Husna’s interest in becoming a registered dietitian (RD) began with her passion for eating and enjoying foods from a variety of diverse backgrounds. Being the daughter of immigrant parents, she saw her parents struggle to find healthcare providers of similar backgrounds so that lifestyle, culture and language would not be barriers. This motivated her to follow her interest in food and nutrition to become an RD and be able to help people in meeting their nutritional goals. For those who are looking for a shared background with their dietitian, Husna has a deep understanding of South Asian cuisine and can communicate in Urdu, Hindi and English.
Husna completed her Bachelor of Applied Science in Nutrition and Food from Toronto Metropolitan University. During her Bachelors, she also completed a minor in psychology and a certificate in Food Security from the Chang School of Continuing Education. She knew she wanted to become a dietitian right after completing her Bachelors and she continued to pursue a Masters in Applied Human Nutrition at the University of Guelph.
