I am a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN), NASM Certified Personal Trainer (2019), and Certified Behavior Change Specialist (BCS, 2021) based in Boston, MA. I grew up in Amherst, MA where I attended K-12, and then earned my Bachelors of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I completed 1,450 hours of supervised practice during my dietetic internship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, one of Harvard’s official teaching hospitals in Boston, and I currently operate my practice in Plymouth, MA. I also work as an online coach for body recomposition and training (specializing in fat loss and muscle gain), and I also have extensive training in naturopathic medicine after working at a holistic clinic throughout 2022. Growing up, I struggled with body image, poor eating habits, and understanding what it meant to have a healthy relationship with food. I've played sports competitively since elementary school, but it wasn’t until my junior year of high school when it dawned on me that the food we put in our bodies has a HUGE impact on our physical and mental health. That was also when I learned that registered dietitians existed - and I knew that was what I wanted to be when I grew up! Becoming an RDN has allowed me to help people who are going through the same things that so many of us have experienced at some point in our lives. I want to help you break the vicious crash dieting cycle that leaves you more and more discouraged each time. I also want to help you learn what your body needs to thrive, both physically and mentally. I am inspired daily by my clients who are looking to improve their habits and change their lives, and are willing to put their trust in me to guide them in a way that will get them incredible results. Throughout my formal education and training, I’ve also been introduced to the Health At Every Size (HAES) approach, as well as intuitive eating. Between my BCS (through NASM) and these health-inclusive approaches to nutrition and health overall, my counseling provides a well-rounded mix of education, goal setting, forming new habits, learning a positive mindset, and learning to love your body from the inside out. I can't wait to work with you!
