I have been a Registered Dietitian for over 13 years and could not see myself doing anything else. I became an RD because I always found the relationship between diet and health fascinating. I have an undergraduate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Connecticut and completed my Dietetic Internship at Yale-New Haven Hospital. I earned an MS in Nutrition and Wellness from the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford (completed just in time a month before my first born arrived!)

I am an early bird and total science nerd. In the early morning hours before my kiddos wake up you can expect to see me reading and keeping up with the latest nutrition research. This is very important to me because the research is constantly changing and I have to keep up. This knowledge base is tapped during your sessions so I can guide you in your journey using the latest evidence-based information.
