MS, RD, CSSD, BC-ADM
Registered Dietitian / Diabetes Educator / Sports Nutrition & Exercise Physiologist
I have a Bachelor degree in Human Nutrition, a Master of Science in Advanced Metabolism and Exercise Physiology, I’m a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, and a Diabetes Educator with Board Certification in Advanced Diabetes Management. In short, it has been my career as well as my passion to promote nutrition and exercise as the powerful tools that they are.
Throughout my career I’ve worked in a variety of settings (hospital, college campus, nationally recognized diabetes center, outpatient clinic, physician’s office) and embraced technology working virtually with clients around the world. I’ve been a speaker at national conferences, held classes for local clubs, instructed continuing education seminars, and staffed training camps. These experiences have allowed me to meet amazing people, be inspired, expand my application of nutrition and more fully realize how uneducated both the general population and healthcare community are in regards to using nutrition/food as a tool for optimal health.
My approach is to work individually with each patient/client to help them achieve their goals. My knowledge and counseling specialties include nutrition for the prevention and treatment of disease, weight loss, digestion/metabolism, disordered eating, diabetes management, meal planning for energy and nutrition for sport performance.
Whether you are an accomplished athlete looking for an edge or a weekend warrior looking for improved strength, come and let me help you understand sports nutrition and the science of exercise. If you are frustrated with your energy level, your body/weight, experience chronic issues with poor digestion or overall health status; don’t continue to suffer alone, let me help you devise a nutrition plan and support you along the way. If you are a migraine sufferer looking for relief or have diabetes and find yourself lacking support because you feel you know more than your doctor, ... look no further! Let me help you by giving you the knowledge and support you need to ACHIEVE Health & Performance.
