Inspired at an early age to learn as much as I could about healthy living, I completed my BS in Dietetics and Nutrition from the University of Central Missouri. I later completed the Missouri Department of Health Dietetic Internship. I have been working as a Dietitian / Lactation Consultant for nearly 10 years in a community health center where I help families improve their overall nutrition status for optimal health.
I'm a mom of 3 active children. Like many parents, I am challenged to put healthy and tasty food on the table at the end of each work day, have a peaceful meal, and keep myself fit a midst all of our evening activities. It can be overwhelming, even for a family dietitian. By planning ahead and following a few basic food rules, I am able to do all of this on most days. With a wealth of dietetic practice experience coupled with my mom experience, I can help you problem solve your own barriers to healthy eating.
