Dr. Pamela Fergusson, RD, PhD, is a plant-based dietitian with 15+ years of experience that spans several continents. As a super mom of four, she takes a practical, evidence-based, and gentle approach to her consultations with clients, but when it comes to standing for what’s right, she’s not afraid to be vocal. She’s spoken out about dairy advertising to children in Canada, and she’s also written papers to educate other dietitians about working with transgender and non-binary clients. On top of that, she’s a self-published cookbook author, sunflower seed fanatic, and winner of the Toronto Marathon’s speed-walking division. This conversation is fun, informative, and just might incentivize you to start speed-walking.
