I am a Registered Dietitian and a Certified Personal Trainer. I started my career as a Bariatric Dietitian at Tufts Medical Center, where I became an expert in weight management and bariatric surgery. Through that experience, I developed a passion for preventative medicine and nutrition therapy. In 2011, I joined Family Practice Group, P.C. in Arlington, Massachusetts where I worked in a collaborative medical model known as a Patient Center Medical Home. I also co-founded the nonprofit WellnessCampaign.org. Wellness Campaign supports thousands of people who are struggling with their health and weight-related chronic disease. The small-group model generates support and accountability, inspiring people to make long-term changes in how they move, how they eat, and how they live.​ I am also very involved in promoting the dietetic profession with my involvement in the Massachusetts Dietetic Association and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. I was awarded the Young Dietitian of the Year Award from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and served as the President of the Massachusetts Dietetic Association in 2012-2013. I continue to remain very active on various boards for these organizations.​ I received my master’s degree in Nutritional Sciences from The Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, completed my dietetic internship at the Frances Stern Nutrition Program at Tufts Medical Center, received my bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from the University of New Hampshire, and became a Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine.​ I have a passion and love for anything that involves being active and outdoors. Skiing is my go-to activity during the winter; once spring hits out come the golf clubs; and in the summer, I surround myself with family as much as possible, enjoying long days on the beach. I am a total foodie who loves reinventing recipes with my husband in the kitchen and traveling the world to experience new cultures and foods.
