A little more about us...
I am the owner of Radiant Nutrition and a married, working mom of two young adult children. It is from my own experiences over the past 29 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. I am also a Certified Eating Disorder dietitian. I'm currently serving as President for the Knoxville Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and have been awarded the Outstanding Dietitian of the Year and Outstanding Dietetic Educator of the Year.
My work experiences include provision of nutrition therapy for patients in the hospital and outpatient setting. I have also worked in school nutrition programs. For the past several years I have been solely devoted to working with clients who struggle with eating disorders, polycystic ovarian syndrome, weight body image concerns, food sensitivities and hormone issues. I am a former adjunct faculty member at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and work with the athletic department to provide eating disorder services to student athletes.

We fully believe...
Everyone deserves quality, non-discriminatory healthcare.
- Body trust is not a fantasy.
- Peace with food and our bodies is attainable and leads to freedom from diet culture.
- Everyone can change.
In working with our bodies, not against them.
Eating and movement are meant to be enjoyable!
Self-compassion and acceptance are essential parts of healing our relationship with food and our body.
In evidence-based practice and research that is free of weight bias.
Diversity should be recognized and valued.
