Rachel Dickens is a Registered Dietitian, Certified Diabetes Educator and founder of Pacific North Nutrition.
Rachel is a member of Dietitians of Canada and is registered with the College of Dietitians of British Columbia. She graduated with a Master’s Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Griffith University in QLD, Australia, and after graduating worked in private practice, diabetes management, and Aboriginal health. Her love for the Pacific Northwest Coast of BC brought her back to Canada to settle in Victoria where she started working in Renal Nutrition for Island Health. Rachel soon moved on to her current position at the Diabetes Education Centre where she works on a part-time basis.
Rachel has over 6 years experience working as a Dietitian and loves sharing her knowledge on healthy eating and cooking. She is passionate about the healing powers of food, as well as empowering individuals to reach their health-related goals. She specialises in weight-loss, vegan and vegetarian diets as well as chronic conditions including diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), celiac disease, and heart health.
At Pacific North Nutrition we know you care about the planet too. That’s why we created The Conscious Dietitian, our affiliated site with information on food sustainability, ethical eating, nutrition-related questions and trending topics, and seasonal recipes.
