I know you. I know your challenges, concerns, and stress around food and nutrition. I know because I've lived it and nutrition changed my life — for the better.
Before I became a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I had a stressful career in finance. I worked long hours, survived on business meals and caffeine, and traveled between Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C.
That high-stress life affected my health. Eventually, I was diagnosed with digestive problems. Due to my severe food reactions, I dreaded eating. I hated most of the foods that I used to love.
Nutrition and the low FODMAP diet changed my life and healed my relationship with food. My experience inspired me to become a nutritionist in order to help people with food and nutrition issues.
I completed my graduate degree and dietetic internship with the University of Illinois at Chicago, including clinical rotations at NorthShore University HealthSystem and Northwest Community Hospital.
I'm an expert in the areas of wellness and prevention, digestive health, and weight management. I help adults with low FODMAP and gluten-free diets. I'm also experienced with autoimmune and neurological conditions.
I currently split my time between Seattle and Chicago, while I'm in the process of transitioning permanently to Seattle. For now, I love being able to enjoy all of the wonderful things about both cities.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, yoga, and the outdoors. I've hiked the Grand Canyon twice and completed my first 14er. I've been to 47 of 50 states, visited 4 continents, lived in Europe, and can order food in 5 languages.
Sessions are available online by secure video chat or in-person. My Chicago office is booked through Spring 2019, so I'm only meeting with new clients online or at my office in Seattle's Pioneer Square. Many of my clients are only online and find that experience best fits their busy lifestyles.
