If you ask my family and friends they will tell you I practice what I preach.
I believe in bioindividuality and that there is no one perfect diet for all. I honor where someone is at in their health journey and can help anyone advance their health to a better place. I have had a variety of experiences in my 30+ years in the health and wellness industry. I graduated with a degree in psychology and post graduation further my studies in Nutrition and moved to Boston for a dietetic internship at Brigham and Women's Hospital. Post internship I was hired at Brigham and Women's hospital and spent 5 years as a clinical dietitian. After my clinical experience, I explored a variety of areas including private practice, work in a test kitchen, teaching cooking classes at adult education, and managing a holistic health care office.
In 2011, I owned and operated a women's gym that combined small group personal training with nutrition. After a few years, I returned to my roots in weight management and nutrition coaching. During this time I also earned a certification in holistic health coaching and completed 2 year of advanced studies in applied functional medicine. I have found my passion in using the principles of Functional Medicine in my Nutrition work with clients.
I enjoy travel, fitness, cooking, fishing, spending time near the ocean and all of the above especially with friends and family.
I have a very practical approach to nutrition & lifestyle coaching and understand what it takes to implement change. This helps me make my recommendations “real”. I am not someone to just provide a list of WHAT to do, but also help you on HOW to do it and WHY. Let me be your guide in becoming the healthiest YOU!
