More About Me

I graduated from the College of Saint Benedict with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Nutrition and to be honest, I wasn't sure if I wanted to become a dietitian, as they historically have been deemed the "food police" and I certainly didn't want to play that role. Thankfully throughout my education as I completed the final didactic classes to become eligible for an internship, I realized that is not what being a dietitian entails.  I completed my dietetic internship through Saint Louis University and also received my Masters of Science in Medical Dietetics. 
I have been passionate about food and nutrition my entire life. As a three-sport collegiate athlete, participating in both Cross Country and Track and Field, I experienced first-hand the importance of adequately fueling your body for performance. I still enjoy running and participate in as many races as I can, with the marathon being my favorite distance. My passion with sports and nutrition lead me to become a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD). I help athletes work through injuries, injury prevention, and learning how to adequately fuel for optimal performance. 
My primary experience is working with eating disorders and disordered eating. I have worked in all levels of care from inpatient to outpatient, including a wide variety of ages and diagnoses. I also have experience with women's health, chronic health conditions and assisting clients with making lifestyle adjustments.
Food is an essential part of life and it can be so confusing, especially now. This is where I can help. I value developing trust and rapport with my clients, as food is personal, and want them to feel supported as we work together. I will be your biggest supporter and cheerleader throughout the process!
