Hi everyone! Yes, cheesy title, I know, but it did catch your attention, didn’t it? So, as you may have guessed, my name IS Fleur and I’m a graduate of the Nutrition and Food program at Ryerson. After graduating from the program, I decided to work in the pharmaceutical industry. Then, in 2009, after much planning and over-analyzing, I finally took the major leap and decided to return to school full time to obtain a Registered Dietitian designation and/or a Masters in Health Science. It is my goal to complete advanced studies in this amazing field (Nutrition) and I don’t want to be limited in any professional (and personal) capacity! So, I sold my house in Toronto, quit my job, and moved back in with my parents so I can have the means to fulfill this dream. Let me tell you, it has been one eye-opening and exciting journey!

In addition, I am also completing a Certificate in Food Security. Community development, health promotion, and food security have always been interests of mine and finally, after studying the many community-based courses I enjoyed and volunteering in various community agencies, I now have the opportunity to participate in a community development project. Travelling to New Orleans allows me to obtain the hands-on experience I longed for and it is my hope that this is only the first of many international volunteer experiences. I am so excited to play a part in this project and consider myself  very privileged to have such an opportunity!
