About Me

I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes care and education specialist, and performance nutrition specialist at Bellin Health. I have over 8 years of experience working with a variety of different clients. My specialty is providing information and evidence-based nutrition counseling to enhance exercise performance and overall health. I chose a career in dietetics because of my personal journey with nutrition and fitness as a teenager. In my spare time, I enjoy participating in weight training, biking, and hiking. I believe focusing on simple, sustainable changes is key to long-term success. I pride myself on individualizing nutrition recommendations based on each client’s lifestyle, goals, and food preferences.
