I started by completing a BSc. Food, Nutrition and Health in 2012, followed by a BSc. Dietetics, at the University of British Columbia in 2016. Since becoming a registered dietitian in 2016, I have worked as a clinical dietitian and food service coordinator with Island Health. I recently started my own private practice Jenn Abele, RD where I provide in-person nutrition counselling services between Campbell River and Comox Valley communities, as well as online counselling.
I grew up in Northern Saskatchewan, but consider BC my home since moving out to the West Coast in 2009.
In the past I have facilitated community kitchens and volunteered at farmers markets, which is something I am interested getting more involved in Campbell River.
I enjoy doing yoga, walking the sea walk, cycling, and checking out new hikes.
I am fortunate to be able to attend clinical webinars and workshops through Island Health to maintain my clinical competence. I also engage in online courses and in person workshops to continue my developing my knowledge as a dietitian.
