After graduating from Middlebury College, I was awarded a Thomas J. Watson Traveling Fellowship and enjoyed a year abroad before earning a Master of Science degree from Columbia University’s Institute of Human Nutrition, College of Physicians and Surgeons. I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and have worked in hospital, clinic, and private settings with groups and individuals. I am a certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and love to train teens and adults. I created the “Bod Squad,” a fitness and nutrition empowerment program for teen girls as well as “Talk the Walk” an outdoor fitness and group counseling program for women.
In addition to private nutrition therapy and personal training, I have appeared in print and on television. I have lectured widely to health professionals, to faculty and students in area schools and colleges, to corporate conferences, and community groups throughout the northeast, including the Harvard / Tufts Medical School conference on Obesity and Eating Disorders. I am a member of the American Dietetic Association (ADA), the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), the Westchester and Rockland Dietetic Association, and the following ADA subgroups: Sports, Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutritionists, Weight Management, and Behavioral Health Nutrition.
In my spare time I love to hang out with my family being physically active, cooking, traveling, and volunteering. I am the Founder and Executive Director of Campus Bound Scholars Inc, a registered 501(c)(3) non profit that mentors and supports Westchester high school graduates who are first in their family to attend college so they successfully transition to the world of higher education.
