Growing up a picky eater who survived on every chicken nugget and tender I could find, I never thought my path would lead me to a career in nutrition. I find that many of my clients worry that “all dietitians eat perfectly” and may feel hesitant to share their struggles believing they will be judged or that they should “know better”.

Well, I’m here to say that’s just not the case. First, spoiler alert, there is no perfect eating! We all have a journey to take when it comes to finding a maintainable and enjoyable way to take care of ourselves. Using a blend of compassion, humor, individualized care, and evidence-based recommendations, I am grateful to support my clients as they take their journey to true wellness.

Best thing about being a non-diet dietitian

There are so many things to love, but one of the best is witnessing my clients' self-confidence and zest for life grow. It's a wonderful part of the process to watch clients strengthen their intuition and recover from a painful relationship with food that so many people find themselves in.


Favorite food

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, but specifically the green kind.

I discovered my passion for nutrition and wellness while cooking with my family, taking culinary courses, and participating in athletics. I believe that all foods can nourish the body when in balance, and I’ve passionately dedicated my career to helping others find peace and enjoyment in their relationship with food.

My work philosophy is to create a safe space for you to bravely uncover, explore, and heal food and body concerns. Finding balance in your self-care practices by allowing the body to communicate what it needs for rest, energy, and movement, while also giving unconditional permission to enjoy a variety of foods. Balance may also require the integration of the biological, psychological, and social experiences of nourishment. The client, you, are the expert on your body!

Best thing about being a non-diet dietitian

I love to see clients flourish as they get the time, space, and rest needed to really explore their relationship with food and body, without the diet timelines and judgement.


Favorite food

I love a good charcuterie board, especially with a wide selection of cheese.

Staff Dietitian

From being raised in a Portuguese household, to participating in countless softball tournaments and sports endeavors, I grew up in a space where food was celebrated and shared among family and friends. After discovering the nutrition and dietetics career path, I knew I wanted to become a dietitian to help others find the same joy in food and movement.

I’ve worked with patients and clients in many different settings- from the ICU, to oncology clinics, to general outpatient nutrition. But no matter the setting, I’m always the most excited to help clients explore and heal their relationship with food, body, and exercise in a fun and evidenced-based way, while supporting their individual needs!

Best thing about being a non-diet dietitian

It is so fulfilling to help guide my clients towards a better relationship with food and body, then watching them get back the time and energy to spend on pursuing dreams, enriching relationships, and focusing on parts of their life they otherwise wouldn’t have had time for.


Favorite food

French fries, especially hand-cut or Belgian style, with lots of ketchup or other fun sauces and dips!
