Shannon graduated with honours from UBC’s Food Nutrition and Health program and completed her dietetic internship with Vancouver Coastal Health in 2012. She is registered with the BC College of Dietitians and is a member of Dietitians of Canada. Shannon began her career as a dietitian in the natural grocery setting where she gained a deep understanding of food — from farms to processing, packaging, and labelling. From the grocery setting to medical clinics, she loves translating the science of nutrition to real-world food and cooking. Shannon is delighted to join the InspireHealth team where she looks forward to sharing her passion for balanced nutrition. She is especially excited to lead cooking classes that highlight the joy of exploring fresh, simple ingredients.
