I'm Whitney, food lover, nutrition nerd, owner of Whitty Nutrition, and a Registered Dietitian. This 'ABOUT' section is intended to let you know a little bit about me and give you some information on WHITTY NUTRITION.
ABOUT WHITTY NUTRITION
I created WHITTY NUTRITION after realizing that the need for Dietitians in the province of Manitoba was growing faster than the job market was expanding. I worked hard as a nutrition student to learn all that I could and I was itching to share my knowledge with others. I believe in the value that good nutrition can have on one's quality of life and I feel that everyone can benefit from having some nutrition knowledge! I am passionate about providing nutrition education to those interested in learning how to take control over their life through nutritious eating and healthy living. By developing a private practice and the WHITTY NUTRITION blog, I have been able to do just that!
I have a Bachelor of Human Nutritional Science from the University of Manitoba, have completed a Dietetic Internship Program, and written the Canadian Dietetic Registration Exam to obtain my licence to practice as a Registered Dietitian. I offer one-on-one personalized nutrition coaching for those looking for individualized nutrition education. In addition, I offer a wide variety of group education sessions, workplace wellness programs, and have a youtube channel where I post cooking videos, recipes, and fun facts about food.

Thanks for reading this far, I have a tendency to ramble so I'm glad your still here! Anyone who knows me knows that I like to talk ... a LOT. Maybe that's why I decided to start my own business? I've always had an interest in nutrition and find it to be the perfect career choice since everyone can contribute something to a conversation about food. After all, everyone has to eat! That's one thing about me, I definitely love food and love to eat. You'll learn more about what types of food I enjoy by visiting the recipe section of the blog.
Other things about me? I've been married just over 3 years to my best friend and biggest cheerleader Bryson. He's always encouraging me to do things I never thought I would be able to do . . . like camping in the middle of the African Savannah or starting my own business! There's few moments without laughter in our life and for that I am thankful.
I grew up on a farm in a rural community in Manitoba and have a deep appreciation for agriculture and the farmers of this country. I never knew I was so spoiled growing up with our own milk, meat, and eggs until I started studying nutrition. I feel lucky to have been exposed to a side of nutrition that not everyone gets to learn about first hand.
Despite growing up on a farm however, and much to my dad's dismay, I now live near Winnipeg, Manitoba and work in the 'big city' as my family refers to it.
I have one awesome big sister, amazing friends and family who support me in everything I do (some of which you will see featured in the Feedback Friday section) and of course, life wouldn't be complete without my best pal Louie. Overall, blessed, is perhaps the best word to describe me.
Thanks again for visiting, please leave a comment or suggestion for a future topic. I love hearing from you!
