My Story

Food and cooking have always played a central role in my life. My fondest memories as a child are of large Sunday meals at my grandmother's house, surrounded by extended family. Meals would last for hours as we lingered over food from everyone's garden. Everything was homemade, and this is how I learned to cook. I used my cooking skills to pay my way through college and into my first job. Even as a clinical dietitian, I could not stay away from the kitchen. I was placed in charge of a very large staff and an even bigger kitchen, serving thousands of patients and personnel each day. 


Though I found success and achieved professional goals through hard work, I struggled personally with depression, migraines, eczema, and psoriasis. At one point, my hands became so stiff, I was referred to a rheumatologist who warned me of psoriatic arthritis - a debilitating autoimmune disease that permanently damages the joints. I missed work regularly due to my migraines. I was stuck in a cycle and had tried everything recommended by my doctor. I had no energy, was depressed, and felt the medical community had failed me - and even worse, as I had failed myself. 

After years of study, working with clients as a registered dietitian, and my personal health journey, this is what I know: food is medicine. What you eat directly affects your skin, immune system, moods, inflammation, hormones, energy, and all your bodily systems! I can show you how food is mood, moving a little will change your life, and everything else follows. By changing my diet and making lifelong lifestyle changes, I have been able to optimize my energy, immunity, and skin, and keep my depression at bay.
