About me:
I am a registered and licensed dietitian with 11 years experience in medical nutrition counseling. I am certified in Adult Weight Management through the Commission on Dietetic Registration. In addition to one-on-one counseling I have been very active in the celiac community as a support group leader. Additionally, I am an adjunct nutrition professor for Roane State Community and Ellis Colleges, where I teach online nutrition courses for health care professionals as well as for non-health care majors. Through both my counseling and teaching I incorporate the most current medical nutrition information. For the last 5 years I have been in private practice specializing in assisting clients adapt to a healthy lifestyle and to accommodate celiac disease, other gluten intolerant disease as well as additional food allergies and/or intolerances. For my undergraduate studies I graduated from Northern Michigan University with a BS degree in Administrative and Clinical Dietetics. I completed my Masters degree in Nutritional Sciences at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville in 1997. I worked on a Ph.D in Human Ecology with a concentration in Nutrition until 2003 when I started my private practice. I homeschool my daughter, Katarina. We live in a suburb of Knoxville, TN, where we are active in several homeschool support groups. We regularly attend a monthly roller skating class with other homeschoolers. In the summer, Katarina and I spend hours at the World�¢??s Fair Park and at Vols Landing, feeding the ducks and fish, cooling off in the fountains, playing ball, and riding bikes.
