Adults, Seniors, and Healthy individuals interested in disease prevention.
Fridays and Saturdays
Water and Mountains give me peace of mind.
I stayed in India for one month to persuade yoga training, and it opened a new world for me!
I enjoy playing piano on rainy days in my cozy corner.
I can eat hotpot (in a healthier way) everyday – If you are curious what a dietitian eats. : )
Mandarin is my first language.
Hello, my name is Jessica Lee, and I am a Registered Dietitian. I was a registered dietitian in Taiwan for 10 years and moved to Vancouver in 2015. When I was in Taiwan, I worked with ICU, Kidney, and Diabetes patients. In 2019, I became fully registration with College of Dietitians of British Columbia. Before joining Fraser Health in 2021, I provided nutrition service in long term care. I am familiar with chronic disease and meal planning from solid practice at hospital; I learned quality of life is priority for seniors, and those days at long term care emphasized my skills on Dysphagia and Food allergies & Intolerance.
Being an immigrant had transformed me. COVID is another key guiding me to start this journey of self-wellness. I started to practice yoga, meditation, and have strong interest on psychology and holistic therapy. This was the first breakthrough for me to seek greater self-awareness of self.
As a dietitian, I always provide science-based references. However, I started to feel dissatisfaction being a dietitian who only provide nutrition knowledge. Behaviour changes required time and dedication! I want to tailor all my recommendations based on clients’ need, motivate them, and make them feel confident to make peace with food.
Thus, I spent more time on intuitive and mindful eating training with Motivational Interviewing skills. In addition, I want to dig deeper on MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction) and MBCT (mindfulness based cognitive therapy) this year. They might not be directly related to nutrition therapies, but I believe this training can be beneficial to my clients and provide a unique type of my consulting.
Athletes’ nutrition has always been my passion. I enjoy yoga, Pilates, swimming, free diving, paddle boarding, hiking, and bouldering. I really want to work with athletes and support them to get better performance.
At Aster Wellness Centre, I focus on tailoring individualized nutrition plans for each unique patient. We make plans together, and you are empowered to control what you want to eat.
