Jennifer Neale is a Registered Dietitian in Ottawa, Ontario. She has a Masters Degree from McGill University and is a member of both the College of Dietitians of Ontario and Dietitians of Canada. Jennifer became a Dietitian in 2012 and has been working in various sectors within the world of dietetics ever since. This has included working in community health and diabetes education, private practice, insurance, workplace wellness, and software development.
In 2017 Jennifer became a mom to a wonderful little girl. This really changed the way in which she practices Dietetics. After suffering from her own eating issues in University, she did not want her daughter to grow up in an environment that prioritized body size above all else. As a result, Jennifer has been doing a lot of learning and unlearning with respect to health and weight and has adopted a Health at Every Size® approach in her practice. Jennifer considers herself to be a non-diet, weight-inclusive Dietitian, here to help clients achieve their health goals regardless of their body shape and size.
Prior to having her daughter, Jennifer worked in the corporate sector for 5 years and understands how hard it can be to balance full-time work, healthy eating, and activity. This is why, as the owner and operator of Nutrition IQ, she now focuses her energy not only on meeting with clients one-on-one but also on bringing Health at Every Size® to the workplace. She believes that this message is incredibly important, especially in the workplace where we see bodies of all different shapes and sizes and where your personal appearance has no bearing on how someone is as an employee.
