Joel Barohn, MS, RD, Chef
I am fortunate to work for the hard-working dairy farmers throughout BC. Before joining BC Dairy, I worked as a Health and Wellness Program Coordinator for a Texas-based dairy association. I am proud to say I have worked for dairy farmers in both Canada and the US.
Prior to moving to Vancouver, I attended the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and later taught culinary school to the public. My passion for food and a growing interest in nutrition led me to discover the intersection between what we eat and our health. I soon decided to become a Registered Dietitian and combine my passion for education, good food, and wellness. In addition to community engagement, I also enjoy talking to youth about sports nutrition.
Outside of work I love to travel, look at art, play sports, explore the outdoors, and spend time with my wife. I believe success is gained through partnerships and feel as a community, we can make a healthier BC.
