Welcome to Nutrition Care of Rochester! I am on a mission to help change our children’s future by starting with you.
I am a Registered and Certified Dietitian Nutritionist with a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition, and hold a Certificate in Childhood and Adolescent Weight Management. A member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, New York State Association of Nutrition and Dietetics, Genesee Dietetic Association, Dietitians in Integrative and Functional Medicine dietetic practice group (DPG), Pediatric Nutrition DPG, Women’s Health DPG, Behavioral Health DPG, and Nutrition Entrepreneurs DPG. In addition, I am a Certified Lactation Counselor and a Breastfeeding USA breastfeeding counselor candidate, but most importantly I am a wife to a wonderfully understanding, hardworking, and selfless man and a mom to two toddlers who are eating machines!
I have years of experience working with children and their parents. Many of these children have autism, intellectual disabilities, ADHD, food allergies or sensitivities, selective eating, and some have weight concerns. While some of these children can’t be cured with a diet, the diet that child was raised on does have a direct effect on their physical and behavioral health. Most importantly, the diet the child was raised on is the one they just expect and the one that they crave; whether that is healthy or unhealthy food. My goal is to educate parents on nutrition and to help them turn their lives around, before they even have children. If you want to prevent disease, promote a long and healthy life, and evade poor mealtime behaviors, then nutrition education is what you need.
