Cathy Richards, BSc, RD

Registered Dietitian

Cathy Richards is a mom of 3 young kids and a Registered Dietitian with over 19 years of varied experience. Her evidence based practice has involved working with various government departments, including Corrections Canada, The Department of National Defence and 2 different Canadian Universities. She has had a successful private nutrition consulting practice since 2002.

Cathy loves working with her clients by getting them the energy to show up as the best version of themselves and even have some left-over to do the things that bring them joy! Her previous certifications in diabetes education and project management have enabled her to develop group programs that incorporate this knowledge and easily fit into her clients busy lifestyles with simple to implement strategies.

A key component of Cathy’s approach is meeting her clients where they are at – health wise and life circumstances – considering the entire person – not just their food intake. Working with clients to get them healthier and ultimately wealthier.

*Dietitian services are often 100% covered by private health insurance.
