I have always been a foodie and even as a child I had a love of cooking and an interest in health. I feel strongly that everyone should be able to enjoy their food and at the same time feel comfortable with their own body. I am always trying to come up with creative solutions to the challenges that keep my clients from optimal health and wellness.
I counsel adults and adolescents with a variety of dietary needs—including health and wellness, eating disorders, diabetes, kidney disease, cardiac disease, PCOS, pre- and post-natal nutrition, relationship with food, and more. I focus on easy-to-implement lifestyle changes, alongside continuous motivation and guidance.
In addition to overseeing my private practice, I am a lecturer with SUNY College at Oneonta where I teach undergraduate students how to become excellent Dietitians. I teach courses
in nutrition education and counseling, food science and cooking, as well as basic nutrition.
I also have over four years of experience working in various positions as a Registered Dietitian within the areas of long-term care, acute care, private practice, and home care.
I completed my dietetic internship at SUNY College at Oneonta and received my didactic program in dietetics certificate from there as well. I also have a Master’s Degree from SUNY Oneonta in the area of Dietetics. I am currently pursuing a Doctor of Clinical Nutrition online with Rutgers University School of Health Professions in order to become an advanced clinical nutrition practitioner.
Most recently I am completing training to become a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor so I can walk my clients through regaining a healthy relationship with food and body image. My approach of Intuitive Eating focuses on 10 basic principles that create a non-diet and health at every size focus.
In my free time I enjoy cooking, spending time with family, friends, and my dog 🐶
