I gain so much from the wonderful work my interns do to support my practice and social media presence. They are curious, motivated and open to learning. You can learn more about the amazing things they are up to below! THANK YOU, INTERNS!
Hi my name is Blair Thompson. I just graduated with a B.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of North Florida. I am also recovering from anorexia and binge eating disorder. I started my recovery journey in April 2014. I have fibromyalgia, which makes doing everyday things challenging. I am hearing impaired and I wear hearing aids. Being hearing impaired has allowed me to have a unique perspective of the world we live in and I love it. The body positive and recovery community has helped me accept myself inside and out and I will continue to give back to the community. I am forever grateful for the love and support from the BoPo and recovery community on Instagram.

My name is Isabelle Chaput and I am a 21-year-old Sudbury native. I am currently entering my fourth year of my degree in Physical Education with a specialization in Health Promotion. My education has given me a lot of information on health, exercise physiology and psychology. I am currently working in a nursing home in the Life Enrichment department and plan on going into medicine. Learning about nutrition and the HAES approach is important to me on my journey into healthcare so that I can better understand and connect with my future patients.
My name is Vivianne Chagnon. I am 21 and native from Montreal. I just finished my second year in Dietetics at McGill University. Body dissatisfaction is present more than ever in our lives, and I think it is important to do something to help everyone touched by this. As a future dietitian, I find the HAES approach innovative and would be really interested in working with this approach. This internship opportunity is also giving me the opportunity to work my communication skills. I am trying to develop the “French side” ofthis blog since my mother tongue is French. Apart from this, I love baking with a healthy twist and a horse lover.
