Who We Are

Erin Ostler
Erin OstlerBSc, RD

As a Registered Dietitian, Erin has a passion for all things food, nutrition and fitness. She has practiced in a variety of clinical, community and private practice settings over the years. These include acute care at the Brockville General Hospital (BGH), in-patient and out-patient mental health as well as the cardiac rehab program at BGH, home care nutrition counselling, and working as a Dietitian and certified personal trainer at Skyward Active Health Centre.

Having been a cross country athlete turned recreational runner, Erin understands firsthand the importance and role of nutrition for both overall wellness and physical performance.  She has had the pleasure of collaborating with local sports teams as well as the Running Room to share her knowledge and passion for sports nutrition.

Attaining and maintaining improved health requires gradual lifestyle changes that she believes should not only be enjoyable, but also realistic and sustainable. There is no single plan or program that works best for everyone. As everyone’s body is different, each client deserves a personalized nutrition therapy plan unique to their needs, beliefs, schedule, and goals. Using an evidence-based and weight-inclusive practice Erin takes a collaborative team approach to find what will work best for the client.

Erin graduated from McGill University in 2013 with a BSc in Nutritional Sciences and Dietetics. Over the years she has continued to increase her knowledge and skills in the areas of: intuitive and mindful eating, sports nutrition, digestive and heart health, Health at Every Size®, plant-based eating and disordered eating. She is a member of the College of Dietitians of Ontario, Dietitians of Canada, and is a Certified Craving Change™ Facilitator.

In her spare time Erin can be found with her husband and golden retriever doing some sort of outdoor activity whether it be hiking, kayaking, gardening, etc. Having a passion for food, you might also find her in the kitchen trying out new recipes or reading a good (almost always nutrition-related) book. She also has a spirited Flemish giant rabbit who excels at eating the most veggies in the family.
