Do you have a moment when you knew what you wanted to be when you grew up?
I knew my life entailed a career of service as a diabetic dietitian on a specific day when I was a senior in high school.
Nearly 20 years ago, on 2/5/02, I stared at myself in the mirror with tears coming down my face like a waterfall as I held it together all day trying to be strong for my mom. My older siblings were at college while I felt like I needed to be a backbone for the family and remain optimistic.
I spent the earlier 10 hours unexpectedly sitting at OSU Medical Center as my dad was undergoing a double organ transplant as a result of what type 1 diabetes did to his body and health.
Even though I was fighting the same disease since second grade, his health stance is what has driven me to do everything possible to learn the most, articulate the best, and help as many people as possible to use nutrition in a holistic way to have exceptional health.
On February 5th, 2002, a fire was lit within me and today it only burns brighter to become an outspoken dietitian preventing any daughter, father, and anyone in-between from ever being in this same position.
Having a chronic disease can be tough, but it shapes us into the heroes we are.
I know in my soul, I was meant to have type 1 diabetes so I can better help YOU.
- In 2012, I opened my private practice, helping people in large and 1:1 settings.
- I conduct presentations to large and small companies addressing practical ways for people to feel their best, saving time, energy, and costs related to health.
- On an individual scale, I provides virtual counseling providing practical solutions & personalized nutrition.
