Background

Hi there! My goal as a private practice dietitian is to be the missing piece between the nutrition education you may receive during time spent in the hospital and being sent home on your own without any follow up. My specialty is to provide medical nutrition therapy in a wide variety of diseases including diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease, and many other gastrointestinal disorders such as GERD, IBS, and IBD.

I have been a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist for almost 5 years now. I earned both my Bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Science and completed my dietetic internship from Pepperdine University. I went on to earn my Board-Certified Specialist in Renal Nutrition (CSR) through the Commission on Dietetic Registration and my Certified Nutrition Support Clinician (CNSC) through the National Board of Nutrition Support Certification.

A little about me: I became a dietitian because my mom was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes when I was in high school. I became invested in nutrition research to help her control her blood sugar levels and interested in pursuing a career that could also prevent the onset of such diseases. On a personal note, I love staying active, whether that is cycling, hiking, playing tennis, or walking my aussie dog. I also love to make new recipes and try new dishes from around the world.

During our sessions together, we will navigate your health journey to achieve a healthier, happier version of you.
