CURRENT RESEARCH AND TEACHING INTERESTS:

  • Arts-based approaches to dietetic education and nutrition education, particularly the use of narrative
  • Professional socialization of dietetic students and new practitioners
  • Development and learning needs of nutrition educators
  • External influences on consumer food behaviours
  • Maternal, infant, and child health; family feeding relationships/dynamics

My background as both nutrition educator and a dietetic preceptor has developed my interest in helping students gain insight into the nature of nutrition counselling and education, as well as the complexities of the client-practitioner relationship. Experiences with chronic disease management and consumer education as well as work with families, media, industry, and community-based organizations, have also helped shape my teaching and research interests.
