I grew up in a small town in upstate New York. I completed my degree in Nutrition/Dietetics at Marywood University in Scranton, PA in 2006 and immediately moved out west to start my career in Los Angeles. After a year, I moved to Las Vegas and have been practicing Nutrition/Dietetics here ever since. I spent about 8 years working in dialysis, so I am familiar with the consequences that come from uncontrolled Diabetes. I am excited to be able to provide counseling and motivation to clients to help them take control over their health NOW, rather than bare the consequences later in life.
Along with a love for nutrition, I also find great value in incorporating mental health into my practice. So often we find that mental health and diet are connected. If we are depressed, we eat. If we eat the wrong foods, we lose our physical health which leads to a decline in mental health. Over the years I have found a love for yoga. It has helped me a great deal with finding contentment and calm in my life. It has also done amazing things for my physical body. In 2015 I became a certified yoga teacher and am looking forward to combining yoga and meditation with nutrition in order to better address both the physical and mental aspects of health.
Some “fun facts” about me: I am addicted to sushi and eat it more often than i should. I love live music. Going to shows and listening to music is like therapy for me. I have recently discovered the joy of traveling and have 2 trips scheduled for 2017. I’ll be going to Costa Rica and Malorca, Spain
