Judy Sheeshka

Chair, Board of Directors, CFDR • Retired Former Chair, Dietitians of Canada.

After attending the University of British Columbia, Judy completed an internship at the Ottawa Civic Hospital. In 1992 she earned her PhD (Dietetics) from the University of Guelph.

Judy has worked in a variety of settings – clinical, community health, public health and academic. Her time as Associate Professor at the University of Guelph led to her most recent position as a Professor and Discipline Head of Dietetics in the College of Health & Biomedicine, Victoria University in  Melbourne, Australia.

She has been a member of DC for almost 30 years and has volunteered on many committees and as well as previously served two terms on the Board of the Canadian Foundation for Dietetic Research (CFDR). Judy has contributed to professional and government discussions on such topics as menu labelling, package labelling and population-based sodium reduction strategies. Working internationally furthered her respect for the significant advances in dietetic practice developed by DC and Canadian dietitians.
