Born with a passion to be of service to others, I set out on a mission to help people improve their health and life quality through nutrition. Afterall, everything our bodies do depends on what we eat!
I became a Registered Dietitian and began my career in a hospital setting. But I wasn’t fulfilled because patients had to be seen quickly, which limited my ability to really help them. So I transitioned into private practice and consulting to maximize the time I could spend guiding each patient toward their health goals.
With each new patient came an understanding that good nutrition habits have the greatest impact on health when started in childhood. I began working with a public school system where I developed and coordinated nutrition education activities for students in 32 elementary and middle schools. At that time I also provided in-home early intervention services for families whose children were at risk for nutrition-related problems.
My eyes were opened to a whole world of feeding and nutrition challenges that parents face every day. I realized helping parents, caregivers, and children overcome these challenges is my passion. My dream is to help as many parents as possible acheive enjoyable mealtimes and guide their children to a balanced relationship with food that supports their long-term health.
