What is your specialization and why did you choose to work in this area?
Healthy cooking and fitness because both are the key to optimal health. Meals don’t have to be anything fancy and can be made in 30 minutes or less and there are so many options available for exercise now—find one you enjoy and do it often!

What do you find limits an individual’s success when trying to change?
Most want rapid results without having to change much. A true healthy lifestyle requires patience and hard work. Realizing that every day is not going to be perfect and understanding that there is not just ONE way of eating and exercising that is best for everybody. Find what works in your life.
How do you support your client’s goal to keep their intention?
I consistently recognize their efforts and remind them that they are doing the right things. It’s very easy to become doubtful about individual goals when there is so much misinformation out there. Creating confidence and trust within people, along with holding them accountable, is what creates lasting change.
What ongoing support do you provide to create change and success?
Free nutrition services at ShopRite! Anyone can make as many appointments as they need with me at any time. I also provide a “Healthy Recipe of the Week” for shoppers to use along with in-store demonstrations that feature healthy recipes and ideas.
When uncertain how to begin, what is your best advice to start new goals?
Find a registered dietitian that you feel comfortable talking to and sharing your struggles with eating and exercise. They will help you to start setting small goals that you feel confident about and hold you accountable to them.
