Jan’s relationship with food began early as an overweight child, struggling for years with restrictive diets and yo-yo weight loss. She decided to become a registered dietitian to learn the science of food and nutrition. Jan’s passion as a dietitian is to help others in their journey towards health and balance. Jan’s expertise spans a variety of conditions, including HIV/AIDS, weight management, digestive disorders, prediabetes and diabetes, heart disease, cancer, kidney and liver disease, and eating disorders.
Jan believes that food is medicine! She uses a collaborative approach to create eating plans that celebrate and sustain the whole person. Jan focuses on setting achievable goals with her patients during each session, focusing on their progress and accomplishments, and opposing food deprivation.
In her spare time, Jan enjoys spending time with family and friends. She especially loves eating out at the multitude of great restaurants in New York City, and always remembers to order a side veggies! She de-stresses by meditating, taking walks or biking in the park, reading (or listening to) a good book, or turning up the music and dancing in her living room!
