I have been a registered dietitian for over 35 years and a certified diabetes care and education specialist for over 25 yrs, working in inpatient and outpatient hospital settings in the areas of Diabetes, Medical Nutrition Therapy and Bariatric Nutrition. I love to learn and teach so over the years after completing my masters in nutrition at New York University, I have pursued additional certifications in diabetes education, adult weight management, diabetes prevention and lifestyle, insulin therapy, Continuous Glucose Monitoring, insulin pump therapy, vegetarian nutrition, fertility & prenatal nutrition and basic culinary nutrition. My passion for teaching stems from teaching Sunday school in church when I was a teenager to leading a young ladies bible study presently. My motto with my clients are to empathize, educate and empower them in managing their health through nutrition, fitness and behavior modification.
I was diagnosed with PCOS in my early 20’s and had Gestational diabetes with all 3 of my children. My first child was an intentional gift from the Lord on Christmas day in 1992 after 7 years of marriage where I wanted to continue my PhD after completing my masters in 1991. I had come to the crossroads of my life and the Lord guided me towards starting a family over higher education and career advancement. I struggled with conceiving my second child so I aptly named him Zachary which means “God remembered”. When I was stressed about my third pregnancy having to deal with Gestational diabetes and prolonged labor and delivery, my father reminded me that the Lord chose to give me children because he knew I would raise them to accept Christ as their Savior and serve him. I had always wanted 2 boys and a girl which he faithfully delivered as desired and promised. All 3 of my children love the Lord and are blooming for the Lord where he has planted them. As a mother and daughter of my Heavenly Father, I want to carry out his higher purposes for me through my personal experiences and career and spiritual gifts of teaching and encouragement.
