I am a Registered Dietitian (R.D.) specializing in the care of adults with prediabetes, type 1 and type 2 diabetes. I hold the philosophy that there is no one-size-fits-all method to healthy eating and diabetes management, and approach each patient interaction with this in mind. I strive to help patients meet their nutrition goals, while maintaining a healthy relationship with food and eating. In my free time, I enjoy meal planning, cooking, traveling, reading and spending time with friends and family.
