I am a registered dietitian (RD) and a certified nutrition support clinician (CNSC) with 12 years of experience providing medical nutrition therapy. I have an undergraduate and a graduate degree in nutrition and dietetics and I am currently pursuing a doctorate degree in clinical nutrition to further advance my knowledge and skills as a RD. I am very passionate about helping others and I strongly believe that non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, etc. are preventable by making certain lifestyle changes and I aim to provide sustainable ways to make those changes rather than a "diet" approach. I have a strong ability to communicate nutrition advice to individuals from different backgrounds and cultures. Coming from a South Asian background, I have a strong understanding of how culture, including cultural foods, habits, and environment, impacts one's lifestyle choices, so I keep that cultural lens on when helping others navigate those barriers.
