Early on in Jane’s career as an RD, she was exposed to various positions in hospitals, community and primary care, and research.

Throughout the eight years in primary care, Jane continues working alongside many patients and clients struggling with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) using the low FODMAP diet, and other dietary and lifestyle strategies to help improve their symptoms and quality of life. She recognizes the inter-connectedness between gastrointestinal and mental health, and empathizes with many who struggle with the challenges of living with IBS, and is pursuing further knowledge in trauma-informed dietetics care. Jane takes a compassionate and holistic approach in nutrition that focuses on caring for the body, and building a nourishing relationship with food.
