About This ProviderPrint

Why did you become a dietitian?

I have always been interested in how nutrition impacts our health.

What motivates you each day as a healthcare provider?

My goal is to improve the health of each and every patient by helping them and their parents to understand the importance of a nutritious diet and physical activity. 

What is the most important message you would like to share with your patients?

*Usually two to three simple changes in diet and lifestyle can make a huge impact in a patient's health and well-being. 

*You are not that number on the scale. 

Any fun facts that you would like to share?

I have a Golden Doodle (dog) named Rusty! He's cute, furry and very friendly.
