I grew up in a small town called Norwell on the South Shore of Massachusetts. It was a great town to live in and my house was only 10 minutes from the beach!
Growing up it seemed like my mom was ALWAYS in the kitchen. Every night we had home cooked meals and we were always watching cooking shows together. I would have to say that mom was the biggest influence in my life to become a dietitian. She really got me interested in nutrition.
When I got to High School, I found myself more captivated by food labels and was reading all of the ingredients. By the time I was a senior, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in nutrition.
I received my Bachelors of Science from Framingham State University and completed the Coordinated Program in Dietetics. This is an accredited program by the Academy of Dietetics, at the time the acceptance rate was only 50% so it was highly competitive. I then completed 1000 internship hours and sat for a national exam to finally receive my title of Registered Dietitian.
Aside from nutrition, I have also loved being active and saw the value in exercise. From a young age, I played tennis and continued to play throughout High School, and more competitively in college. After college, I took up running and in April of 2018 I completed my first half marathon in Nashville.
I have been a dietitian for almost a decade and have worked mostly in the clinical setting, meaning hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. I genuinely love helping people and tend to always go “above and beyond” for others.
I recently started practicing nutrition counseling at CrossFit Torque and have loved every minute of it! I love being able to help people become the best versions of themselves!
True health and fitness is found in the choices that you make repeatedly every day. I don’t believe in diets, quick fixes or extreme measures for getting results. I believe in the proven consistency of smart choices, discipline, and a healthy balance in all areas and that is what I focus on teaching my clients
Aside from nutrition I love the beach, reading and animals! I recently rescued my dog Ryder in December of 2019 from Alabama.
