I have been a dietitian for over 25 years. I graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management and then went on to get my Master's degree in Nutrition at Texas Woman's University in the Texas Medical Center.
I have worked in different types of settings. I started my career as a dietitian in the hospital setting and then went to a clinic setting. In these setting most of my experience was with the adult population, which was mostly weight loss and diabetes education. Then in 2002 I took a job with Early Childhood Intervention were I worked with children with all types of disabilities and nutritional challenges. From my 9 years of experience working with children I learned so much on how we as parents set the stage for a child's eating habits and patterns. In 2011, I decided to leave Early Childhood Intervention and start my own practice.
In 2010, I also went on to take the exam to be a Certified Personal Trainer, I started teaching a Boot Camp and doing personal training.
Currently, I am a Visiting Professor at Texas Southern University teaching Nutrition and food service courses. I enjoy teaching because I feel like I get to pass on my knowledge to the future of a profession that I am truly passionate about.
I really enjoy being physically active and feel it is an important part of staying physically healthy and keeping mentally healthy.
My passion for nutrition came from my own journey. The human body is an incredible system that operates from the food and liquid that we take in. I find joy in sharing my knowledge and understanding of human nut
