Never let other people tell you what you will be good at. One time Jorie was told she would never make a great sports dietitian and today she is one of the best that I know.

Jorie is Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) and has been ISAK Level 1 Certified. Jorie has participated in Molly Kellogg’s Counselling Intensive Course for Dietitians and is a Certified Life/Executive Coach.

She was past president of the Sport Medicine and Science Council of Manitoba, co-chair of the Dietitians of Canada Sport Nutrition Network, and founder and chair of the Manitoba Sport Nutrition Network Inc.
