For the past 8 years, I have worked as a Registered Dietitian in a variety of settings. As a personal trainer, I initially got into nutrition to fuel my body, but my focus shifted as my health declined. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease, Lyme disease, SIBO, and hypothyroidism. Because of my own battle, I've learned what a huge role nutrition plays in treatment/recovery! I love working with clients who have these conditions because I know first-hand what works and understand the frustration of not knowing what to eat. I also have experience working with other G.I. disorders, eating disorders, diabetes and weight management. On another personal front, my struggle with PCOS and the consequent years of amenorrhea due to over-training unveiled yet another nutritional domain I'm passionate about: fertility. The journey wasn't easy, but in the end I learned firsthand the power of informed nutritional and lifestyle changes on hormonal balance and fertility, and I was blessed with twins. Let me help take away the fear and bring enjoyment back to eating as you recover your health.

Here are the key steps involved in becoming an RD:
Atlanta is a great city, but it isn't always the healthiest place to raise a family. With a significant proportion of overweight or obese residents, car dependency, and somewhat limited areas for walking and biking, it can be challenging for Atlanta residents to ensure that their kids are consistently making healthy decisions.
Unfortunately, Georgia has one of the nation's highest obesity rates, which takes a significant toll on the health of Atlanta's kids. The availability of fast food, limited time for families to cook and enjoy nutritious meals together, and many children preferring screen time over outdoor physical activities have contributed to thousands of children and adolescents in Atlanta struggling with their health and fitness from an early age.
Although Atlanta has options for public transportation, many residents rely on vehicles to get around. The size of the city and the lack of pedestrianized and bike-friendly areas make it difficult to walk to work or school, so kids get used to depending on cars for even relatively short trips. These habits can lead to sedentary behavior and a dislike of walking and cycling, even though these are healthier, cheaper, and more environmentally-friendly modes of transportation than driving.
However, the good news is that with gradual behavioral and dietary adjustments and swapping unhealthy foods for nutritious alternatives, kids and teens have an excellent chance to control their weight and maintain an active lifestyle as they move towards adulthood.
We firmly believe that our telehealth services offer the best way to get pediatric nutrition support when you need it. However, there are other options that you may want to consider when confronted with a nutrition challenge. Here are some of the pros and cons of alternative options.
