Hello! I am a dietitian nutritionist based out of Cambridge, MA. I am passionate about helping my clients stay healthy and feel better with each meal. My specialties include nutrition for digestive health, food allergies and intolerances, women’s health, perinatal nutrition, disordered eating, and creating positive relationships with food.

I help my clients reach their individualized nutrition goals, such as improving gastrointestinal symptoms, breaking free from the diet mentality, or having a healthy pregnancy. I am trained on how to implement a low-FODMAP eating plan – the first evidence-based nutrition therapy for irritable bowel syndrome. I take a holistic approach – exploring how food intersects with other aspects of your life – while providing guidance based on the latest scientific evidence.

My interest in nutrition began with my love for cooking and evolved from my desire to improve my own health. I received my Master’s from Boston University and earned a certificate of training in Adult Weight Management from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. In the past I have worked in the hospital inpatient and outpatient setting, corporate wellness, and community nutrition. I have taught undergraduate nutrition at UMass Lowell, and provided counseling to university students at The Boston Conservatory, and currently at Boston College. I am an active board member of the Massachusetts Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Now that you know all about me, let me know how I can help you! I look forward to guiding you on your journey toward a well-nourished life!
