My Journey in Nutrition

I absolutely love my job as a diabetes educator and dietitian. Each day, I have the pleasure of building relationships with incredible people while helping them achieve their health goals and improve their quality of life.  

Prior to starting my private nutrition counseling practice, I had several experiences in inpatient and outpatient clinical dietetics, and I have also worked in the fitness, food service, and community industries. Now, at RDRx Nutrition, I work one-on-one with clients to create a personalized nutrition plan that fits into their lives. My sessions go over nutrition history and current lifestyle to identify possible barriers to change and create a customized meal plan that includes recipes.

My mission is to help people create a healthy relationship with food, which doesn’t mean restrictive dieting! Whether training for an athletic event or looking to change their life, I am with my clients every step of the way … creating sustainable and realistic strategies specific to their goals. My clients never cease to amaze me with their introspective thoughts and achievements.

On top of nutrition counseling, I also coach CrossFit, regularly host women’s fitness events, and enjoy practicing yoga. Collaborating with Flo is an incredible opportunity to connect people with better ways to approach nutrition without fad dieting or negative side effects, and I’m so glad to be here!
