About Jess

Jess is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist™ and Family Health Educator, specializing in brain health & resilience for kids.

Her path shifted when she took a sabbatical from her high school teaching career to study nutrition. In 2007 she graduated top of her class as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist™ from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and since then has worked alongside Naturopathic, Chiropractic and Medical Doctors, Family Counsellors, Occupational Therapists, teachers and parents to help kids calm down, learn better, have better sleep, have better poops, enjoy more stable moods and get over their picky eating.

Jess has been featured as a nutrition expert on a number of online summits and documentaries she has been a nutrition expert for the Transformative Parenting on-line courses and the Kids Cook Real Food Community, and is a regular contributor to various blogs and print magazines.

In 2019 Jess was honoured with the Award For Clinical Excellence by The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition Alumni Association for her work with families.

As a parent and advocate for children’s health Jess is working to bring an understanding of the power of good nutrition into the mainstream conversation about children’s mental health and learning. Her book, Raising Resilience: Take the stress out of feeding your family and love your life, her virtual community The Raising Resilience Community, and her online resources have helped families all over the world  fit the food and feeding piece into their health puzzles and guide them towards safe, natural and effective tools to improve the lives of their children with learning differences, anxiety, ADHD, autism and mood disorders.

Jess is board certified in practical holistic nutrition by the Canadian Association of Holistic Nutrition Professionals (CAHN-pro) where she serves on the board of directors working to advance the  holistic nutrition profession, and she is an associate member of the International Society for Nutritional Psychiatry Research and is a Certified GAPS practitioner.
