About me


I became interested in nutrition as a teenager when I developed GI issues and nothing seemed to help – until I finally figured out that limiting certain foods had a major impact on how I felt. My nutrition philosophy then fundamentally changed throughout adulthood and I now see that the less we restrict, the better we typically feel.

I’m a huge nutrition-science nerd with two postgraduate degrees. I’m passionate about constantly learning as well as meaningfully helping people – and as an RD, I do both! Originally I’m from the Washington, D.C., area and now live in Nashville. I’m a vinyasa yoga teacher and an avid podcast-listener. I have been a devoted Beyonce fan since before she was world-famous (think Destiny’s Child with 4 members). If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll learn a lot about nutrition for women and you’ll see a lot of my French bulldog, Cora.

  • Individuality. No lifestyle fits everyone. Otherwise, nutrition would be easy! Different foods work for different people. In our work together, we’ll determine what uniquely fits you.

  • Authenticity. Life can be hard and people are messy. Clients can “show up” as they are and that is always enough.

  • Evidence Basis. No pseudoscience here – just counseling rooted in research. As a Registered Dietitian, I uphold high standards for information that I provide.

  • Foods First. While supplements can be helpful for filling in gaps, I believe we should first meet our needs through food.
