Liana Bontempo

MPH, RD, Dietitian and Wellness Manager

We would like to wish Liana Bontempo the best as she moves on from Queen’s University. We are actively recruiting a new dietitian and will make an announcement when this position has been filled.

Liana’s farewell,

I have so enjoyed my time working with my amazing colleagues, passionate campus groups, and the wonderful students. I will be facilitating the transition for the incoming registered dietitian with Hospitality Services, who will no doubt be just as excited to be a part of this team as I have been. While I will be moving to a new career opportunity outside of Queen’s, I will still be active in the University nutrition and food allergy community. I am excited to see how my path with Queen’s will continue to cross!

For students, parents, or staff working with students who have dietary concerns or allergies, please direct them to our Campus Executive Chef Colin Johnson. Chef Colin has been incredibly vigilant and supportive of Queen’s students who require dietary accommodations for many years and is happy to support them in any way.


Wishing everyone all the best!

Liana Bontempo
