When I am not seeing clients you can find me: At an outdoor concert, practicing yoga, crafting, thrifting, meal planning, cooking, gardening, (even though I am not good at it),watching true crime documentaries and traveling with my family.
Things that bring me joy: Making lists, using essential oils, candles, a killer rock playlist, a great pour over coffee and touring farms & breweries.
A fun fact about me is: Before becoming a dietitian, I was a ballerina! I danced from 8 to 18! I have preformed with The Donetsk Ballet Company, NJDTE/NJDTG, European School of Dance and NJBC.
I truly look forward to the opportunity to be a part of your wellness journey!
Before establishing my private practice, I was an outpatient dietitian for The Center for Eating Disorders, a private outpatient multidisciplinary group specializing in the treatment of eating disorders, specializing in adolescents and children with eating disorders.I earned a Bachelors's Degree in Health Sciences from Rutgers University, School of Related Health Professions, and completed my dietetic internship at Johns Hopkins Hospital and Greater Baltimore Medical Center.Additionally, I have worked as a clinical dietitian providing medical nutrition therapy for the pediatric unit, NICU as well as ICU.
