Nicole is a Toronto based Registered Holistic Nutritionist who specializes in weight loss, digestion, and healthy eating. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree from Western University, and then completing a post-graduate degree in International Marketing from Humber College, Nicole pursued her passion for nutrition by earning a diploma in Applied Holistic Nutrition from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition, where she graduated with First Class Honours.
Her personal journey to holistic nutrition began during high school when she started experiencing digestive issues: bloating, constipation, you name it! She was eventually diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Doctors prescribed medication, and constantly told her to eat more fibre and drink more water, but nothing was making her feel better.
After visiting a Food Sensitivity Practitioner, she was advised to cut out certain food groups (gluten, dairy, and corn) to see if she would notice any changes. To her surprise, after 2 weeks, her body felt different and the gas and bloating were gone. Nicole has been off gluten and dairy for over 10 years and it has been life-changing for her.
Nicole became fascinated by how the body worked and how certain foods can affect the way you look and feel. She’s an advocate for taking an all-encompassing approach by evaluating a person’s health history, including current diet, emotional concerns, and lifestyle habits. She is best known for her positive attitude, enthusiasm, and passion for nutrition and health. She has a very positive energy that is infectious to those around her and her caring attitude is reflected in the dedication and support she gives to her clients.
She currently works with Dr. Joey Shulman at the Shulman Weight Loss clinic in Toronto.
Caroline has a busy functional nutrition and genomics clinical practice, and a coaching practice both online and at EnviroMed and VitalityMD clinics in Toronto. She specializes in women’s health and guides busy, overwhelmed women and teens towards health, energy, and brain optimization with a transformational and customized root-cause approach to health, and a clear understanding of the importance of nutrient status, gut and digestive health, hormonal balance, mitochondrial health, and brain-health connection. She’s passionate about empowering women to step out of their daily “surviving mode” into a “flourishing mode” to lead healthier, happier lives with more energy, vitality, emotional well-being, and cognitive performance connecting the mind and body. Caroline’s personally struggles with autoimmune disease and her successful health journey is a testament to the impactful contribution of nutrition.
Caroline holds a law degree from the University of Ottawa (LL.L) and mediation certification. After a career in Montreal as a litigator and mediator and a move to Toronto, Caroline decided to pursue her true passion – nutrition. An eternal seeker of knowledge, Caroline pursued additional certifications in Functional Nutrition, Functional Medicine, Gut Health, Microbiome Restoration, Culinary Nutrition, and Herbal Medicine as well as attending numerous seminars. She is also in the process of finalizing a certification in Functional Genomics (genetics) and Human Potential Coaching. Caroline is a member of a Mastermind group dedicated to the advancement of clinicians in delivering the best standard of client care and transformational programs. Caroline speaks and facilitates workshops online and at the clinics.
When Caroline is not busy at the clinic, speaking, studying, reading, or developing recipes, you’ll find her spending time with her husband and two teenage boys, playing tennis, practicing yoga, hiking, skiing, paddle boarding, biking, meditating or gardening.
