YOUR DIETITIANS & NUTRITIONISTS

As a Registered, Licensed Dietitian Nutritionists, we believe balance is the key. We are committed to teaching our clients about making healthy choices, and celebrating their victories no matter the size of the goal.  It’s a dream come true for us to be able to live out my passions with a job that allows us to educate people of all ages about the power of nutrition and fitness, changing their habits and lifestyle, and creating a new norm for themselves and their families.  

 

We specialize in ‘lifestyle’ nutrition, diabetes management, weight management, bariatric nutrition, sports nutrition, and eating disorders.  Whether you are trying to achieve healthy weight loss, manage your blood sugars, reduce body fat, build lean muscle, fuel your performance, or create a healthy relationship with food, we believe incorporating nutrition into real-world eating is key. You won’t find any gimmicks or ‘one-size-fits-all’ diets. We believe in tailoring your needs to your personal goals.
