I have always loved science and have a passion for helping others, but as a biology major in college, I was unsure which career path to choose. Since I enjoyed cooking, I decided to minor in nutrition. While taking a sports nutrition class, I discovered my love for nutrition and was fascinated by how food can be used as a fuel and also a way to prevent and manage disease. I realized that being a dietitian was the perfect way to combine all of my interests into a fulfilling career. I believe that because food is woven into so many aspects of our lives, it is supposed to be enjoyed! I strive to support patients to build a positive relationship with food. My approach to patient care is to meet my patients where they are, focusing education around their goals, celebrating their achievements, and keeping them motivated and empowered to make sustainable health and lifestyle changes. My areas of clinical interest include diabetes prevention and management, adult and pediatric weight management, and sports nutrition. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, including my husband and our two dogs, Mugsy and Odie. I also enjoy traveling, watching the Food Network, cooking, playing or watching sports, and any activity that has to do with being on the water or outdoors!
