Maira Botelho Perotto is a Registered Dietitian, RD, with over 15 years of experience working in community health, primary care, school nutrition and research settings. She completed her undergraduate training and dietetic internship at the Federal University of Parana, in Brazil. During her work in family health, where she counselled individuals and families and conducted health education sessions at the health unit and in workplaces, she became increasingly interested in nutrition applied to health promotion and disease prevention. This led her to complete a Master’s degree in Public Health Nutrition at the University of Toronto, and later the Internationally Educated Dietitians Pre-Registration Program at Ryerson University. She is excited to join the Mindful Medicine team, and to share her skills and knowledge of food and nutrition to help clients build a healthier lifestyle.
