I am a Registered and Licensed Dietitian. My job is to help you meet your nutrition goals safely and in ways that make sense for your personal preferences and lifestyle. My mission is to help you make peace with food, develop a confident and trusting relationship with food and your body, and never fear food again. This involves busting nutrition myths, providing lots of nutrition education, and occasionally making fun of fad diets.
Above all, I serve as a tireless advocate for my patients and thrive on watching people make changes they once thought were impossible.
I work with adults and adolescents of all genders. My practice is weight inclusive and I honor a Health at Every Size approach. That means I will never treat your body like a problem to be solved and never shame you for your weight or size. Instead, I hope to help you care for you health and well-being with nutrition that works best for you.
I have been a Registered & Licensed Dietitian since September 2012 after completing the Master of Clinical Nutrition program at UT Southwestern. During school, I volunteered and trained with Jessica Setnick, MS, RD/LD in her eating disorder private practice. Upon graduation, I worked for an eating disorder treatment home while launching my own private practice. Additionally, I have provided nutrition consulting and worked as a contract dietitian for several substance abuse treatment facilities.
Prior to returning to school for dietetics, I worked for over a decade as a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor.
I am happily married and grateful to share life’s adventures with my goofy husband. We have two happy mutts and two moody cats. I have been vegan since 2006, which helped spark my interest in and love of nutrition. I played roller derby for four years and now occasionally hang out with my running shoes, bicycle, or yoga mat. You can also find me baking, sewing, or making other crafty stuff.
