I have always enjoyed food because it’s a thing that brings people together. Eating is something people do multiple times a day but many don’t make the best decisions when it comes to their diet.  This is the reason that I chose to become a Registered Dietitian. I wanted to help teach people to make better choices when it comes to mealtime. It’s always been fascinating to me how you can improve your health by making small changes in your diet.

I came to Mountain Park to help our community with prevention. Here we treat the whole patient and to me, it means looking ahead, discussing how to eliminate risk factors and planning for a healthy future.

When I’m not at work I spend time with my family and friends. I also enjoy quiet activities like painting and reading, especially young adult fiction. One thing that I hope to do one day is start a blog. I love to write, and if I wasn’t a RD I would have become a journalist or a writer.
