The Team

Have you met our team? You’ll have to swing by one of our events to meet the crew

Megan Tran: President


This school year I have the honour of being a part of the Nutrition Course Union. I hope to make this the best year the Nutrition Course Union has ever had by providing the nutrition students with loads of socials and events throughout the year to look forwards to. These events can help take some stress away during the busy school year and add some fun while making your experience as a nutrition student all the better. I’m excited for what we have in store and hope to have a wonderful event filled year!

Virginia: Vice President

Alexis: 4th Year Communication Representative


Hey everyone, I’m Alexis 🙂  I’m so looking forward to getting to know you all this year!  Here’s a little bit about me: I just recently came back from my second time in Southeast Asia, it’s one of my favourite places in the world, and the food is so incredible!  I basically spent two months eating my way through Asia! I love emerging myself in different cultures, tasting new delicacies, cooking during my spare time, and yes, spending hours on end in a book store reading or studying.  This year I’m hoping to help ease some of that everyday stress, by keeping you up to date with our awesome educational and fun events!  Be sure to follow our instagram account @nutritioncourseunion and I promise to keep you ‘posted’ during this upcoming year!
