I am a full time clinical registered dietitian and I am expanding my reach through my private practice.
Big goals on are on the horizon!
If I have free time you'll find me cooking, reading (historical fiction is my favorite), or outside with my husband and puppies going on adventures. I would love to have a large garden but I'm still learning. Insight is appreciated!
I love meeting people where they are and walking alongside them as they discover new and healthy ways of cooking, creating life long habits, and finding joy in their success.
My husband and I had our first date at a coffee shop in Dallas, TX. We both love coffee and at some point he called me 'Coffee Bean' and the nickname stuck!
My twin sister has Cerebral Palsy and uses a wheelchair. (Shout out to those that know what twin-to-twin transfusion is!) I have grown up around individuals with various special needs my whole life. As we spent so much time in hospitals and doctor offices, I am very comfortable in the clinical setting.
I have POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) a form of Dysautonomia, and have had two heart surgeries. GI issues arise when I'm in a flair.
I have first hand experience in tough health situations and enjoy helping those who want to help themselves.
