Key accomplishments/background: 

I grew up in a small town in British Columbia and always had a passion for nutrition, well-being, and working with people. Thismotivated me to pursue a degree in Human Nutritional Sciences at the University of Manitoba. While completing my degree I worked for various Winnipeg based initiatives that provide nutrition programming for children, such as Kids in the Kitchen and CanU, I also completed a spring semester abroad to further expand my nutrition knowledge. I completed an Accredited Dietetic Internship in Manitoba in 2020 and have since been working as a clinical dietitian with various populations in the city, as well as working on a Performance Nutrition Team with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Professional Division.

Quote as to why the staff member got involved with Pro Prep:

“Nutrition has such a role in performance, recovery, and the overall well-being of athletes. Jorie Janzen is a phenomenal Sports Dietitian, and the opportunity to work alongside her as part of the Pro Prep Academy Performance Nutrition Team tohelp build the capacity of athletes to understand the value that good nutrition brings to their sport is so exciting!”

Quote as to what excited the staff member about working with Pro Prep:

“Beyond just myself working with athletes and their nutritiongoals, I am excited to see how the entire Pro Prep Academy team will come together to help athletes achieve their goals.”
