Meet the Team

Gail Vaughan, Franchisee

Gail fell in love with nutrition and healthy living while attending University. For years Gail suffered from poor health, low energy and frequent infections. It wasn’t until she began to look closely at the foods she was eating and her overall lifestyle that her health improved. She graduated from Memorial University of Newfoundland with a Degree in Linguistics, with the intention of pursuing a career in Audiology. But by this time her love of health and fitness sent her on a different path. She then attended the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Halifax, Nova Scotia and graduated with Honours with a post graduate diploma in Natural Nutrition. Gail loves to live a healthy lifestyle focusing on eating whole foods and being active. She loves to cook, bake and spend time in her own vegetable and fruit garden. When she isn’t meeting clients or helping out in the Natural Food Market, Gail can be found spending time outdoors with her husband and two boys or at a hot yoga class!

Danielle MacIntyre, RD

Through a practicum in long term care, Danielle was able to develop relationships with elderly clients and understand the challenges of maintaining good health through nutrition as we age. During a practicum in public health she spent time working on policy development and educating high risk populations on nutrition related topics, including the importance of breastfeeding. It was through this experience in public health that Danielle developed a strong interest in women’s health. Danielle finished her internship at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, where she spent several months in various departments including pediatrics, ICU and renal dialysis. Danielle thoroughly enjoyed her internship, learning new things every day and developing new skills. Danielle now lives in St. John’s, Newfoundland where she is registered with the Newfoundland College of Dietitians and is a member of Dietitians of Canada. Danielle specializes in the management of chronic diseases including type one and type two diabetes. When Danielle is not at Simply For Life, she loves travelling, going to the gym, hiking, reading and trying out new foods and recipes!

She brings her passion for nutrition and helping others together to deliver guided cooking classes, nutrition education and exercise programs to the community. With extensive experience in food preparation, Robyn is no stranger to the kitchen. She is on a never ending quest to prove that healthy foods CAN in fact taste great.

She has also had the privilege of leaving her mark in the community by designing a menu for a local health food café. With great understanding of the emotional and social ties we have to our food, Robyn is able to guide her clients through the process of making healthy alterations to their family’s favourite recipes.
