About
I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over 15 years of counseling experience. My passion for nutrition was ignited as a young teenager with my first job being in a hospital food service. I was captivated by the dietitian's intellect and compassion. I later found myself running often, and I fine-tuned fueling before, during and after runs and races to enhance my strength and speed. This, by far, was the game-changer that allowed me to qualify for the Boston Marathon in 2016. I have Bachelor's and Master's degree in nutrition and dietetics, and I am board certified in Integrative and Functional Nutrition. My specialty includes working with clients who have gastrointestinal issues and those looking to improve mood and mental health with food, nutrition and lifestyle modifications.
