Crysel Velez is a Registered Dietitian in Mexico and currently practices as a Nutritionist here in Canada. She graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Dietetics and Nutrition from Vasco de Quiroga University in Morelia, Mexico. Shortly afterward she established a thriving private practice in Lazaro Cardenas, successfully supporting hundreds of clients with their dietary and lifestyle goals. Since moving to the interior of BC in 2014, and later to Victoria in 2019, she has continued her education taking a variety of courses including the International Healthcare Practitioners course from Ryerson University, Toronto and is currently working with the College of Dietitians of B.C. to obtain full registration as a dietitian here in Canada. While attending to her Canadian clients, she continues to work with her Mexican clients online as well as with those in the Latin and international communities here in Victoria.
Growing up in Mexico, Crysel was always passionate about food, cooking and nutrition. She brings this passion to her practice by creating delicious and healthy personalized meal plans for her clients, working with their specific dietary needs. She is focused on a holistic and integrative approach and prides herself in her ability to connect with her clients through compassion and good communication. Nothing brings her more joy than to help clients reach their goals.
Crysel strives to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle and to inspire those around her to do the same. She loves practicing yoga, meditation, spending time in nature, travelling and learning about the cultures and food in other countries. And don’t forget the salsa dancing!
