Jennalle Butcher, RD
Private Practice and Sobeys Dietitian
Jennalle has worked as a Registered Dietitian since 2010, after graduating from MSVU's dietetics and integrated internship program in Halifax. She has enjoyed work in various practice areas but has predominantly worked in the community setting as a Sobeys Dietitian. She loves her work with Sobeys because it's all about food! She gets to help people navigate grocery shopping, label reading, and cooking delicious food, while running group programs that are accessible to all. The position also allows her to work with customers one-on-one in nutrition education. The challenge of adapting to a virtual practice is keeping her on her toes in 2020.
Jennalle currently finds a beautiful balance between working part-time as a Sobeys Dietitian in Upper Tantallon, and working part-time in private practice in Halifax, above the Bedford Basin Farmers Market. She enjoys the challenge and independence of running her own practice, and the opportunity to focus on clinical interests. She calls her practice Appetite Nutrition because she helps her clients learn to trust the body's appetite as an important guide from within.
