Interesting Facts About Me

I can speak German (not fluent yet, but we all have to start somewhere!) 
My favourite place to dance is with my dog in my living room.
Peanut butter and plain greek yogurt are one of my favourite food combinations. 

I’m Carla, a Registered Dietitian with the CDBC. I completed my BSc. from the University of British Columbia in 2019 and have been working with clients since then through a mix of outpatient clinics within Fraser Health Authority and through private practice. I follow a holistic approach, and am passionate about exploring all factors when creating your goals. Along with my holistic approach, I regularly explore new research on various nutrition concerns, as I know the research is constantly changing and want to ensure I have up to date research to support your goals.

I have years of experiencing working with individuals on complex concerns such as blood sugar management, heart health and hormone balance. Sometimes, I see clients for preventative measures, as I truly believe in the importance of making healthy steps today and love exploring ways we can fit small, simple changes into your everyday life that will have big effects on your future. Most of the time, it’s small simple changes that we incorporate into our everyday life that can have the longest lasting effects.

I’m also very passionate about working with people on their relationships with food, and how their mental and emotional health can sometimes influence their food choices. I’ve also had experience working with eating disorders, sports nutrition and calculating macronutrients, meal planning and cooking with families and even nutrition in pregnancy.

Finally, through my years of experience with Fraser Health, I also have a vast knowledge working with individuals living with pre diabetes, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes.

When I’m not diving through new nutrition research, you can find me, my boyfriend and our dog exploring the beauty of BC – the mountains, the oceans and the back countries. I also have a recent love for pottery classes. Just like with food, variety in life is great!
