Jamie’s passion for nutrition started as a teenager when she became a vegetarian in a family that did not cook. She quickly learned how to balance nutrient needs with delicious recipes that nourished herself and her family. As a busy working mom of three kids, she understands first-hand the challenge of managing nutritional needs in the face of individual food preferences, cultural practices, and budgetary concerns. Jamie is a food-first, practical dietitian. She enjoys incorporating medical and nutritional needs into real-life, feasible changes. She has a passion for menu and recipe development and translating cutting-edge science into creative recipes for a wide range of health issues including autism, food
allergies/intolerances, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, weight management, and gastrointestinal disorders. Prior to joining Culina Health, Jamie worked as an inpatient bariatric dietitian at Northern Westchester Hospital. She is also an experienced personal chef, providing individualized, medically-based meals to families in her community.
Client-centered and encouraging, Jamie collaborates with patients to explore their motivations and set goals. Jamie encourages small, feasible changes that work within the context of a patient’s lifestyle.
In her spare time, Jamie enjoys biking, swimming, and reading. She lives for her early morning cup of
coffee and loves attending soccer games or math contests with her three busy kids.
