Background

Credentials

I’ve been a registered dietitian since 2014 and became a certified diabetes care and education specialist in the last few years as well! Somewhere in the middle, I finished my Master’s of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics.

Expectations

My expectation of clients is that you communicate honestly with me. Whether things are going great or you’re having more hurdles, I want to know. If something in our plan isn’t working for you, let me know so we can pivot.

Get to Know Me

I’m a 30-something midwesterner who found themselves transplanted in Seattle. I love running, weightlifting, and cooking + baking. If I had endless time, I would actually read all of the books in my virtual TBR pile. I love laying out in the sun, farmers markets, and dancing the night away.

I was pulled into dietetics initially because I wanted to help other people lose weight. I was obese as a teenager and wanted to change my life. Really, I wanted to avoid the chronic disease I saw in people close to me.

I lost weight for the first time, without guidance, between middle and high school. This went really well at first but eventually became toxic after a plateau. I then struggled with disordered eating until early college when I was able to start shifting my perspective. Again, without guidance.

I’ve gained weight and lost weight, recovered from an ED, worked in ED care, Primary Care, and diabetes care. I’m glad to be here today, well positioned to help those who are on similar journeys – to offer the guidance I didn’t have.

When done well, weight loss is also about what you gain; confidence in your ability to deliver on your promises to yourself, healthier coping skills for hard days, and the vitality that can only come from taking good care of yourself.
