Sydney Massey, MPH, RD
I love teaching. I’m fascinated with food, cooking, how people eat and how this relates to health. And I love growing food. How fortunate I am to have found this position at the BC Dairy Association, at the crossroads of nutrition, education and agriculture. I have been working here for over 40 years, first as a nutrition educator, and now as the Director of Nutrition Education. My Masters’s degree in Public Health prepared me well for this job.
I’m proud of the many projects I’ve been part of, from developing the Calcium Calculator, to the FoodTrack series of nutrition resources, to pioneering the important role dietitians can play in supporting and promoting the use of local food, and most recently, to promoting eating together through the Better Together initiative.
I grew up in New York City, and while I still love it and visit my large, boisterous family often, I am happy to live in Vancouver where I can enjoy city life, grow some of my own food and tangle with a jungle of a backyard, where my husband and I satisfy our curiosity for how things grow.
