Lambton Public Health
Public Health Nutritionist

Simone has been a Registered Dietitian with Lambton Public Health since 2008. With a focus on food security, she promotes healthy eating by planning, developing, implementing and evaluating nutrition programs and supporting healthy public policy development. As Co-Chair of the Sarnia-Lambton Food Coalition (SLFC), she supports the development of a sustainable food system that integrates all of the pieces of the food system to enhance the nutritional, environmental, economic, and social health of Lambton County. The SLFC released a food system plan for Sarnia-Lambton in 2011, followed by development of the Sarnia-Lambton Food Charter and its endorsement by Lambton County Council in 2013. These successes laid the groundwork for the Let's Talk Food Lambton Community Food Assessment, currently underway. Simone also chairs the Lambton County Registered Dietitians Network.
