I’m a dietitian specializing in pediatrics through young adulthood, as well as a runner, mom, and ice cream connoisseur. I am a weight-inclusive, non-diet dietitian and advocate of intuitive eating. I'm passionate about working with families of children with feeding and growth concerns as well as young athletes.
In the past I struggled with my own eating issues, which culminated in a diagnosis of female athlete triad – I had an under-fueled, highly active body and an overly stressed mind, and had trouble getting pregnant. Since my own recovery, I have dedicated my practice to helping people achieve nutritional balance, not perfection.
