I noticed people struggling with the overwhelming wave of confusion when it comes to nutrition

Especially when trying to work out what to eat to manage several medical problems at the same time.

People were either handed too little or far too much information, and the need for a clear, concise guide was evident.

So, I channeled my expertise and experience to craft tailored solutions, ensuring that everyone can understand and apply essential nutritional principles to their unique situations.

The Missing Link in Your Nutritional Voyage

Early in my career, I saw how important it was for people to have accurate, personalized and clear nutrition education, support and ongoing care.

Having the right balance of information can illuminate the path to optimal health, ensuring no one feels overwhelmed.

The journey isn’t just about which nutrition information to follow but also about feeling empowered with the right tools to make sustainable changes.

Many of my clients kept asking for the basics of meal planning, food preparation and cooking – practical, relatable information that benefited their health.

And this is what I’m here to do.

I believe in a holistic approach to nutrition, considering the food we consume and our lifestyle, preferences, and unique needs.

With over 17 years of experience as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, working in private practice and hospital environments, I’ve seen how important it is to provide clear, practical and simple nutrition information. Especially when trying to manage multiple health conditions.

I aim to empower my clients to make informed choices and adopt sustainable dietary habits that promote long-term health.

I grew up in Europe without fast food, eating homemade meals.

I learned how to cook from scratch – learning to make meals that focused on whole food ingredients – but they had to be quick and easy. Because who wants to spend hours cooking?!

I moved to the United States over 20 years ago and have a good understanding of American foods and what else is available besides American food. In Europe and other global cultures, people can live longer if they eat traditional, whole foods, not just highly processed foods.

So, I help my clients bring the benefits of traditional whole foods from around the world to their everyday diets.
