About Me

I’m excited to introduce myself. I am a licensed registered dietitian practicing Diabetes, disease prevention, and weight management for over 20 years. I’ve been working in private practice in two locations: Greenwich Village, NYC and Westchester, NY.

I received my Masters Degree in Science from NYU and Bachelors Degree from Syracuse University. I completed my internship at Beth Israel Medical Center in affiliation with NYU. I had the privilege to work and train closely with Andrew Drexler, MD in his Endocrinology private practice, which specialized in treating Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. I was extremely fortunate to learn firsthand from one of the foremost experts in Diabetes Endocrinology in the country.

I am currently the Diabetes educator to the Endocrinology physicians at NYU/Bellevue, where I teach the Endocrinology physicians about the latest trends in diet related to Diabetes.

I am affiliated with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators and a member of Diabetes Care in Education and Sports, Cardiovascular and Nutrition.

I love spending time with my family, friends, cooking, practicing yoga and long distance running.

One-on-one nutritional counseling

There is a vast amount of confusing and ever-changing nutrition information available. After a thorough history that includes medication, diet preferences and medical history, I will develop a sample meal plan and best strategies for meeting your goals.

Online nutritional counseling

Online sessions are more convenient and just as effective for meeting your nutrition goals. I’m happy to work with you via phone or VideoChat (Skype or Facetime). Spend more time on meal prep and less time traveling to our sessions. Please note: phone/video sessions are not covered by insurance. Please call me for rates and packages.

Lectures in schools and workplaces

I love giving presentations to large groups in schools and workplaces. Available topics are: healthy eating habits for elementary and middle school, diabetes prevention, balanced diet, and healthy meal and snack ideas.

It's all about the journey to a happy, healthy lifestyle. Moderation, not deprivation.
