About

I started my nutrition career in research in Boston at The Center for the Study of Nutrition and Medicine, specializing in critical care and obesity. My research experiences took me to Germany to study parenteral nutrition in Bone Marrow Transplant patients. Upon returning to the States, I was happy to teach clinical nutrition at the college level and then opened up a Pediatric Private Practice called Nutrition for Kids, Teens and Families, which I ran for 10 years outside of Philadelphia.  At this time, I served as a media spokesperson for Dietz & Watson Inc., in Philadelphia. As my children grew into adulthood, I transitioned into Culinary Nutrition, teaching children and adults cooking classes and holding creative culinary events of all kinds at the Wayne Art Center. In that role, I greatly enjoyed working with companies for whom my team and I created sixty corporate culinary events that taught our clients not only how to cook fresh, delicious meals together, but also how to strengthen their communication and collaborations skills. Today, I want to help people like you optimize digestive nutrition through counseling, cooking and communications- through The Biome Kitchen.
