I am a Registered Dietitian and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist with clinical experience in nutrition counseling in the areas of adult and childhood obesity, cardiovascular disease, sports nutrition, and women’s health.
I am a member of the American Academy of Nutrition and the Florida Dietetic Association. I hold a Masters in Nutrition and Health Promotion from Simmons College and a Certificate in Sports Nutrition. My thesis on Trans Fat Knowledge was published in Topics in Clinical Nutrition. I completed my didactic training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and currently work with a variety of clients in various settings. I offer personal nutrition coaching at health clubs and spas, and see patients on a regular basis at the Nutrition Clinic. Specializing in weight management and therapeutic nutrition education, I offer a non-diet approach to help clients make lifestyle modifications to effect real positive and lasting change. My belief is healthy eating does not have to be complicated. With that, I hope to empower you to reach for lifelong energy, nutrition and health. Fun Facts About Me

Our mission is to educate and inspire our clients to pursue lifelong energy, nutrition and health. Our approach is centered around evidenced-based Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) to promote healthy outcomes based on an individual’s nutritional needs and medical history. We believe in the “non-diet” approach that focuses on delicious foods for everyday living. We do not emphasize calories, carbs, fats – although they do matter. Unlike other plans and experts that emphasize diet, our focus is centered on fostering healthy eating habits for the long term. Our motto is – it’s not a diet, it’s a way of life. Understanding that small changes can lead to lasting results, we can help you find a total eating plan that works for you and your lifestyle.
