How I work with my clients

They Come To Me, I Go To Them, Virtual or Telephone Consultations

No Business Info Yet

I am a clinical dietitian currently working in an inpatient hospital setting. I see a wide variety of patients each day. I work mostly with patients in the ICU and those with kidney disease, diabetes, various bowel diseases, pancreatitis, liver disease, cardiac problems, and a variety of cancers. I love helping patients turn their lives around by educating them on healthier diets and being able to provide adequate nutrition for those needing tube feeds. While I love helping people get out of the hospital, I have an even greater passion for keeping people out of the hospital and working with preventative nutrition. I decided to become an RDN after being very involved in sports while I was growing up. Training and competing in figure skating and taekwondo gave me the opportunity to see how much my performance was based on the foods I ate. Fast forward to becoming an RDN, I am still very interested in performance/sports nutrition, but I have also learned that I have a passion for gut health and food sensitivities. The GI and immune systems are my favorite body systems. Food has a direct impact on gut health. I believe that chronic inflammation is at the core of most disease. This is what lights the fire I have for food sensitivities and the immune response that happens in our bodies. Because of this, it is my passion to learn as much as I can and teach as much as I can about new research and practices in preventative treatment of disease to keep you out of the hospital and feeling great. My goal is to serve anyone who reaches out and asks for help in taking control of their health through whole, minimally processed food specific to their own needs.
