Lauren became interested in nutrition after she had mononucleosis in college, and her body broke out in hives…for an entire year. She met with a registered dietitian nutritionist at the recommendation of her doctor. The RDN she worked with was incredibly nurturing and compassionate, helping her understand how diet and lifestyle can significantly impact overall health. Finding a provider who listened and tailored a plan to her needs convinced her that she wanted to do the same for others. Before joining the team at Culina Health, Lauren worked in both the inpatient and outpatient settings in the Montefiore and Mount Sinai hospital systems and as an adjunct nutrition professor at NYU and CUNY Lehman College.
Supportive, empowering, and collaborative. Lauren views her patients as partners – the goal is to work together to create positive change.
In her spare time, Lauren loves going to the farmer’s market on Saturday mornings, hiking a local path with her family, reading thrillers, and enjoying a great takeout meal on the porch with her husband and a bottle of wine.
