    What I Do
    As a registered dietitian, I like to focus on individualized care. Every patient who I work with has his or her own unique lifestyle, and I don’t think a one-size-fits-all approach works when dealing with nutrition. I like to focus on the patient’s overall health rather than just the number on the scale. I am interested in eating disorders, sports nutrition, weight management and heart healthy eating.

    Why I Love My Work
    I enjoy helping others improve their lives and witnessing the happiness that comes from that. Also, I enjoy the challenge of finding unique ways to improve patient habits because every patient’s path to success is different. I decided to go in to outpatient dietetics, specifically eating disorders and weight management, because these populations are actively seeking help. I enjoy helping patients who are motivated to improve their lives by implementing change.

    Getting to Know Me
    My personal interests and hobbies revolve around being active. I enjoy activities like playing basketball, hiking, running, swimming and other outdoor activities. Often, I like to do these activities with friends, family or my fiancé, Anna. I enjoy watching live sports in person or on TV too. I want my patients to know that dietitians don’t eat “healthy” all of the time. I include several sweets in my diet weekly, and that is OK.
