternal and child health, lactation, pediatric nutrition, and generally working with food and/or nutrition insecure individuals. Her motivation to become a dietitian, however, was due to a significant family history with heart and metabolic disease so she has a real passion for prevention of chronic disease using nutrition and lifestyle modifications with people of all ages in her current practice.
Approach to care
Kate is highly motivated to understand your "why" and how it fits within the context of your life and family history. Getting to know one another, building trust, and providing space for open communication is key to determining what steps are both sustainable and will help you reach your goals.
