About Ashley Turner
Hi! I’m Ashley!
I have a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Human Nutritional Sciences from the University of Manitoba, and completed my internship through the Moncton Hospital Graduate Dietetic Internship Program. I am registered with the College of Dietitians of Alberta and the Saskatchewan Dietitians Association and can see patients across Canada, except in Ontario, PEI, and Quebec. I work with babies, children, teens, and adults!
I help people make meaningful and sustainable changes towards their health goals, with a plan that fits. In my experience, individuals think working with a dietitian means stress around big changes, an overhaul of their food choices, or a super restrictive diet… that’s not me! I want to hear your story, support you with every step along the way, and remove the uncertainty around food and nutrition. Then we can build on what is working and troubleshoot what isn’t. I want you to feel confident to reach your own personalized nutrition and health goals.
The same goes for my pediatric patients, I understand that food and nutrition can have even more pressure and concern for you as a caregiver. My approach is to not only provide nutrition care but compassion to the individuals I am working with, helping you to feel confident to reach your little one's nutrition and health needs.
For Pediatrics, I specialize in:
- Constipation & Encopresis
- Digestive Disorders like IBS, IBD, EoE, GERD / Reflux
- Cow's Milk Protein Allergy & Milk Soy Protein Intolerance (MSPI)
- Feeding families
- Fuelling kids & teens for sport
- Transition to solids
- Picky eating
For Adults, I specialize in:
- IBS & other functional digestive disorders
- Digestive disorders like Microscopic Colitis, IBD, Diverticulitis, Bile Acid Diarrhea, Gastroparesis, SIBO, EoE
- Constipation & Diarrhea
- GERD / Reflux / Heartburn
- Celiac Disease & Non-Celiac Wheat Sensitivity
- Chronic disease and general health management
- Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and other liver diseases
- PCOS and Women's Health
- Hypothyroidism & Hashimoto's Thyroiditis
- Planning for Pregnancy & Nutrition in/post Pregnancy
- Vegetarian / Vegan Diets
- Intuitive Eating & Food Relationship
- Meal Prep & Planning
I am passionate about nutrition and its role in helping you live a happy healthy life. I am a firm believer that all food fits and food should never be confusing or associated with guilt. I want to work together to help you navigate through all the nutrition information (and misinformation) to remove the stress out of food and nutrition.
Let’s work together to help you feel empowered with a plan that fits YOU. I look forward to connecting with you!
