Clinical dietitian and diabetes educator, Department of Medicine, Women and Infants Hospital, Rhode Island, US
“My motto as a dietitian and diabetes educator has always been to stop confusion and start control. There’s just too much misinformation out there that can be misleading, causing stress and overall anxiety with our relationship to health. My goal is to do the research and simplify the bottom line to help others feel more in control of their health choices.”

“Above all, what drives me is helping others. The most rewarding part of my job is to see the positive change, improved energy, and overall confidence my patients have after meeting with me for nutrition education and counseling.”
