After being born and raised in Tallahassee, I received my Bachelor and Master Degree of Science in Health and Nutrition from the University of North Florida. I completed a dietetic internship as part of that Masters degree program. I sat for the RD exam and became a Registered Dietitian (RD) in 2000. I have worked in many different areas of nutrition throughout my career including cardiac rehab, weight management, diabetes education, long term care, and employee health and wellness. I have been in private practice for about seven years and offer one-on-one counseling services and provide health presentations.
As a licensed and registered professional, I perform continuing education to maintain my certification and licensure. I am a life-long student and constantly reading and researching the latest trends, theories and research. Nutrition is a science that is constantly evolving and changing and I feel it is my duty and respsonsibility to be knowledgable on current trends while providing evidence-based, real information to clients. As part of this continued learning, I became a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor.
As a holistic, non-diet Registered Dietitian, I help clients approach nutrition, movement, and other lifestyle habits from a different perspective that incorporates not only physical wellness, but emotional and mental wellness as well.
