Like many of us, I struggled for years with my weight. I put myself on low-calorie diets, only to feel deprived. Within days, I would end up eating more to compensate. My weight went up and down…but mostly up. I felt anxious around food and frustrated about my inability to control my weight.
After developing skin rashes from food allergies when I was 25, I became very interested in the effects of dietary change on my health. I decided to go back to school to study nutrition and become a Registered Dietitian.
Learning about the connections between food and our health enabled me to make the appropriate, long-term changes to my diet that resulted in feeling better than I had ever dared to dream. Not only did I reach my goal weight and stop experiencing food allergies, but I became a calmer, more energized person overall, which helped me grow in the emotional, social and professional areas of my life. For the first time, I became fully conscious of how nutrition could support my overall wellness.
Balanced meals, nutrient density and mindful eating are the key principles in my approach to nutrition. I believe that optimal wellness – which includes emotional health as well as physical health – is based on a healthy diet, combined with doing physical activity that you enjoy, meeting your needs for sleep, managing stress levels, doing meaningful work, and nurturing your most important relationships.
My passion is helping people transform their lives through nutrition. As a working mom with three young children, I understand the daily challenges that can interfere with healthy eating. I want to help you reach your wellness potential and feel your best so that you can enjoy life to the fullest!
