I completed my post-graduate studies in Nutrition Education at Bauman College in Berkeley, CA. While an undergraduate at Duke University, I studied French cooking in Montpellier, France, continuing an early fascination with food. In 1996, I began working at the American Institute of Wine & Food in San Francisco; I helped create and manage projects ranging from ingredient tastings to a children’s garden project. Subsequently, I spent seven years working for Niman Ranch, the leading brand in the sustainable meat industry. As a National Retail Sales manager, I worked closely with customers such as Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. I am also the mother of a two well-fed boys, ages seven and nine.
In addition to working with families and individuals, I have spoken to hundreds of people in community talks, coached moms through a recurring six-week workshop on nutrition and wellness, and taught cooking classes to adults and pre-schoolers.
I am also a member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals, Weston A. Price Foundation, and Bay Area Family Wellness, a collective of Bay Area health care professionals dedicated to providing families with the tools and services they need to improve all aspects of their health and wellness.
My goal is to help each of my clients learn to enjoy delicious, nourishing foods that contribute to their sense of overall well-being.
