Background

Hey, there! I’m Alexandra, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, and I’m so excited to support you on your nutrition journey!

When I was a child, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, and learning how to navigate the nutrition of this condition is what inspired me to become a dietitian myself. For many years, I struggled with pain and other symptoms of my condition, until I found a lifestyle and medical management plan that has allowed me to achieve and remain in remission; this background is what drives me to provide others with tailored nutrition strategies that help them achieve their own health goals - because I understand first-hand how powerful nutrition can be.

To me, nutrition isn’t calories or numbers on a scale - it’s a lifestyle. I embrace health at every size, and I enjoy helping my clients to develop a deeper connection with their body through intuitive eating practices. For my clients, I strive to provide a safe and welcoming space in which to discuss barriers and challenges and work to overcome them together. I am a proud “nutrition nerd” who enjoys reading the latest nutrition research, so whether you prefer to focus on big-picture topics nutrition topics or get into the nitty-gritty of the scientific literature, we will work well together!

My time spent working as a clinical dietitian in a hospital setting has afforded me familiarity with a variety of complex health conditions. I gladly welcome clients of any age, lifestyle, and medical background, but some of my particular passions include the areas of health-centered weight goals, plant-based nutrition, Crohn's disease and IBD, kidney disease, heart disease, tube feedings (enteral nutrition) and other nutrition support, family nutrition, and older adult nutrition - just to name a few!

If you think I’d be a good fit for your nutrition journey, let’s connect!
