Carla D’Andreamatteo


Carla completed her Bachelor of Human Ecology with a major in nutrition from the University of Manitoba followed by a dietetic internship with Saskatoon District Health. She has completed her Masters degree in Human Nutritional Sciences (2013) at the University of Manitoba. This experience involved working in the area of food security and conducting research with the homeless population in Winnipeg. Carla has further conducted local and international presentations on her research.

In 1999 Carla established a place in private practice within Manitoba and has extended that to the province of Saskatchewan. Extensive knowledge and experience with nutrition needs of remote, northern communities is an area of strong interest for Carla (having originally hailed from northern Manitoba herself). Further interests include food security, nutrition for arthritis, geriatric nutrition, to name a few. She continues to use her formal education related to teaching adults in a number of settings (group education, individual counseling, program development and delivery).

Carla has remained active in the profession of dietetics through membership in committees for professional standards at the provincial level and as a member of continued competency at the national level. She is a member in good standing with the College of Dietitians of Manitoba (CDM). Active living is an important part of Carla’s life. She has taken part in ½ marathon events in Manitoba as well as Europe (in support of The Arthritis Society) raising funds and awareness for arthritis. Giving back to the profession is something that Carla is passionate about. She presently volunteers in the position of Board Member for the Canadian Foundation for Dietetic Research.
