To use my passion for educating others on how to become the best version of themselves through nutrition to decrease ones risk of chronic disease and obesity.
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. 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.
