Melissa led several nutritional workshops for my U15 Ottawa Jr. 67’s AAA hockey team. The information was well organized and presented in a clear manner so that 14/15-year-olds were able to process and implement into their respective routines. As the season progressed, we clearly witnessed players incorporating what they learned into their eating habits. Thanks so much, Melissa, for your time, effort, and patience.
