The Food of Life Philosophy

 

As a  faith-based dietitian, I believe that the Biblical principles of stewardship over the bodies we've been given are essential for achieving and maintaining health. I have a drive and an excitement for improving my clients' quality of life through sustainable healthy eating practices and lifestyle change. I strive to inspire the motivation to improve health that begins from within each of my clients.

 

I address genetic and environmental factors that shape how our bodies function. My tools are evidence-based Integrative and Functional Nutrition, best practices in weight management, and whole food resources to help you achieve whole body balance. This includes changes in eating habits to manage diabetes & cardiovascular disease, as well as symptoms of chronic inflammation, undetected food sensitivities, and compromised digestive health.

My training includes a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition & Dietetics from East Carolina University and a

dietetic internship through Lenoir-Rhyne University.  I also hold a Bachelor of Science in Biology from

Hampton University and a Master's in Public Health from Virginia Commonwealth University.

Most recently, I completed a Certificate of Training in Obesity for Pediatrics & Adults.

 

I began my career in health & wellness over 10 years ago as a Weight Loss Coach and have also worked

as a Naturopathic Lifestyle Coach under the supervision of a Board Certified Naturopathic Doctor. 

 

My clinical experience includes working as a consultant Clinical Dietitian in Long Term Care.  In this role,

I assessed and monitored the nutritional status of all residents and provided medical nutrition therapy

for a variety of conditions including Diabetes, Heart Failure, Kidney Disease, Tube Feeding, Malnutrition,

and Wounds.
 

In individual sessions, I help my clients set SMART goals, explain nutrition concepts in ways that are easy

to grasp, create a client-specific pattern of eating for their lifestyle,  and offer creative solutions for helping

clients overcome road blocks to lifestyle change.  I look forward to working with you to meet your health goals.
