I am a registered and licensed dietitian and am a certified specialist in pediatrics. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences, Food and Nutrition, Dietetics Option, with a minor in psychology from the University of Idaho in 2012 where I graduated Cum Laude.
After graduating from college, I spent the next 9 years working at St. Luke’s hospital. I spent most of my time helping pediatric patients in the primary field of eating disorders and also spent significant time working as the dietitian for the Children’s Integrative Medicine Clinic. Seeing a need for additional resources in our community, I left the hospital to start my own private practice in late 2021.
I spend a lot of my free time in my kitchen creating new dishes and experimenting with food. I love to eat and experience food to the fullest (pun intended). Gardening feeds my soul; I enjoy getting to plant seeds and watching them grow. Traveling is one of my favorite hobbies as well and guess what I enjoy most about traveling? The food! I’m an avid reader (or at least an avid Audible listener) and my family and I love to spend time in the mountains camping, going for drives, or just taking walks.
I am a registered dietitian, and my passion is helping individuals find food freedom and feel their best. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition, Dietetics and Food Sciences at Utah State University in 2022. It was during my undergraduate where I first studied Intuitive Eating and different strategies on how to best help those struggling with eating disorders. Since then, it has become a passion of mine to help this population.
After graduating college, I was able to complete an eight-month internship program where I had the opportunity to work with various clients. During those eight months I interned at a residential eating disorder treatment facility, long-term care facility, inpatient hospital, and with the Women, Infant Children program (WIC).
Outside of being a dietitian, I love being active and spending time with my husband and dog. On the weekends you will likely see us out exploring the beauty of Idaho or trying the fun new restaurant in town.
