Background

In the realm of nutrition and well-being, my approach as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and yoga teacher comes from a diverse set of skills, experiences, and a deep commitment to individualized care. Armed with a Master in Public Health (MPH), specializing in behavior change, I transcend the traditional role of a dietitian, offering a unique blend that I refer to as my "holistic culinary nutrition" approach.

At the core of my philosophy lies the belief that there's no one-size-fits-all solution to nutrition. Instead, I champion an individualized approach, acknowledging the unique needs, preferences, and goals of each client. Unlike a conveyor belt of generic meal plans, my process begins with active listening. Your wants, needs, and dietary preferences become the cornerstone of our collaboration. Together, we craft a personalized strategy that seamlessly integrates into your lifestyle.

Culinary nutrition is more than a profession to me; it's a passion. I revel in the art of modifying classic, comfort food recipes to achieve a more balanced and nutritious profile. This approach is about enjoyment and sustainability – making healthy eating a delightful experience rather than a restrictive regimen. Drawing inspiration from my extensive travels and studies of international cuisines, particularly the Blue Zone diets, I infuse a global perspective into our culinary journey.

My commitment to holistic well-being extends beyond the plate. As a registered yoga teacher, I integrate mindfulness and body awareness into our nutrition goals. It's not just about what you eat but how you relate to your body and nourish your soul. This holistic approach transcends the conventional, treating the body as a whole rather than just addressing symptoms. I view health as a dynamic interplay between physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Specializing in digestive concerns, eating disorders, and weight-related challenges, my experience as a health coach dietitian, food and nutrition corporate marketer, nutrition spokesperson, and copywriter enriches my understanding of the multifaceted nature of health. I am not merely a guide in your nutritional journey; I am your accountability partner, offering support and expertise to navigate the complexities of your unique path.

In choosing to work with me, you are opting for a creative and holistic guide who goes beyond conventional nutrition advice. Together, we'll embark on a transformative journey – not just toward a healthier you but toward a more mindful, joyous, and sustainable relationship with food and well-being. Away from work, you'll find me dancing, surfing, recipe testing, or simply soaking up the sun on a tropical beach. If you seek a personalized, innovative, and compassionate approach to nutrition, we may be the perfect fit!
