Hi I’m Jill, your Cancer Nutrition Coach

It’s Not Just Recovery, It’s a New Beginning

After the treatment rooms, all the medical appointments, and the strain of living with your cancer diagnosis, you’re overwhelmed, confused, and just really tired. 


You’re told to eat healthy, but you don’t want to cook a meal, let alone look at a recipe. You’re confused about what you can and can’t eat. Can I have beer, a glass of wine? Will that make the tumor come back? Will it make it grow? Will it upset the chemo?

 

Life feels full and empty at the same time. 

 

Suddenly all the aspirations and dreams, that project, that trip, are not going to happen. Things feel out of reach.

Many people think cancer is an ending but the truth is it’s really a beginning.

I've watched too many friends and colleagues get the diagnosis and then battle everything (medical appointments, hair loss, communication with family, work and raising children) rather than having the time and space to do the inner work of strengthening, rest and self-nourishment. 

 

You’re at a fork in your path. You can either fall into hopelessness... or you can embrace your new beginning.

 

There are foods and supplements that combat fatigue, nausea, and brain fog so you can live with a sense of ease and dignity, engage in life, feel well again, and better manage pain so you can do the things you love.

 

Your diagnosis can be an opportunity to peel everything away, reevaluate, and get to the core of who you are, what you value, and what you want to do next.

I’m here to help you take an active role in your recovery.

You’re expected to be strong for your family, put a brave face on, have it all together, and understand the diagnosis and the steps.

 

What you need is someone outside your family unit and medical community who can look at your life objectively with compassion and sensitivity and help you forge a path.

I’m Jill, Cancer Nutrition Coach, helping cancer survivors feel physically stronger, nutritionally nourished, and emotionally supported as they leave treatment and enter back into the real world.

Your medical team of nurses, oncologists, and your family doctor targets the disease. I help strengthen your immune system so your body and mind can feel healthy and well again. I help you tune into your body’s own signals so that it can foster health and feel strong again.

 

I have a degree in Applied Human Nutrition, 20 years in my field, and am a Certified Cancer Coach and Registered Holistic Nutritional Consultant. I combine these to bring both the science and holistic aspects of nutrition to my work as well as a strong dose of spiritual intuition. 

 

I’ll be your ally to cope with a cancer diagnosis, rebuild your immune system, and increase your chances of survival using anti-cancer foods, lifestyle, and natural immune-enhancing approaches.

When I was 21, I was the caretaker for a woman who was diagnosed with terminal cancer - I cleaned the house, took her daughter to daycare, did the little things. At a time when most of my friends were going to bars and being care-free, I was talking to her about her treatment side-effects and her chemo, and listened intently to all that she was experiencing including balancing family life. I remember thinking I wanted to create a spa where people could rest, recover after their treatments, and then come home to their lives.

20 years later, my dad got the diagnosis. Cancer. When I got the call, I was travelling abroad with my husband, in the midst of a journey letting my nervous system unwire, recovering from adrenal fatigue and rejuvenating my body and emotional health after neglecting it from the pressures of my corporate job for so many years. I returned home and became my dad’s cancer coach, caregiver and advocate, the spoke in the wheel of everything. It was 3 months of go, go, go. But also of learning to trust my intuition.

I’m here to soften your landing and hold the space for you to be yourself, to grieve, to celebrate, and to live the life you have right now with humour, joy, and a lighter heart.
