My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I help people make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.

My extensive training in nutrition theory also allows me to conduct classes and workshops on a variety of health and wellness topics, perfectly tailored to the health concerns of your individual business or organization.

In addition to my Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching certification, I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism and have spent the past several years writing and blogging on a variety of health and wellness topics. My blogs have been mentioned in a number of publications including The New York Times, The Times UK, Stars and Stripes, Real Simple, Good Housekeeping and Allure.
