Sara Friedrich
Registered Dietitian

Sara Friedrich is a registered dietitian at the Copeman Healthcare Centre in Vancouver.

Sara graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Human Nutrition (Honours). Following graduation, she completed her dietetic internship at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine. She is currently completing the International Olympic Committee’s Diploma in Sports Nutrition.

Sara is passionate about helping her clients realize their strengths and motivating them to make positive and realistic dietary changes that can be implemented long term in their lives. She believes that all foods can fit into a healthy diet. As a result, Sara loves to teach clients how to fall back in love with food and eating, how to fuel their bodies for physical activity, and how to incorporate more plants into their meals. Her specific areas of interest include sports nutrition, plant-based diets, and intuitive eating.

Outside of her work at Copeman, Sara also provides nutrition services at Fraser Health. In Sara’s spare time, you will find her out on a run, hiking, travelling or developing recipes.
