Hello, Choose Food Community!
I am thrilled to be joining this team and am looking forward to further promoting the vision and message of Choose Food!
A little about me… I am a Licensed and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist from Austin, TX. I completed my education at Texas State University, where I obtained a Master of Science in Human Nutrition, a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition Science, and completed my 1,240 hour supervised dietetic internship program throughout the Austin/San Antonio area.
Since becoming a RDN in 2015, I have worked as a child nutrition specialist for a local school district, a clinical dietitian in a hospital setting, and with numerous individuals one-on-one for private nutrition counseling.
I enjoy working with a variety of different clients! Some of my favorites have been:
- Athletes: especially distance/endurance athletes such as marathoners or triathletes. Whether it’s for an upcoming training cycle or help meeting specific goals, I love helping fuel athletes to their best!
- Moms: pregnant, postpartum, nursing, or just super busy moms with real lives and a house full of kids! Nutrition can get lost in the chaos of motherhood, and I enjoy helping moms find practical, sustainable ways to keep it a main focus for themselves and their families.
- Chronic Dieters: the “always on a diet” and obsession with food trends is a rough path! I thoroughly enjoy helping people break the maddening diet-cycle and develop a loving relationship with food.
- Chronic Conditions: medical nutrition therapy can be life changing for those with lifelong conditions, such as diabetes or PCOS. I am incredibly passionate about using nutrition as an integral part of the care process for all types of chronic conditions, and using food as an enjoyable means to help manage them as well!
On a personal note, I am a wife of a teacher/coach, mother of three little ones, marathoner and avid runner, foodie, and movie lover. I practice balance with life and wellness and food, and love helping people do the same.
I look forward to this journey with Choose Food and all it will bring!
