I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist + Health Coach, and I educate others on how create a sustainable lifestyle that will enable them to achieve their wellness goals. Throughout my education and career, I have been exposed to and have researched the most cutting edge nutrition therapies and studied highly effective coaching techniques that will help you lead the life you have always dreamed about!
My mission is to educate others on how to become the best version of themselves through nutrition and lifestyle in order to help them feel their best and decrease risk of chronic disease and obesity. Rather than focusing on a full lifestyle overhaul, I will coach you on how to implement small, positive, sustainable habits that will create a more balanced lifestyle.
I believe in an integrative and functional approach to nutrition, which focuses on the whole person and aims to address the underlying cause of disease. This philosophy centers around a holistic approach to health through the use of diet modification and personalized supplementation based on an individuals’ specific needs. I have witnessed the tremendous impact even simple dietary changes can have on a person’s health, energy levels, and laboratory tests!

EDUCATION AND TRAINING
After completing my Masters of Science in Nutrition at Case Western Reserve University and coordinated dietetic internship at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center in 2016, I was hired as a full-time outpatient dietitian at the Mansfield VA clinic. I continue to work there and counsel Veteran’s on not only general nutrition but weight loss, diabetes management, and other types of chronic disease prevention and management. In addition, I teach weight loss classes and a diabetic cooking class. I obtained my Certificate of Training in Integrative and Functional Nutrition in August 2019, and am currently completing the Institute of Transformational Nutrition’s Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach (CNTC) Program.
