I’m excited to introduce myself. I’ve been practicing nutrition for over 20 years and love working with all types of athletes and people with diabetes or hormonal imbalances.
My goal is to help patients balance lifestyle and healthy eating plans that they can maintain for the long-term. I encourage whole, unprocessed foods, and I recognize that a nutrition plan needs to be individualized to match lifestyle.
Expertise with athletes
I’m team nutritionist for Hoka NJ/NY track club, where the athletes are performing at a high level, working toward the US Olympic team. I have been an athlete all my life, practiced gymnastics for 15 years, and now an avid runner. I use the most current research to support optimal performance. Whether you’re looking to compete at the Olympic level or exercise to lose body fat, I can help create the right nutrition plan. All foods fit into a healthy diet as long as the base of the diet is from whole, unprocessed ingredients. Athletes will perform best when their eating plan is individualized and matches their current training load.
Expertise with diabetes
I’ve been fortunate to gain a strong medical background working with Dr. Andrew J. Drexler, one of the foremost endocrinologists in the field of diabetes and hormone imbalances. I present at numerous physician grand rounds at NYU/Bellevue on the diabetes diet. In my practice, I work closely with a patient’s medical team with all types of diabetes and hormonal issues: PCOS, pre-diabetes, type 2, type 1, LADA, MODY, and gestational diabetes. I’m happy to create a nutrition plan that helps keep blood sugars in control and matches your lifestyle.
How I can help
I can meet in-person or conduct online sessions to educate about ways to make a positive change towards living a healthier life. We will focus on healthy habits and meal planning to feel confident about food choices.
