I received my degree in nutrition and dietetics from the University of Illinois and have been a registered dietitian since 1996. I started treating those with eating disorders in 1998 while working at Linden Oaks Hospital in Naperville, IL. After moving to Texas in 2007, I opened my private practice, Woodlands Nutrition LLC. While in practice I helped develop the nutrition program at the Woodlands Eating Disorders Center. This stellar program is now a part of Eating Recovery Center in The Woodlands, TX.
My extensive experience in eating disorders led me to develop the food and nutrition curriculum at the center. After three years as the lead RD at ERC The Woodlands, I am returning to private practice to better serve the Woodlands/Houston community. I specialize in treating complex eating disorder clients. I also enjoy working with those needing guidance for medical nutrition therapy including a weight neutral approach to health, family nutrition and GI disorders.
I am active in the eating disorder field by being a member of the International Federation of Eating Disorder Dietitians, the International Association of Eating Disorder Professions (IAEDP), and president-elect for the Houston Eating Disorder Specialists group. I am also in the process of obtaining my certification in eating disorders as a registered dietitian (CEDRD) which is a prestigious certification for those in the field of eating disorders.
I have been married for over 20 years and have two children who keep me busy. I love running, yoga, traveling and spending time with my family.
