Samantha grew up in an active, health-conscious household, learning from a young age how what she ate affected how she felt. Through a lot of self-experimentation, she realized what worked best for her and how to feel physically good and solid about her relationship with food. Once it came time to choose a career path, Samantha blended her interest in food with her love for science and working with people, and landed on nutrition. After completing her Bachelor’s degree, she pursued her Master’s in nutrition. Before joining the Culina Health team, Samantha worked as an inpatient dietitian for a sub-acute rehab facility in New York City.
Empathetic, supportive, and motivational. Samantha has an all-foods-fit approach to nutrition. She helps her patients determine how to incorporate all the foods they enjoy unless there is a medical reason not to. She spends sessions breaking down the science for her patients to help them develop a balanced relationship with food and achieve and maintain their goals.
In her spare time, Samantha enjoys finding new ingredients at the local farmers market, creating new recipes, exploring the Manhattan food scene, running or walking, catching live music, or spending time with friends and family (which usually involves cooking and eating delicious food).
