Julia is one of those heroes.
I’m a registered dietitian working at the Nanaimo Transplant Clinic and the Nanaimo Kidney Care clinic. In my role, I help people who’ve had a kidney transplant achieve proper nutrition by taking into account a number of factors such as other medical conditions, renal status, and nutrition-related side effects of their medications. I also work with people on achieving a more active lifestyle.
I’ve been a part of the Nanaimo Transplant Clinic since it opened in April 2015. When I found out that Nanaimo was going to get a transplant clinic, I was excited to join the team. Having worked in renal for a number of years with both dialysis patients and those in earlier stages of renal impairment, I looked forward to being a part of another aspect of their treatment.
I really enjoy being a part of the transplant recipient’s journey and hearing their stories. I feel honoured at being able to help them in any way I can to live a healthy and happy life.
