"Nutritional health involves physiological, psychological, emotional, spiritual and financial aspects. All of these play a role in nutritional well-being. I use the latest science, coupled with individual needs to guide people on their journey towards optimal nutritional health. Communicating the 'scientific-why' behind nutritional decisions empowers individuals to make more healthful decisions based on their own unique set of circumstances."
"The science of nutrition is complex and ever changing. Plus, the availability of nutrition information is overwhelming. My ability to interpret, integrate and communicate the tsunami of nutrition information into practical easy-to-understand solutions is something I excel at and thoroughly enjoy."
