Because Your Health Matters Too
I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, a Certified Diabetes Educator, and a Health Made Simple PRO with more than 10 years of experience working as a Dietitian and Health Coach.
I also am a wife, mom of two, self-taught home cook, and all-around food enthusiast!
Growing up, I knew very little about a healthy foods or what a healthy lifestyle looked like. But what I did know is that it was hard to deal with the illnesses, pain, and problems that came from not knowing. I watched loved ones struggle with weight and preventable diseases and over the years I had a fear that I would experience that as well. In college, I decided to go into the field of nutrition for my own self-knowledge. That is where I learned about the power of whole food nutrition. I stopped taking any supplements and was determined to nourish myself and my family with real food.
Over the years, I have spent many years working in various clinical settings. Having worked in both small and large acute care hospitals (having covered just about every unit possible as a clinical RD), as well as in out-patient settings, skilled nursing facilities, in community education programs, and more. During this time, got to know so many AMAZING nurses! I couldn't have done my job as a dietitian without them. But I noticed that these nurses were so busy taking care of everyone and everything else, that they weren't always able to take care of themselves. Working long-hours, skipping meals, eating whatever was quick and easy, and being more likely to turn to quick fix diets or fads. I also have a personal connection with nurses as my my has been a NICU nurse for many years. I realized, nurses are so busy taking care of others, that there wasn't always anyone looking out for them. Which is why I decided to focus on helping the amazing nurses out there who could use some support!
As a part of being able to offer the best to this community, I have only aligned myself with companies that offer simple, whole food solutions, Juice Plus+ and the Living Plate. I only recommend solutions I believe 100% in and use for myself and my own family every day.
