Hello! Thank you for taking the time to learn about SO Nutritious. As the founder of SO Nutritious, I would like to give you a little background about myself.
I work as a Registered Dietitian because nutrition, health and wellness are things I am passionate about. My interest grew over time, mostly as an adult. I initially earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration- Finance and worked for several years in the corporate financial world. I then left my career in finance to pursue my growing passion in nutrition and wellness. I returned to college and graduated from Montclair State University Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Food Science- Dietetics. Immediately afterwards, I completed my dietetic internship with Iowa State University and became a Registered Dietitian. Making a career change was not easy, however it has proved to be extremely rewarding ever since. I believe it is never too late to make changes in your life- whether it is your career, lifestyle, or your health.
I have a strong interest and background in GI and cardiac nutrition. If you have IBD, IBS, diverticulitis, food allergies/intolerance, or you often get an upset stomach, I can help! I can also help you improve your cholesterol, blood pressure, and reduce risk for further cardiovascular disease.
With over 10 years experience as an RD, I've worked with a variety of disease stages and life circumstances for all ages. I personally know what it is like to have food intolerances, to choose or avoid certain foods in order to benefit my overall health and how I feel. These combined personal and professional experiences have given me so much knowledge and insight into the personal struggles many of us have faced when incorporating healthy eating into our everyday lives.
As a mother to two young children I can relate to the struggles many parents experience when trying to make the best food choices for their families. I can offer you solutions to the feeding problems you may be having with your children.
I believe that nutrition is personal- this is why what works for one person doesn’t always work for the next. I use a personalized and integrative approach to help my clients examine their lives and eating habits to help promote wellness and health. At SO Nutritious, I will work with you to set goals. Together we will establish realistic goals and make changes that are aligned with your pace and your level of readiness. Do you have a specific medical diagnosis that you need help managing via diet? Do you want to lose weight, gain energy, or simply learn how to be more healthful? Do you need help learning what to feed your family? I can help! Call or email to schedule an appointment with me today. I look forward to working with you.
