I am a Registered Dietitian and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor who uses the Health at Every Size (HAES) philosophy and a non-diet approach. I received a Bachelors Degree in Science in 2002 at Mount Mary College in Wisconsin and shortly after, I moved to California and obtained my Registration in Dietetics. I have over 17 years of experience in clinical nutrition and counseling.
I was introduced to Intuitive Eating and HAES years after trying to restrict client after client by initiating diets that turned out to be fallacies. My vision and passion now is to incorporate evidenced-based principles while serving as a guide in your journey to learn to truly enjoy ALL foods, incorporate sustainable healthy behaviors and make peace with your body.
Let me help you find who you are!
In my free moments, I enjoy spending time with my boys and family, trying new restaurants, hiking, traveling, watching movies and football (#goPack), playing cards, and finding fun ways to incorporate exercise. I do enjoy cooking, however, I am not an expert and need to follow recipes precisely more often than not. I have so many favorite foods, but my top 3 would be crab legs, chocolate and Mexican!
A healthy relationship with food allows you to live an abundant life.
