Let's work together!




I'm available for freelance writing, copywriting, recipe development, menu planning, speaking engagements, cooking classes and nutritional consulting for individuals, groups or businesses. 



Freelance and Copywriting

I'm an experienced writer with excellent research skills and a strong ability to understand and interpret scientific studies and put them into accessible, easy-to-digest (pun intended) language. Along with training in nutrition, I have a Bachelor of Arts degree, a certificate in Sustainability from the University of Illinois Chicago-Urbana and a deep understanding of the food system-climate change connection. My writing has been featured on CBC Life, Nova Scotia Food, IndiMum and more.
