I graduated from Penn State in 1994 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Nutrition. I then went to graduate school in Boston where I was working on my MEd in Nutrition, completed my Dietetic Internship and became a Registered Dietitian.
After my internship I took a job doing osteoporosis research which sideswiped me into a 15 year career in the pharmaceutical/biotech world. During that time, I saw first hand how important the role of food plays in our daily lives and how what we eat can contribute to many different diseases. Most of my 15 years in pharma/biotech I worked with immunology products (vaccines & a monoclonal antibody therapy for Psoriasis) The last two years in Biotech, I worked in oncology. After several “ah-ha” moments, I knew it was time to follow my heart and go back to working in preventative healthcare, Nutrition.
I own & work full time as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN)/Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist(LDN) in Private Practice in Doylestown, PA. I also have other Dietitians working with me to make Bucks County a healthier community. My specialties include, Celiac Disease and auto-immune diseases, food allergies & intolerances, ADHD and gastro-intestinal disorders. I also enjoy helping kids, adolescents and adults with their weight management goals!
I became extremely interested in food intolerances when my own son presented with some unexplained neurologic/respiratory symptoms. After eliminating several culprit foods and additives, his symptoms diminished! We have been living gluten free at our house for two+ years. My nephew also has Celiac disease. This personal connection to the disease helps me help others with gluten issues. I love helping people figure out what TO eat vs just telling them what not to eat.
When I’m not working, I just love having everyday fun with 3 kids, husband and two crazy puppies Betty & Jersey. I love being outdoors, gardening, Yoga, writing, taking pictures, baking, social networking, meeting new people and trying new things. I love living in beautiful Bucks County, PA and especially in the Fall!
