Hello! I am a licensed, registered dietitian nutritionist based out of the greater Boston area. I began Nourish for Life because I am passionate about inspiring others to live a happy and healthy life. My nutrition philosophy revolves around real food as love and medicine. I use nutrition therapy to help each client reach their unique goals.

My love for nutrition grew from helping my family and myself eat well for better health. I received my masters degree in nutrition from Boston University, and earned a certificate of training in Adult Weight Management from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Prior to starting Nourish for Life, I worked as a clinical dietitian at Beverly Hospital, an outpatient dietitian in a bariatric surgery practice, and consulted for a corporate wellness company. I also counseled students at The Boston Conservatory, and taught undergraduate nutrition at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.

In addition to managing my private practice, I am a freelance writer for Ovia Health, manage nutrition programs at Jewish Family & Children's Service of Greater Boston, and sit on the board of the Massachusetts Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. 

Healthy living does not have to be stressful! I look forward to guiding you on your journey toward a well-nourished life.
