How did you get into nutrition? 

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

How would you describe your counseling style? 

I’ve been an athlete all my life. In high school, I realized that certain foods assisted in me performing better during my soccer games and track races. I was also always interested in the science of exercise and nutrition, so I wanted to learn more about the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of the connection between nutrition/exercise sciences and athletic performance.

Anything that involves food or movement! I love exploring new restaurants and neighborhoods in New York City, spending time in nature, and traveling as often as I can.

Specialties

Oncology, gastrointestinal diseases and distress, sports and performance nutrition, weight management

Science-based, yet gentle. Patients often expect me to be rigid thanks to my background in research, however I pride myself on being approachable and empowering. I feel humbled to get to work primarily with oncology patients. It’s incredibly rewarding to help people feel more comfortable and confident while facing some of the toughest health challenges of their life.

professional history

Previously, I worked as an inpatient clinical dietitian at Montefiore Medical Center. I’ve also served as a research and metabolic clinic coordinator at Mount Sinai PhysioLab and an adjunct clinical professor of nutrition and dietetics at Pace University.
