Ally Gallop is a Registered Dietitian under the College of Dietitians of British Columbia and is a member of the Dietitians of Canada. She graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2012 with a Bachelors of Science in Food, Nutrition, Health, majoring in Dietetics, and graduating with Honours. She completed her dietetics internship with and currently works at St. Paul’s Hospital as a Clinical Dietitian with interests in pre and postnatal health, diabetes, sports nutrition, weight loss coaching, and healthy heart eating.

Through a stint as St. Paul’s outpatient dietitian, Ally realized that individual counseling was something that she wanted to pursue. With a passion for preventative health, exercise, and working amongst an interdisciplinary team in delivering the best support for a client, Glow is an environment in which Ally has always wanted to become a part of. Though her training is based on science and research, she balances this with motivational counseling, exploring barriers to healthy eating, and keeping an open mind to alternative methods of nutritional healing. Her goal is to both educate and empower clients in setting and accomplishing their goals, developing an individualized plan for success.

Years ago, a sports-ending knee surgery and subsequent rehabilitation deflected Ally’s interest onto nutrition, leading to her current role as a dietitian. Keeping both loves in the forefront, she also became a Canadian Fitness Education Services (CFES) certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor. She has completed several athletic events including multiple distance races and half marathons, triathlons, Tough Mudder, and was involved during her university years with UBC Rec.

As a consultant, she has been published through the New York Times, has been interviewed by the Vancouver Sun, and has presented for the YMCA. Future goals include attending graduate school for a Masters in Public Health Nutrition and becoming certified as a Diabetes Educator.

Ally’s credentials in both nutrition and exercise allow her a unique offering to clients including one-on-one and small group counseling, grocery shopping assistance or tours, or even as an exercise coach.
