About Quin

Right before leaving for college, Quin was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and several food allergies. She had been planning to go to school for engineering, but knew that wasn’t her passion. With a new found interest in nutrition she changed her major and never looked back! Eating is something we have to do every day and Quin strives to make this less confusing. She loves being able to help people include more foods they enjoy and have less fear surrounding eating. Before joining the team at Culina Health, Quin worked at The Renfrew Center for eating disorders.

Get To Know Quin

Favorite cultural dish or comfort food: Pierogis! I grew up making them every Christmas with my grandmother and cousins. They are always so comforting and such a fun family tradition.

Favorite recipe: Creamy chicken poblano soup

Favorite thing to purchase at the farmer’s market or grocery store: Fresh breads/pastries

Grocery shopping tip: Go in with a plan and ideas on how you are going to use the items you’re getting, but leave room for items you didn’t think about/seasonal items that weren’t on your list!

What’s one small thing someone can do today to work toward a balanced eating pattern/lifestyle? Think about what can be added to current meals/snacks/habits rather than thinking about what needs to be taken out of your current routine to bring in more balance.

A habit you swear by: Keeping a water bottle on me everyday to make sure I’m drinking enough water. Pro tip: get a larger water bottle to not have to fill it up as much throughout the day!

Nutrition philosophy in a nutshell: All food provides benefit to the body. We have the foods that feed our body and we have the foods that feed our soul. We need to choose foods that will provide both to have a healthy relationship with food.
