Nutritionist, R.D., L.D.
There is always something new to learn and I embrace this sentiment fully in my practice. I am passionate about my work in the field and enjoy working with clients of all ages, along with their families and support systems.
I received my Dietetics/Nutrition degree from Minnesota State, Mankato and completed my Dietetic Internship through the University of Minnesota Consortium Internship Program.
After working for five years in a Regional Treatment Center with a mental health and chemical dependency focus, I began working in the field of Eating Disorders and Weight Management. I was instrumental in developing the nutrition component at Methodist Hospital’s Eating Disorder Program and have worked in all levels of treatment – inpatient, outpatient, day programming, and residential. I was the program manager of the Anna Westin House, the first residential treatment center in the state and currently consult with several college health services and wellness centers along with her private practice.
Throughout my career, I have worked with various groups and have continued presenting and teaching. I taught the nutrition component for a weight management program for adolescents and for new families in prenatal and parenting classes. Most recently, I taught Principles of Nutrition at a local university.
