After years of stomach aches and skin problems, Jennifer was determined to take things into her own hands after so many doctors chalked her symptoms up to IBS. She was over the daily mystery of what would or wouldn't cause insane bloating and other GI issues. She was also over the confusing world of Instagram and fad diets, and was stumped about what "healthy" even meant after being told so many conflicting things over the years. So, she started to experiment with how basic nutrition could actually improve some of her biggest problems (without any medication), all while increasing her energy and bettering her mood. She swapped convenience foods and diet snacks that she was hooked on for years for satisfying, real foods...food literally became her healing solution.
Before becoming a dietitian, Jennifer worked as a research editor for a major health magazine in New York City. On the daily, she found herself having in-depth conversations about nutrition and wellness with health experts and registered dietitians. This only deepened her interest, leading to her lightbulb moment: Instead of asking the experts, why not be the expert? After being diagnosed with a thyroid condition, she became even more fascinated with the science behind nutrition and hormones.
Jennifer holds a Master’s degree in clinical nutrition from New York University. She completed her clinical training at Montefiore Medical Center where she also then worked as an inpatient clinical dietitian working in cardiology. Additionally, she holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Florida.
Jennifer specializes in thyroid and diabetes management, culinary nutrition (everything from grocery shopping to cooking tips and healthy recipes), and family and pediatric nutrition (6 years and up). She loves finding creative ways to make healthy food more fun for both kids and parents, all while framing nutrition in a positive light.
She lives in New York City with her husband and Australian Labradoodle. In her spare time, Jennifer loves grocery shopping (yes!) and hunting down the newest products to test out and experiment with in her kitchen. You can also find her teaching barre classes at The Bar Method Noho.
