I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over 25 years of counseling experience. Personally, nutrition has always fascinated me, and it still does. It amazes me that by making small changes we can make a big postiive impact on our health now and in the future. I have seen first hand so many amazing changes in my clients when they make changes for themselves. It's so inspiring for them, and for me too! I have even helped members of my extended family reach their goals - my daughter and her college rowing team, my niece with gestational diabetes, my sister with weight loss, my other sister with GI issues, and my son with healthful weight gain. As a dietitian, I specialize in working with clients who have concerns with weight management (adult and teens), as well as overall health and wellness goals, diabetes, heart health, and woman’s issues from pregnancy to menopause.

My coaching style

I want to transform your life through nutrition. When we meet, I’ll listen to what you want for yourself and motivate you in a positive way. Every person’s nutritional goals are unique, and we will set small goals for a big impact. I believe that all foods can fit into your health plan; there are no foods that are “off” limits. As we work together, I’ll help you navigate through any nutritional questions you may have and we will figure out what is the best choice for you. I will take into consideration your whole lifestyle - which includes movement, sleep, and schedule management - so that your body will feel the best it can.

Lori is awesome. From our very first session, she made me feel seen, heard, and valued. I've made major progress on my goals over the past few months, but more than that I'm feeling a new sense of confidence and pride in myself. I recommend her highly.

Lori listened diligently as I explained my struggles in the beginning. Each time we met, we tried something new and she offered such good advice not only for physical health, but mental health as well. We collaborated on my menopause and osteopenia in addition to my desire for losing weight. She shared cooking tips recipe ideas ingredients I might want to try and always remembered my goals and keep me focused on achieving them
