Making Healthy Living seem accessible
I also offer consulting and brand partnerships and am available as a speaker or podcast guest.
I hold a Masters of Science in Clinical Nutrition from New York University in addition to a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Emerson College. I completed my dietetic internship at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
I have experience in the clinical setting, long-term care, corporate wellness, and private practice. I’m currently the dietitian and health coach for the Valley Breast Center in Northern New Jersey, where I counsel patients on healthy lifestyle and risk reduction as part of a comprehensive breast cancer survivorship program.
What I love about working in nutrition is that it allows me to help others make connections between mind and body wellness to live a more balanced life. Self-care is possible, even when it feels like you have no room for yourself on your to-do list, and my goal is to help people feel great for life instead of just getting revenge-hot for five miserable minutes.

For fun, I love spending time with friends and family—and my pets. I used to think I was strictly a dog person until I met my husband, who came with two cuddly rescue cats that keep us laughing. I also have a soft spot for storytelling shows and dark comedy. I love to move and am a certified Pilates instructor. I also enjoy barre and yoga. When it comes to food and drink, I like my coffee black and my bourbon neat. I’m a stickler about vegetables, and I love breakfast. I hate quinoa but I do love kale, that other Food Nutritionists Love. I think it pairs especially well with bacon—all things in moderation.
