I suffered from GI issues all throughout college and my early 20s. I was constantly at the doctor's office getting diagnostic tests and trying different medications with little relief. During my senior year of college, I stumbled upon the Paleo diet. While I wouldn't recommend such a rigid eating style for the long haul, it did help me recognize that eating mostly whole foods made me feel so much better. From there I was hooked and wanted to learn all that I could about nutrition for condition management.
Water, coffee, a smoothie, and five minutes of writing in my gratitude journal. Next up is a workout at The Bar Method or on my Peloton (I'm a big "do it first thing" kind of person because it gives me energy!). A walk along the West Side Highway with my pooch. Lunch followed by a trip to the farmer's market in Union Square to visit my favorite vendors (like Knead Love Bakery and City Saucery). Some self care (think: reading and dog snuggles). Finally, dinner at the local Greek or Italian restaurant with my husband and TV before hitting the hay at 9:30pm.

I’m results-oriented and big on counseling for behavior change. I use a supportive, client-centered approach to create a nurturing yet productive environment.
I previously worked as a research editor at the Dr. Oz magazine before going back to school for my RD and Master's. I’ve also been teaching barre classes at The Bar Method for 5 years.
