Hi! I’m Devon. I help individuals and families reach their health goals without restriction, diets, or complicated programs.
With combined education, work experience, and insight though my own personal health journey, I am committed to the highest quality of service and care.
I’m a mom, a wife, and a caregiver at heart. I have a wildly dark sense of humour, but also love a good pun. I’m recovered from a 20-year battle with anorexia and bulimia, which has led to my passion in helping others find balance and acceptance in their relationship with food and their bodies. I love animals, anything outdoors, and singing.
I live with Bipolar Type II, and have found a fabulous balance through holistic wellness and conventional medicine to keep me functioning at my best.
I decided to become a health and wellness coach through my own eating disorder recovery. Creating my own coaching business seemed like the perfect way to marry all of my education and passions in life. I graduated with a BA in psychology from Thompson Rivers University in 2013. From there I held a variety of jobs, including teaching in a preschool, working as a behaviour interventionist with children on the Autism spectrum, and coaching young children’s gymnastics. While I LOVE teaching, none of these jobs seemed quite right for me.
Throughout my eating disorder recovery, I developed a true love for food. I love to cook and play with textures and colours, and I love to share food with friends and family through special occasions, chats over coffee, and restaurant exploration. I wanted to be able to harness this love of food while still paying attention to my health. It’s been an amazing journey to allow myself to accept, and even love, my body while still enjoying anything I want. I decided to dive back into my studies, and completed my certification in health and nutrition coaching (CHNC designation) through the Nutraphoria School of Holistic nutrition; one of the only internationally recognized programs available.
