About Sam Wilson

Hi I’m Sam!

I completed my Bachelors of Science with Honours Specialization in Nutrition and Dietetics at Brescia University College. While I was becoming a dietitian, I was diagnosed with celiac disease. This led me to be interested in all things GI. In living through this diagnosis, I realized how important it is for a patient to understand their diagnosis and receive good care.

Advocating for my patients is what I do best; I am deeply committed to championing the cause of my patients. As a trusted registered dietitian, I can help be a voice for their nutritional needs and concerns, ensuring that they receive the support and guidance necessary for their journey to optimal health. Whether it's working with you to craft a personalized nutrition plan or providing education on sustainable lifestyle changes, I am committed to making a positive impact on the lives of those I work with.

In my training and career, I have had a broad spectrum of experiences that fueled my passion for delivering comprehensive and empathetic care to individuals facing health challenges. These diverse exposures equipped me with the ability to navigate the complexities of nutrition in different clinical settings.

I specialize in:

  • Celiac Disease and Non-Celiac Wheat Sensitivity
  • Digestive disorders including IBS, IBD, EoE, microscopic colitis, GERD, SIBO, diverticulitis, and more!
  • PCOS
  • Chronic disease and general health management
  • Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD, NASH)
  • Women's Health
  • Meal prep & planning
  • Vegetarian and vegan diets

I firmly believe in the transformative impact that proper nutrition can have on one's overall well-being. This belief serves as the driving force behind my commitment to continuous learning and staying abreast of the latest developments in the field. I am dedicated to translating this knowledge into practical, patient-centered solutions that empower individuals to achieve their health goals.

I can't wait to work with you!
