Brand & Media Partnerships 

I partner with brands as an expert with influence through spokesperson work, consulting, content creation, and other types of media work.

Hello, I’m Melissa, your nutrition coach

I’m a Certified Holistic Nutritionist in the Ottawa area. A lifelong athlete, I specialize in sports nutrition and mainly work with teen and adolescent hockey players in my virtual private practice.

My mission is to help the next generation of hockey players optimize their diets and health so they can perform their best on and off the ice and avoid the mistakes I made growing up that cut my playing career short.

With a prioritization of performance over aesthetics, my coaching programs are designed to help teen athletes achieve their personal best in the most sustainable and health-supporting way possible. 

I’m also a freelance writer and partner with brands as a consultant and spokesperson. In fact, before becoming a nutritionist, I earned diplomas in broadcast journalism and sports journalism. I have completed and written dozens of media interviews and freelance articles for media outlets and ghostwritten hundreds of articles and pieces of content for brands and other health professionals. 

I was recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Health Experts by OptiMYz Magazine four years in a row.

Who I Work With as a Hockey Nutrition Coach

My performance-based nutrition coaching programs and workshops are designed for teen and adolescent hockey players and teams in development programs who are looking to reach their highest potential. 

  • U15-U18 A, AA, and AAA hockey players and teams
  • U22-Elite female hockey players and teams
  • AHL and NHL, PWHL
  • Educational support for coaches and parents 
  • Obstacle course race athletes
  • 15-18 year-old athletes who want to compete at their highest potential

My nutrition programs are NOT for athletes who: 

  • Are looking for restrictive diet plans, strict calorie counting, or macro tracking 
  • Are only interested in a one-time nutrition appointment 
  • Are only looking to achieve weight loss or body composition goals 
  • Are in an active or recently diagnosed eating disorder 
  • Have a medical condition that requires medical nutrition therapy
