About Emily - Gut Health Nutritionist

Hi! I'm Emily.


I'm a Certified Nutritionist (RHN) with the National Association of Nutrition Professionals and I specialize in Gastrointestinal and Digestive Health (aka, Gut Health). 

My journey with Holistic Nutrition started in 2010 when I developed IBS-C, along with a host of other symptoms to accompany my diagnosis, like food sensitivities, PMS, acne, hair loss, anxiety and fatigue.


I was bloated almost daily and I couldn’t seem to get a handle on it no matter how healthy I ate. I missed out on events, I avoided tight clothing and I was constantly riddled with "food fear". I was even hospitalized at one point because my stomach pain was so bad that I thought my appendix had burst…

After multiple visits to my family Doctor, I was finally diagnosed with IBS. But all I was given was Metamucil and laxatives to manage my symptoms (sound familiar?).

My intuition told me that there had to be more I could do, so I personally started researching and experimenting with herbs, supplements, lifestyle practices and dietary changes. I couldn’t believe the improvements I saw in my symptoms and I knew I had to learn more. 

This led me to the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN), where I enrolled to study as a Holistic Nutritionist. Since graduating, I have continued my education to specialize in Gastrointestinal health, and it is now my passion and mission in life to help people just like me overcome their chronic digestive issues.
