She completed her comprehensive dietetic internship at Sunnybrook Health Sciences. In 2010 she became a Certified Diabetes Educator.
Breena promotes an “all foods can fit” philosophy with an emphasis on setting individualized client goals that are sustainable and realistic for the client. Over the last 17 years Breena has worked in a variety of settings as a dietitian which enables her to bring a well-rounded perspective to client-centered care. Having started in public health, but missing client contact, she moved to diabetes education and home-care services. Following the birth of her first child, she ventured into long term care consulting and rehabilitation work. Shortly after her second child Breena and her family moved to beautiful Muskoka where they enjoy all that cottage country has to offer.

Breena and her family spend a lot of time on their large forested property hiking. She enjoys camping with her family and try to go to a different provincial park every time. When not running from one kids sports game or practice to the other she spends time at their family cottage on the French River. If not doing any of those things she can be found in the gym lifting heavy things!
