I am a married, working mom of two teen-aged children. It is from my own experiences over the past 25 years that I am convinced proper food intake, behavior change through nutrition therapy and body movement can change lives! This is why I am so passionate to share my knowledge with others.
My education includes receiving my MS and PhD in Nutrition from Texas Woman’s University and my Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from Kansas State University.
My work experiences include providing nutrition therapy for patients in the hospital and outpatient setting, teaching nutrition to children in schools, and managing foodservice operations. Most recently, I've spent over 5 years working with clients who struggle with eating disorders, polycystic ovarian syndrome, weight concerns and body image issues. Aside from my work in private practice, I am an adjunct faculty member at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.
If you are in need of a speaker, I actively participate in public speaking events for businesses, groups and corporations who want to educate their employees or members in the areas of diet, nutrition and emotional and physical health.
