Owner and lead Dietitian at MLE – and most importantly – mama to two boys who set her off on the journey of helping parents feed kids when they started their own picky eating phase. Thankfully, due to over 11 years experience in the field of pediatric nutrition – her boys are now super adventurous eaters after implementing all the strategies she’s picked up along the way.

She’s holds two post-secondary degrees – the first in Neuroscience from Dalhousie University, and the other in Applied Human Nutrition from Mount Saint Vincent University. She’s a life-long learner, passionate about dissecting the research and turning it into real-life recommendations that make it easy for parents to understand and implement. Her mission is to give parents the ultimate confidence feeding their kids in a healthiest way possible. She developed the Texture Timeline™ as a tool for parents to ease into solids and expand the variety of textures offered to babies during their sensitive period of taste and texture acceptance.

Bri is a speech language pathologist and certified lactation counselor who specializes in pediatric feeding disorders (PFDs). She enjoys providing mentorship and education to students and professionals, as well as coaching families through treatment and referrals.
Bri ensures that all MLE material is accurate from the perspective of swallowing, chewing, and all oral-motor related issues! She works on assessing the texture and safety of foods for babies and toddlers and makes recommendations for how to serve them and where they fall on our Texture Timeline™ – our library of videos showing how to serve all foods to babies according to texture phase, age and stage.
Bri has extensive experience working with infants and children clinically, as well as speaks internationally on PFDs. She strives to provide neurodiversity affirming care in a family-centered, evidence-based model, with lots of fun along the way. You can learn more about Bri @pediatricfeedingslp on Instagram.
It surprises people to know: Bri is also fluent in American Sign Language. Before diving into pediatric feeding, she was really interested in Deaf culture and took classes alongside her SLP coursework.
Go-to drink: Dirty chai tea latte.
Biggest fear: Losing all her teeth at once. It is a recurring dream Bri has when stressed out (happened a lot in grad school lol) that is now a real fear.
