An expert who understands special nutrition needs and demands of busy lives
A licensed Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), I started as a hospital Pediatric Nurse, have been a School Nurse, an instructor and a primary health care provider. In addition to FNP and RDN, I hold Pediatric RN and Certified Specialist in Obesity and Weight Management (CSOWM) board certifications, which represent all age groups.
There are many health conditions people would like to avoid developing, or better manage if already affected. For people of any age who want friendly, top-notch diet and lifestyle expertise, Alaska Elite Nutrition offers personalized, practical strategies from a knowledgeable and experienced medical professional. Together we’ll explore how to create a healthy, appealing and manageable eating plan that supports your nutritional needs, health, and performance.
I fell in love with helping people use diet and lifestyle changes to improve their health and quality of life. It has been so rewarding to see people bring lab results into normal ranges again, or reduce prescription medications. It is positively thrilling to hear how people achieved goals they hadn’t been able to accomplish in many years (or ever in their life) such as completing a running or bike race, being able to play more with children or grandchildren, or travel comfortably. AEN works with individuals, families, teams and other groups for providing science-based nutrition for targeting and achieving health and wellness goals. Alaska Elite Nutrition offers reliable simple ways to produce an appealing, nutritious diet and healthy habits that support optimal results for health conditions and sports performance. Current credible science is the basis for all counseling and coaching.
Nutrition for sports performance is an area I’m passionate about, because too many young (and not so young) athletes are not always accessing safe information. I want to be your approachable credible resource.
Out of necessity, I also became an expert in food allergies/intolerances, and love to help people work around these to develop a delicious healthy balanced diet without having to be a slave to the kitchen or multiple menus at the same meal.
I’m a credentialed nutrition expert committed to helping adults, kids, families, teams and groups learn how to build healthy diets that meet their current health and wellness needs. My work focuses on helping people discover foods they love that can provide complete nutrition. I believe in a collaborative approach when helping clients reach their goals.
