I am a registered dietitian and graduate of the University of Missouri Coordinated Program in Dietetics. I hold my Bachelor's of science in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, and my Master's of science in Dietetics.
I am from Wheaton, a suburb just outside of Chicago. From my senior year of high school, I knew I wanted to study nutrition and I knew I wanted to work with people and their relationship with food and their body. That was an unwavering desire, and it turned out to be a life passion.
I came back to Chicago after graduation and began working at a residential treatment facility. I am currently working with a variety of clients, ranging from those struggling with substance use disorders to folks struggling with all types of eating disorders. I am also working towards getting my CEDRD credential. Unsure what that is? Look to the left of this page and slightly down; Sarah is supervising me!
My passion for working with people suffering from eating disorders is crystal clear. I have a passion for social justice and believe that, by healing our relationship with our bodies and food, we can change our world.
I am currently licensed to work with clients in Illinois.

Member of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (iaedp), Heartland chapterPrior to being a dietitian, I was a student member of this iaedp. I am now an active member as a dietitian!
