My Bio
I have over 20 years of experience as a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist. I'm a Certified LEAP Therapist, specializing in food sensitivities, a Certified Culinary Nutrition Expert and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner helping clients heal from the inside out. My Clinical training was done at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and I received my BS Degree in Nutrition from California State Polytechnic University Pomona. I'm a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.  In addition, I completed culinary training through the United States Personal Chef Association and the Academy of Culinary Nutrition.
Working as a Corporate Dietitian for two major supermarket chains for several years, I developed a very successful nutrition education program for consumers.
I have extensive experience in nutrition counseling, public speaking and writing and have made numerous media appearances on major television stations in California and Nevada. 
Combining my love of cooking and passion for food, I owned a personal chef business where I created delicious, healthy meals for busy families, couples, and executives. I also have several years of experience teaching healthy cooking classes.
