My story: I am a registered dietitian nutritionist, and I have always been fascinated with nutrition and the effects it has on our health. Eleven years ago, I would have never thought that not only would I be eating what we know as “vegan” but also teaching people that whole-food plant-based nutrition is the way to eat to be healthy, and to avoid the need for long term use of medications. As a registered dietitian nutritionist, my training emphasized that we need to include meat, dairy and eggs in our diet.
Eleven years ago, I met a 76 year-old man who appeared to be extremely physically fit. I learned that five years earlier he had been instructed by a nutritionist on how to follow a whole-food plant-based diet. He continued to tell me that over a 6-month period of time he lost 40 pounds of excess weight and was no longer taking blood pressure medication, blood thinner, cholesterol medication or medication for type 2 diabetes. He then wrote on a piece of paper the name of the book, "The China Study,” and suggested I read it…… I did not read it. I still felt based on my traditional nutrition training that vegan/ plant-based was not a healthy way of eating.
Two weeks later I was having a conversation with a business colleague, and the topic of nutrition came up. He said “Read The China Study, it saved my daughter in law’s life. She had breast cancer, and treatment with Whole-Food Plant-Based Nutrition helped to cure it." I bought the book and read it cover to cover (more than once). It made so much sense to me.
Next I watched the documentary "Forks over Knives". It is about the research done by T. Colin Campbell, PhD Nutritionist, the author of the book (The China Study), and about well-known surgeon Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, who treated cardiac patients and successfully reversed heart disease with plant-based nutrition. The documentary was convincing, and I was on board. I wanted to learn more about this, so I decided to take the Whole- Food Plant-Based nutrition course at the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, and obtained the Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate.
It has been more than 11 years now that my husband and I are eating plant-based. Initially, both of us experienced a significant drop in our elevated cholesterol levels to within normal range, so that the doctors no longer wanted us to take a statin.
I have also witnessed health improvements in clients I have worked with including:
Eliminating acid reflux
Reversing Type 2 Diabetes
Reversing high blood pressure
Improving irritable bowel syndrome
Taking off excess weight without feeling deprived.

Helping People Through Personal (Virtual) Plant-Based Nutrition Counseling
I'm passionate about helping people live long and healthy lives, avoid chronic diseases, and eliminate the need for many medications by enjoying a plant-based diet.
I've always been fascinated by the effects of good nutrition on health. After learning the benefits of plant-based nutrition eleven years ago, I completely changed my definition of “healthy foods.”
The Power of Plant-Based Nutrition
Whole foods and common spices can prevent and reverse disease without side effects. Eating a whole-food, plant-based diet has been scientifically proven to prevent and reverse chronic illnesses, including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune disease, and gastrointestinal problems. It is also the diet many athletes choose to achieve maximum performance. Plant- based foods are satisfying, nutrition packed, and taste amazing!
With my help, you can make a lifestyle transition to live longer, be healthy, avoid chronic diseases, and eliminate the need for many medications by enjoying a plant-based diet.

A Healthier You
It helps to work with an experienced nutritionist who specializes in Plant-Based Nutrition. As a health professional, I can coordinate with your physician while you improve your health and reduce or eliminate the need for medications (and their side-effects).
Whatever your current diet and lifestyle is, I carefully evaluate each client's needs, and formulate a personal plan.
Nutrition can be one of the keys to a happier, healthier life. I offer strategic counseling and techniques to help clients achieve a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle by sharing the following information:
1. What eating plant-based really means and why it’s so healthy.
2. How plant-based nutrition can be healthier and more effective than medications when treating many common diseases.

I help people achieve optimum health with food, so they can avoid or eliminate the need for medications and have more energy than ever before.
Healthy plant-based foods can improve health issues related to heart disease (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke, angina), excess weight, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders (ulcerative colitis, crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome) and other chronic diseases.
