I’m a longtime food enthusiast. I realized later that my interest was unique: most 10-year-olds don’t pore over the Betty Crocker Cookbook for a slumber party menu. I served ice cream-stuffed cantaloupe. I also won a blue ribbon at the Fair for my brownies. Unfortunately, I no longer have the recipe, but do have the ribbon. As a registered dietitian nutritionist, I show people how food can be enjoyed and that healthful eating is pleasurable—all on the same fork. I believe having good food in your life makes your life better. I want delicious food that helps me LiveBest by nourishing body and mind. If you want that too, you’re in the right spot.I know most people will never, ever see a dietitian, but many are hungry for nutrition advice. You’ve got an expert at your fingertips! Live smarter and pass the word. I enjoy discovering local foods and am always on the lookout for my next best bite. I’ve visited more than 25 countries and 40 states. I led tours to Italy where I taught the art of ordering and eating gelato. Hazelnut is my favorite flavor. I am an adventurous beginning knitter, an explorer in the kitchen, a voracious reader, and an over-active planner.
