Originally from Long Island, New York my passion in nutrition began with athletics at a very young age and continued through college. I have always found the interaction and benefits that food has on the body both fascinating and empowering. For my undergraduate and graduate degrees, I attended Marywood University in Scranton, Pennsylvania. I graduated with both a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics and a Master’s Degree in Sports Nutrition & Exercise Physiology. During my time here in Pennsylvania, I have had the opportunity to gain plenty of experience within various health care centers, schools and athletic facilities, providing nutritional education and consultation. Here at VIVE, my main concentration is in weight loss and sports nutrition, educating and guiding my clients toward healthier food choices and lifestyle changes.
