Sarah received her Bachelor of Human Ecology with a major in Foods and Nutrition from the University of Manitoba in 1988 and obtained her Registered Dietitian designation in 1989. Sarah has been in private practice for over 25 years helping people reach their individual nutrition goals.
Her previous work experience includes Clinical Dietitian at the Saul and Claribel Simkin Centre (previously know as the Sharon Home), Ambulatory and Urgent Care Dietitian at the Misericordia Health Centre, Symposium Coordinator, Diabetes Research and Treatment Centre, and nutrition class instructor at the City of Winnipeg Parks and Recreation and Rady Jewish Community Centre. As well, Sarah works at a medical clinic in Winnipeg. She is an active member of the Dietitians of Canada and the College of Dietitians of Manitoba.
Sarah’s focus is on nutrition counselling individual children and adults, including seniors, related to therapeutic diets (e.g. high blood pressure, cholesterol and gastrointestinal disorders), weight management, healthy eating, prenatal nutrition, sports nutrition, eating disorders and group counselling.
Sarah understands many of the frustrations and hurdles one has to overcome in making lifestyle changes to reach these goals. As a mother to three active boys and wife, she appreciates how finding a healthy balance can be difficult. She is dedicated to her profession and loves helping people find that healthy balance and giving them practical and effective tools they can use to make healthy food choices for the rest of their lives.
Her coaching style is very client-focused, working hard to develop a trusting relationship with her clients where she works together, as a team, to meet nutrition objectives. Sarah takes great satisfaction that most of her clients feel a personal connection to her approach and she has a long history of client success stories.
Sarah has a passion for her profession. Her goal is to carefully listen to her clients and work closely with them to find a healthy and balanced way of living that fits their specific needs and individual circumstances. She believes that nothing is written in stone. If one approach doesn’t work, she and her clients will find one that does . . . together.
Sarah is thrilled to join the Corydon Physiotherapy Clinic Team and help her clients lead healthier lives.
