My background in psychology, nutrition and dietetics, exercise physiology, and public health together have provided a perfect blend for helping me inspire you to achieve your health goals.
I am a doctor of Public Health (PhD) and a licensed registered dietitian (RD) through the national Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR), and a licensed nutritionist (LN) through the Florida Department of Health. I have a Master's degree in public health, a Master's degree in clinical nutrition with a minor in exercise physiology (ACE certified), and am a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, as well as the American Public Health Association (APHA).
My 24 year career has been dedicated to helping others in their quest for health through nutrition, health and wellness coaching. I have worked with private organizations, private, community, and non-profit clinics, as well as in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and in group and school settings. My private clients have improved a multitude of health conditions including successes with weight loss, diabetes, gastric disorders, post surgical care, gastric bi-pass, improved energy, overall wellness, sports nutrition, pediatric nutritional care, pregnancy and nutrition, post baby weight loss, improved digestion, and reduce abdominal fat.
From working mothers, menopausal women, teen dancers, sport jocks, touring musicians, cross country truckers, young actresses, stressed entrepreneurs, world travelers, night shift nurses, to those needing just a little bit more energy ... nutrition consulting, goal setting, personalized plans and follow ups have all helped hundreds of my patients over the last two decades improve their health and reach their wellness goals.
My personal journey to health has given me a wonderful opportunity to pass on my life experiences, successes, and education to those ready to continue their own health and wellness journey.
