Welcome to my website!

Here is my story

Growing up, my mom had several health conditions that required her to take all kinds of medications. Her doctor recommended her to see a dietitian. I went with her to the appointments and was fascinated by the connection between a healthy diet and a healthy life.


My mom was able to get off all her medications, and felt better than ever.

I wanted to learn as much as possible about nutrition, so I chose it as my major day 1 in college, and never changed!

Ten years later, I hold both a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Nutrition. I am a Registered Dietitian and professional Nutritionist who specializes in nutritional therapy and dietary education.

I have worked extensively in public health nutrition, clinical nutrition, pediatrics, and sports nutrition consulting. When COVID started, I decided to leave the hospital setting and start my own private practice.

To this day, I remain passionate about all aspects of nutrition, from physiology to teaching to publishing research. My favorite part about working in private practice is that I form relationships with my clients and truly help manage their health. I am always here for guidance and to reinforce healthy lifestyle habits.


When I'm not working, I love going on adventures, being outdoors, and spoiling my puppy Ava.
