Ask anyone about their eating habits, or about weight loss and they will tell you they know what to do and what they should eat. Yet, 65% of our population are well fed but not well nourished. Most Americans are over weight, have low energy and other health concerns.

The answer to how to be nourished, to lose weight, to decrease the risk of cancer or other diseases, is to apply the correct nutritional principles that work for the individual. Every body is unique.

I feel my role as a dietitian is to educate clients on how to nourish their bodies and to help them apply the tools they learn to their lives. This is why I meet with them on an individual basis, and not just generalize for the masses. The program and goals are specific to each individual, and is not a "one size fits all" diet theory.

My goal is to help each client reach their goal and also to educate them on good nutrition as a way of life. Different fad diets will come and go, some with harmful side effects, but learning how to nourish the body will help everyone age more gracefully, help them feel more balanced and have more energy.

I received my BA and Masters in Nutrition at University of Wisconsin at Madison. To be Nationally Registered as a professional dietitian involved 5 years of college and interning in 5 different hospitals. I have been in private practice, providing medical nutritional counseling, for over 30 years, working with a number of medical doctors in Wisconsin, Los Gatos, CA and Saratoga, CA.
