Background

I am a licensed Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and Board Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist with a passion for helping others learn how food and nutrition can help people feel good and live well. I have 11 years of experience working with adults and children providing nutrition and health services with a focus on eating for health, and diabetes care and support, both in hospital clinical outpatient and the community, including with pediatric and adult endocrinology. I am very happy and excited to provide access to high quality medical nutrition therapy, care and support by offering my skills and services to you. I believe that working with a well-qualified professional is very important in reaching your healthcare goals. I specialize in motivating and empowering adults, children and families to learn how food and nutrition play an important role in living well. It is my mission and passion to share my knowledge, education and ability to help you develop a specialized health and nutrition care plan as well as provide education and tools to achieve desired results. I have worked with and helped many people develop specialized diabetes care plans, making it easier to manage their diabetes from day to day. Developing an eating style to ensure daily nutritional needs are being met to support health and wellness and also keep your blood sugar at healthy levels are two of the best things you can do to keep your A1C in target range. Having an A1C in target range is very important for reducing risk and preventing further health complications from diabetes such as eye, kidney and heart disease. I would love the opportunity to work with you. My specialty also includes working with diabetes technology such as continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems, Dexcom and FreeStyle Libre, insulin pumps, as well as helping individuals learn how to use technology to match food and meals with insulin dosing to achieve in healthy blood sugar. It would be my pleasure to have the opportunity to partner with you. Sincerely, Patricia
