What we eat drives how our entire body functions. But it’s hard to know what to eat when nothing seems to make you feel good and you’re swamped with everyday life. Trying to experiment with elimination diets on your own can feel overwhelming and diet is only a piece of the puzzle, meaning you probably won’t end up seeing the results you’re looking for. Plus, you might be just as confused about what your body actually needs to thrive.
If you’re like many women I’ve worked with, you’re sick of not feeling your best! Sometimes we prioritize our work, partners, family, dog, and so on and we forget that we can actually prioritize your own health. Don’t be at the bottom of your own priority list.
As someone who has lost both of my parents to cancer, I am intimately aware of the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Genes are one important part of our health, but it’s not the only part. Our lifestyle habits – your sleep, your ability to manage stress, and regular joyful movement – all play a powerful role, and can actually influence what your genes do.
Losing my parents so young pointed me on my path of becoming a Registered Dietitian. I wanted to learn how to optimize my own health as well as to be able to effectively help my clients – just like you. And as a mother, when it never seems like you reach the bottom of your to-do list, I know how important it is for keeping up with your health to be to the point and easy to follow. Otherwise, those plans are just not gonna happen.
As a licensed Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I provide you with the accountability to make real, lasting progress. No more confusion, no more pulling out (or losing) your hair. Nothing makes me more excited than when my clients start to feel like their best selves again. Sometimes it has been years since they felt so good, and it is immensely rewarding to be a part of that transformation! I am specially trained in functional nutrition, which means I help to determine the root cause of your symptoms, to permanently fix them, instead of masking the symptoms with medications.
I earned my degree in nutrition and dietetics at Simmons College and completed my dietetic internship at UMass Amherst. I’ve been in private practice since 2014 and have continued my education with courses from The Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy and with functional medicine physicians.
Outside of work, I love baking, frequent visits to my local farmer’s market, hosting stroller-friendly workouts for fellow new moms and hosting annual yoga/clean living retreats. I live in Boston, Massachusetts and help women both locally and nationally.
