Title: Sports Dietitian
Education: M.S. in Exercise Physiology and Sports Nutrition from Florida State University, and pursuing MBA at Wagner College
I started my career as a clinical dietitian in the acute care setting. After almost two years, my chance to enter the sports nutrition world presented itself and led me to move to New York, where I recently created and managed the sports nutrition program at Wagner College in Staten Island. At Wagner, I have been a resource for all twenty-two varsity teams. There, I provided them with individual nutrition education, pre- and post-workout snacks and shakes, and counseling. I helped athletes with eating disorders, using a multidisciplinary approach to recovery. I also worked with the food service company on campus to help optimally fuel our student-athletes, and served as a strength coach.
With my experience as a professional and collegiate volleyball player and my diverse professional and academic background, I believe in a holistic approach to fitness, wellness and nutrition. I value science-based nutrition education as a precious tool to empower clients in finding their own way to reach performance and health goals.
