Meet Your Calgary Dietitians

By Medisys on February 11 2020 | Meet Our Experts

 

Chelsey Love

Chelsey Love

Chelsey completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Food & Nutrition at the University of Prince Edward Island, and her dietetic internship program in Edmonton. She’s been practicing since 2010, and loves seeing clients reach their health goals.

Her mission is to help clients find their happy place with food and their bodies. To help them feel fantastic - without restriction, gimmicks, or yo-yo dieting. She loves debunking food myths, and simplifying nutrition information so that her clients feel empowered to make healthy habit changes that are enjoyed long term.

Chelsey’s career has focused on one-to-one counselling, specializing in weight management, heart health, and food relationship. She has a strong interest in prevention of cardiovascular disease, fueled by her father’s sudden passing from a heart attack. This made Chelsey even more passionate about helping her clients lower their risk.

Clients that work with Chelsey feel heard and understood. She treats each person with respect and tailors the approach based on the individual’s goals, medical requirements, preferences, and season of life.
