How did you get into nutrition? 

What do you enjoy doing when you aren’t working?

How would you describe your counseling style? 

My body was sending me serious S.O.S signals and one of the very last things I tried was altering my diet. It suddenly dawned on me that food was the missing piece of the puzzle in helping me improve my various health conditions. 

While I’d always been fascinated by science, it wasn’t until I saw a dietitian myself (and experienced amazing results) that I realized I wanted to make a career out of helping others in the same way. 

My ideal day off would start out with a delicious homemade breakfast followed by some adventure time outdoors, and catching up with friends over a nice meal. I’d finish the day relaxing in my comfiest PJs while reading a good book or watching a movie.

Collaborative. I believe establishing rapport is incredibly important because nutrition isn’t just about eating healthy food — it also affects us emotionally. By fostering trust through supportive guidance and empathy, I create a safe space for my clients to truly dive deep.

It’s so common to get to a point of mental, emotional and physical fatigue from trying to manage a chronic condition. My approach to addressing medical fatigue is to start by simply listening to the client. Since the root cause of medical fatigue is the overwhelming feeling of juggling too much, I help people tackle one thing at a time and prioritize what needs to be addressed first. We take the machine apart and work on all of the individual pieces so that the machine as a whole feels easier to maintain.
