My love of creating healthy food and seeing the positive effects of
proper nutrition on my own health – particularly in managing my
social anxiety and ADHD symptoms, balancing my thyroid, improving my
body composition, eliminating migraines, and regulating my sex
hormones – were the driving forces leading me to study and continue
learning nutrition, and help others who might be struggling like I
have along the way.
I graduated from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, first
with my RHN in 2011 (tying for Highest Overall Standing in my
graduating class!), and then my Advanced RHN in 2012. I’m also a
member of the Canadian Association of Natural Nutritional Clinical
Currently I specialize in plant-based and clinical nutrition to
support all aspects of sexual health, as well as fitness and
athletics, cognitive function, and body image. I have a creative eye
for detail when addressing my clients’ lifestyles and health
concerns, as well as for menu design and recipe development (my
flexitarian husband and “sous-chef” often provides helpful feedback
and many yummy-noises on that last one). I’ve enjoyed the benefits
of yoga, cardio kickboxing, and a conscientious plant-based
lifestyle since 1999.
In my spare time I read science fiction and fantasy novels, snuggle
with my cat, curate my ever-expanding tea collection, teach piano
lessons, and commit random and bizarre biological factoids to
"I have always
had issues getting the proper nutrition until I started
working with Sara Galipeau. She has provided a variety
of creative recipes that work around my picky eating.
Her knowledge and guidance has been extremely beneficial
and I always come out of her sessions feeling confident
and ready to try something new."
