City & country of residence

My work
I currently work as a Diabetes Consultant for Aboriginal communities in Nova Scotia.

My current sports nutrition practice
The Sport Nutrition work I do is generally private consults and limited at the moment.

My goals in sports nutrition
I would like to either work for a sports organization or create a sustainable private practice and provide athletes with practical sports nutrition advice.

My own sporting background
As an athlete, the majority of my sporting background stems from high school (basketball, track and field, soccer). As a coach, I worked a lot with local high schools in basketball and track and field. I also had the honor of coaching two provincial teams for the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) in 2006 (basketball) and 2008 (track and field). I was also lucky enough to participate as an athlete for the 2008 games!

My favourite sporting moment or heroes
I'm a fan of track and field. My favorite athlete at the moment is Trey Hardee, former world champion decathlete, Olympic silver medalist. I enjoy watching multi-sport events. :)

My favourite foods
I love food! It's hard to narrow it down to a short list. I may have to come back to this one.

Other things of interest about me
My goal, in regards to this course, is to use the diploma towards a Master's degree. This will hopefully allow me the opportunity to convert the theoretical coursework into practical application.
