As a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator in pediatrics, I strongly value the impact nutrition has on a child’s health and well-being. I aim to create an open and honest environment that emphasizes child involvement. I focus on an individualized approach to address specialized nutritional needs and create sustainable nutrition plans.
