- Who you are?
I am a registered dietitian, mom, 94% healthy eater and sporadic fitness fanatic.
- Why did you choose nutrition as your career?
I found a field that was interesting to everyone, and I could embrace in my everyday life. I love meeting and helping people. “Do what you love” – I am fortunate to have found that.
- How long have you been practicing?
For the last 15 years I have done one-on-one nutrition counseling. I’ve also facilitated groups and classes for diabetes, weight reduction and eating on a budget. My earlier career was food service management in healthcare settings.
- What’s your approach to practicing nutrition?
I love to eat. I love good simple food and delicious decadent food. I do not like telling people what they should and should not eat. I would rather help figure out how to fit the food you love into your goals.
- What do you think is one key to success for your clients?
I particularly enjoy the diversity of clients I have helped. Professionals, parents, healthy, overweight, managing or preventing disease. From busy fast food and convenience eaters to new vegans looking for meal plans, recipes and supplement advise – I can relate to anyone interested in dishing about food and nutrition with me.
