By day your average grocery store dietitian. By night an even more average wife, yet an avid cook! I promise, my life definitely sounds more interesting in person than it does on paper, yet here I am trying to prove that wrong. How am I doing so far?
I was born in New York, received a bachelor degree in biology, and found passion for nutrition shortly after, in that order. This led me to get my masters in Human Nutrition. Now people treat me as a foodie know it all, based in part on my education and passion, and I wouldn’t change that for the world.
With all the learning I did regarding food, I stumbled upon the world of veganism. As a science nerd, I made it a point to look at this method of eating critically, and what I found I definitely liked. It’s hard to say no to a lifestyle that has a multitude of benefits to your health, the planet, and animals. By no means am I a stereotypical tree huger, but I do want them to continue existing, and I feel that my current lifestyle can help that happen. The challenge, with anything, is getting people to see it my way.
As a vegan dietitian, I thought the most obvious place to work would be the grocery store, where I deal with people who are the most skeptical against a plant-based diet. I work tirelessly to make this lifestyle more inviting or at the very least, make people think that plants aren’t terrible. I believe that perfection is a myth, and strive to make people comfortable with the idea that just a little effort goes a long way to bettering yourself and your environment.
