- Integrative Medicine
My drive and passion to help others through food and nutrition stemmed from my own journey growing up in an environment that was largely populated with fast food and living amongst family that were emotional eaters. Struggling with feeling fatigue, having poor digestion and being overweight, I resolved to follow one fad diet after another. After becoming increasingly frustrated with failed attempts at weight loss and dieting all together, I was determined to understand the body and improve my health and wellbeing by enrolling in Hunter College's Nutrition and Food Science program. After being immersed in clinical institutions, I realized that I not only wanted to understand the value of treatment but even more so the power of prevention. I then enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Today my mission is to help reduce and prevent the genetic predisposition of disease and disorder that is plaguing our future generations due to poor dietary choices and lifestyle habits. By providing medical nutrition therapy and approaching all patient encounters holistically, I endeavor to reach each individual's objective(s) by taking into account their eating habits and lifestyle and creating small realistic goals together.
