Take control of your health
Here’s how I can help
Hello and welcome!
I’m a Los Angeles-based registered dietitian nutritionist. I love helping people discover and maintain a healthful diet and lifestyle that can not only prevent disease, but also promote a happy mind, body and spirit. I am passionate about getting to know my clients well and offering them personalized insight and advice to help them develop their own healthy habits.
My story. My love for food and nutrition is rooted by my family’s experience adapting our diet after my brother was first diagnosed with a condition called gout. No one really told us much about nutrition nor did we have the understanding of its significant relationship to health at this point. After the diagnosis, we were given a handout on foods to eat and foods to avoid. While it was somewhat helpful to have a guide, it mostly felt like a list of do’s and don’t’s. The frustrating part was we still lacked understanding of food’s role in the body. How does this food affect gout, but not the other? How often can we have this food? Do we have to avoid it forever? What foods help prevent gout attacks? We had so many questions! This experience proved to be a challenge but it created awareness of the importance of nutrition. Though I was only an elementary school kid at this time, I desired to help my family further understand the relationship between food and health. Later, I took a general nutrition course in college and it further reinforced my interest in the subject. My fascination with the human body and nutrition led me to pursue a career as a dietitian.
My training and education. I have been a part of the health and wellness industry since 2014. I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Biology from University of California, San Diego and a Master’s in Nutritional Science (MS) from California State University, Los Angeles. I then went on to complete a 1200-hour accredited dietetic internship through Oakwood University. I am specially certified in nutrition support (CNSC – Certified Nutrition Support Clinician) and ServSafe Manager Food Safety.
In my spare time, I love to cook, spend time with my family and friends, travel, try new foods, read and do arts and craft.
