here’s some proof…
I’m a master’s level registered dietitian nutritionist, certified eating disorder specialist and certified intuitive eating pro. I’ve spent years learning from some of the best in the industry and I continue to seek professional supervision, attend conferences and stay abreast the most current literature. I also teach professionals, students and RDs how to incorporate intuitive eating and health at every size® approaches into their work and lives.
I’m involved in the nutrition and body positive community. I’m a member of the Association of Size Diversity and Health, International Federation of Eating Disorder Dietitians and the Postpartum Health Alliance. In addition, I’m on the advisory board of RDs for Body Confidence and the president of the CA Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, San Diego District. I contribute to podcasts like New Mommy Media and enjoy speaking to parents, student groups and professionals on the topics of intuitive eating, eating disorders, child feeding, and nutrition and body image during pregnancy and postpartum.
I’m a mom who understands the ups and downs of motherhood. I understand that feeding is more than nutrition and that there is a lot of love and emotion attached to the feeding experience. It doesn’t have to be stressful. It can be joyful. I also understand the ache you may feel when you hope that your children don’t have to feel bad about food and their bodies. We share the same goals. Let’s work together to end the legacy of body shame and dieting in our culture. One mama at a time.
I’m a woman. I live in the same world you do! I am well aware of challenges we face when moving towards a healthy relationship with food and body alike. I have never suffered from and eating disorder, but I have had my share of body image and food challenges. I know how miserable it can be and I know how liberating it feels to leave that behind. Trust me.
