Whether you’re vegan for your health, the animals, or the environment, a dietitian can help
Hello! I am a registered dietitian based in Dallas, Texas with a Master’s degree in Nutrition and Metabolism. I’ve been vegan since 2014 and have picked up many helpful tips and tricks along the way!
While I was initially drawn to a vegan diet for its health benefits, I have also come to love the benefits it has for animal welfare and the environment. Whether you’ve been vegan for a while or are just now considering the transition, I would love to help you meet your health and nutrition goals!
I help people make sustainable lifestyle changes that are personalized to their specific needs, rather than offering cookie-cutter meal plans or basing my recommendations solely on calorie counting.
I do this by educating my clients on how to create balanced plant-based meals that fit with their dietary preferences and lifestyle.
My approach is to help you include as many whole plant-based foods as possible while also taking your budget, schedule, and health goals into consideration. I focus on food first, and recommend supplements only when necessary.
Contrary to popular belief, it’s entirely possible to thrive on a vegan diet. I’d love to show you how!
Registered Dietitians are nutrition experts. Dietitians must complete coursework in biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, physiology, biochemistry, and metabolism, complete a 1200+ hour supervised internship in multiple areas of concentration in dietetics, pass a national registration exam, and complete 75 hours of continuing education every 5 years.
I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Nutrition & Dietetics from the University of Texas at Austin and completed my dietetic internship and Master's Degree in Nutrition & Metabolism at the University of Texas Medical Branch.
My career began as a clinical dietitian in hospitals around Dallas, Texas assessing and recommending nutrition interventions for patients with a variety of acute conditions. I enjoyed caring for patients, but wanted to make a difference in people's everyday lives, not just in the hospital.
Next, I transitioned into working as a research dietitian at MD Anderson Cancer Center in the Department of Pediatrics Research. I had the privilege of implementing behavioral research studies in pediatric and young adult cancer patients and survivors, trying to find effective ways to improve their nutritional status, physical functioning, and overall quality of life.
Now, I've shifted my focus to helping the vegan community!
