Clients can expect to be heard and understood while working with me. I enjoy having conversations with my clients because it serves as an opportunity to develop trust. Trust is important in our guided sessions because I need my clients to trust that I am in service to provide education, unravel nutrition myths that may have derailed progress in the past, investigate and help identify where behavior changes may be best implemented. I have over a decade of experience in motivating and inspiring people through my time in the armed forces, nursing homes and intensive care units, I find great pleasure in working with a range of personalities, disease states and age groups. I have my Masters of Science in Dietetics and Nutrition, and I have a keen interest in navigating the complexities of diabetes, IBS, IBD, women’s health and weight management. I use a therapeutic approach to make the sessions more balanced and rewarding as nutrition and health is more complex than the things that we eat. I love to travel, and eat cultural foods, however, Publix’ birthday cake stands firm as my favorite food. I enjoy cooking and recreating recipes. When I am not in the kitchen, I enjoy walking in nature to take in my surroundings and reflect.
