Hi, Jen here!

 

Tube feeding dietitian & blended tube feeding advocate

I’m dedicated to finding a tube feeding plan that works for you and fits into your life – whether you’re new to tube feeding or you’ve had one for a while, I’m here to help!

I believe that everyone should have the choice to nourish their bodies with food, even when you eat through a feeding tube.

My story

I’m a Registered Dietitian, and I’ve spent my entire career (almost 20 years..yikes) dedicated to helping people on tube feeds. 

I’ve worked primarily in a hospital, but also spent time in home care, and long term care and now here – providing virtual care for home tube feeding in Ontario, Canada.

I’ve spent all these years troubleshooting issues with tube feeding, finding tube feeding plans that work, teaching people how to use their tube, and helping people build confidence with home tube feeding. 

It honestly wasn’t until a few years ago that a patient’s family member inspired me to delve into the world of blended tube feeding. Something clicked for me and I realized that’s it’s only natural to want to eat real food through a feeding tube. 

I hear all the time that people don’t feel prepared when they are sent home with a feeding tube, let alone told about the option for blended tube feeding.

So my mission is to empower those of you on tube feeding to feel confident with this method of eating, help you gain back some control with your eating, and learn more about your options (especially with blended tube feeding).
