- Self-EmployedRegistered Dietitian, Wellness Coach
I received my clinical dietetic training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and went on to become a Registered and Licensed Dietitian. I also am a Certified Specialist in Weight Management as well as a Board Certified Specialist in Pediatric Nutrition through the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
I began my career in nutrition at Children's Medical Center Dallas where I worked for 5 years in clinical pediatrics. I then started my own dream business – a private practice seeing both adult and pediatric patients with a focus on family. My private practice is located in Plano, Texas.
I received the Texas Dietetic Association Media Award in 2011 and the prestigious American Dietetic Association Emerging Leader Award in 2010.
I am very active in media communications and initiatives surrounding the promotion of healthy family lifestyles. I currently am a national spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association) in the Dallas media market. I also am the Communications Director At-Large for the Texas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
