I am passionate about helping people understand what healthy eating is all about and adopting it for life! I have been practicing as a Dietitian since 1999, teaching and coaching thousands of people on how to lead a healthier lifestyle and clean up their eating plan to achieve their goals.
I was born and raised in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Human Nutrition from St. Francis Xavier University in 1998 and proceeded to complete a dietetic internship program at Vancouver General Hospital in British Columbia. I am a member of Dietitians of Canada and the Nova Scotia Dietetics Association.
I have been informing and educating viewers of CTV Morning Live (formally Breakfast Television) on nutrition since 2001. Every second Wednesday, on my Just Ask Laurie segment, I will cover the hot nutrition topics of the day, or offer a simple but healthy recipe.
I am super passionate about helping people understand the science of food and making it work for them. I love coming up with healthy and tasty meals for my family and sharing them with you!
