My Story: Pierrette Buklis, MHSc, RD

Senior Manager, Health & Nutrition – Canada

 

I am an accidental nutritionist.  I’ve always enjoyed food and excelled at science, but from an early age people had me pegged as a future journalist or lawyer.  My part time jobs didn’t suggest a health-focused career either: during most of high school I worked in a grocery store and then during my second year in university I became a boat captain/tour guide.  It wasn’t until my final undergraduate year that I began to seriously consider a career in nutrition.  And yet, I can’t imagine a better preparation for where I am today! 

I lead the group that guides our Canadian business in understanding the impact of our products on the health and wellbeing of our consumers and their families.  We follow nutrition, health and social science research to find the pieces that help our teams make responsible business decisions and then communicate those with the right audiences.  We provide perspective to Canadian regulators and policy makers about the scientific and practical implications of new directions in that field.  We meet with our Canadian health and wellness colleagues to trade insights, provide information about our products and business that supports their client interactions and we gather their feedback to let us see our work in new ways.  In two words, I’d sum up my role as “nutrition compass”, and I love charting a course to better health through the foods people love!

Favourite way to enjoy a General Mills Product: An Old El Paso™ Smart Fiesta Tortilla filled with whatever combination the kids and I fancy that day!
