I strive to provide every client with the individualized approach they need. When working with me you can expect empathy, a creative thinker with a “real-life” approach to problem solving, and a clinician well versed in deep science and the latest research. I take pride in explaining conditions, lab tests, and other concepts that many clinicians skip over.
My specialty areas include high blood sugar (prediabetes, diabetes (type 1&2), gestational diabetes), high cholesterol and triglycerides, pediatrics, and Intuitive Eating. I received my Nutrition and Dietetics degree from the University of Maryland, College Park, and I completed my required internship year at University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore. I became a licensed dietitian in 2018, and since then have expanded my experience in both clinical and community settings, been published in national journals, local newspapers, and online, and have successfully helped many clients manage their blood sugar, lower their cholesterol, and rediscover their healthy relationship with eating.
A common refrain I hear from clients is “why doesn’t everyone teach this?” as they learn to understand biology and nutrition in a straightforward way. It gives me great joy to help explain how the body works, which in turn allows recommendations to be more easily understood, rationalized, and followed. A little knowledge goes a long way.
In my spare time I love to compose poetry, play the violin, and hang out with my adorable kids. I am a runner, bread baker, and avid Jeopardy watcher. I started my practice to help make the world a healthier place, and reduce chronic illness. I encourage every single client I work with to help spread the knowledge they learn with me, to help that mission. To showcase my dedication to that mission, 20% of all profits from my practice are donated to charity.
