Meet Our Team

Joline Beauregard RD CDE

Hi! I'm Joline. I'm a Registered Dietitian, Certified Diabetes Educator, and the owner of Sunrise Nutrition.


I specialized in rural, remote, and First Nations health during my internship, spending time in Northwestern Ontario, Sault Ste Marie and Manitoulin Island. During this time I focused on learning about the factors that influence health and how to support people in making positive changes in real life.


Since my internship, life has not slowed down. After working in Ohsweken, ON, with the health promotion team for Six Nations Health Services, I moved to Whitehorse Yukon in 2018. I worked at Whitehorse General Hospital for a time, before moving to Continuing Care at Thomson Centre.


In 2020, Sunrise Nutrition was born, and the rest is history! My passion for soaking up all things nutrition has never gone away. It is now paired with a love of working with people and their families to find joy in food and cooking, support health, promote independence, share culture, and add to their lives through food.


I love what I do and can't wait to see what opportunities and people I get to work with next!


Hannah Wilkie RD

Hello! My name is Hannah.


I moved from Ontario to Northern BC almost five years ago. Recently my family has relocated to Whitehorse to enjoy new work opportunities and the great outdoors. I completed a four-year bilingual nutrition science degree at the University of Ottawa with an integrated internship. I started a position in a northern BC community, providing one-on-one nutrition counselling and other community-based initiatives. I then pivoted into a position in continuing care, which I will continue to do part-time in Whitehorse.

My passion for nutrition has evolved and is firmly rooted in a desire to share a love of planning, preparing, sharing, and enjoying food. My intention as a dietitian is to help guide clients and patients to their nutrition goals, with an emphasis on finding as much ease and lightheartedness around food and eating as possible.

I enjoy being outdoors with family and friends in my spare time, particularly in a canoe or on a pair of cross-country skis. I also enjoy sewing and singing. I am the only vegetarian in my family and have been since age 12. My favourite meal would be an extra cheesy roasted veggie lasagna, a fresh green salad with garlic vinaigrette, and a hearty helping of sticky toffee pudding for dessert.
