Hi! I am a Registered and Licensed Dietitian in Florida with a Certification in Adult Weight Management through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Additionally, I am a Certified LEAP Therapist ( CLT ) working with inflammation of the gut. I earned my MBA from Baruch College in New York prior to becoming a dietitian and have been working in the field of dietetics for 18 plus years. In my current practice I work with clients at my office as well as remotely.
I started out as a clinical dietitian in New York where I worked with several hospitals and nursing homes. My clinical experience included, but was not limited to general nutrition, oncology, renal and acute care. During that time I supervised and managed a hospital kitchen, cafeteria and catering department.
Upon moving to Tampa in 2001, I stayed with clinical dietetics and consulted in hospitals and nursing homes. From there, I moved into a Regional position with the State and observed institutional kitchens, made recommendations on how to improve them, created menus, and worked with doctors to help them prescribe the correct diet for their patients. Since then, I have moved into private practice and hope to help even more people feel better and get well.
I’m a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the Florida Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the Tampa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and several special interest groups involving nutrition.
It is my belief that food plays an important role in many health conditions. By looking at food first, you can alleviate the symptoms of many chronic diseases. Please browse my website to see if there is anything I can help you with.
I look forward to working with you.
