Dr. Emma is passionate about helping clients in GI distress feel better through optimal nutrition and lifestyle intervention. Her clinical career started in Boston as a research manager at The Center for the Study of Nutrition and Medicine, specializing in critical care and obesity under the mentorship of the late George Blackburn MD, PhD and Stacey Bell, DSc. Upon moving to Pennsylvania , Dr. Emma taught clinical nutrition at the college level and then opened up a Pediatric Private Practice called Nutrition for Kids, Teens and Families, which she ran for 12 years outside of Philadelphia. At this time, she was also the nutritionist at Dietz & Watson Inc., in Philadelphia. When her children reached high school age, Dr. Emma transitioned into Director of culinary programs and events, organizing children and adults cooking classes and conducting corporate culinary team building events at the Wayne Art Center. Today, Dr. Emma works with clients to help them optimize digestive health via nutrition counseling, cooking programs and education.
