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,
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.
