Hi! Welcome to Food Sense Nutrition. I am glad you are here! Likely you are looking for some help with what and how you eat. I think you’ve come to the right place because that is what I LOVE to do! I am passionate about helping people discover the joy and taste of healthy eating. I know some of you think healthy food could never taste good, but I promise you that it can and it will! And all that tasty food can help improve your blood glucose, reduce your cholesterol, eliminate food sensitivities, and much, much more. You just have to get started, and that is why you are here. I’m ready. Are you?

Maybe you noticed above that I come at nutrition with an Integrative and Functional Medicine perspective. What does that mean? All it means is that I’m looking at you as a whole person. I don’t just look at your diagnosis. My job is to understand you as a person and all the contributing factors that make you who you are today. That allows me to better understand what type of diet and health recommendations will likely work best for you, not only in ameliorating your condition but also supporting all the systems in your body. That’s what we mean by “integrative.” It is a whole person approach.

As a Registered Dietitian I work with all sorts of conditions that can be helped with diet. Some of these treat disease, and some of these prevent disease. Have a read through to see if my areas of expertise are what you are looking for.


Do any of these pertain to you? Are you tired of feeling sick and ill? Then let’s work together to find the right diet strategy to get you not only well but full of the energy and vitality you know you possess. Food is extremely powerful. Simply changing what you eat and finding the rights foods for YOU can make a powerful impact on your health and in many cases cure the condition or disease plaguing you.

In some cases, however, certain foods are the enemy. This is often true with migraines, IBS, fibromyalgia and other symptoms related to food sensitivities. If you suspect this may be your problem, let’s talk about strategies to get those problematic foods out of your diet. As a Certified LEAP Therapist I am an expert when it comes to food sensitivity reactions and can guide you on a path to healing and recovery.


Need to drop a few pounds? Recently pregnant or have a picky eater? Have a teen or grandparent who needs some diet advice? Whatever weight you are and whatever life stage you are in, a healthy diet can help prevent a host of health problems and support you in your quest for optimal wellness. Let’s work together to make sure your diet and lifestyle are at their best. As they say, prevention is key, no matter what age you are. Having two young kids myself I know that nutrition is vital at every life stage. It’s never too early (or too late) to get started. For those of you wanting to get pregnant, are pregnant, or have young kids, this can be the BEST time to get nutrition guidance. Don’t put it off!
