About
I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) with over 5 years of counseling experience. Personally, my mother inspired me to become a dietitian. My whole life, I watched her yo-yo diet, exercise to burn, and develop a terrible relationship with food. I lost my mother to cancer when she was only 47. I learned that life is like a vapor, gone too fast. I hope to help individuals end the yo-yo, start enjoying life, build a level of fitness they can be proud of, and as a result be all that they were intended to be. I personally enjoy running very much, and will be training for my next PR soon! I specialize in working with clients looking to manage their weight, enhance their body composition (fat loss and muscle gain), optimize athletic performance, and improve their overall wellness.

I am so grateful to Valentina, and how much I have learned from her! She immediately put me at ease as she explained things, and I was so impressed with her professionalism, wisdom, and positive way of challenging me. I’ve learned so much about nutrition, and specifically how to fuel my body at my fitness level and for my age; but Valentina also helped me explore the negative ways I thought about food.... I have been able to change my mindset and relationship with food to one that is positive. I no longer use food to control or manage my emotions, but truly just want to give my body what it needs to thrive and stay healthy and strong! I have lost a significant amount of weight (30 + pounds!), and I’m down three clothing sizes! I really don’t think I could do this on my own. The guidance, encouragement and accountability of working with Valentina was a game changer for me!
