I KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE
TOLD THAT MY BODY ISN'T RIGHT.
I never felt like I fit in with the other dietetic students. While they were counting calories and writing down every morsel of food that they ate, I was more interested in thinking about what I was cooking for dinner that night. Or where to find the best chocolate chip cookie. I love food and grew up watching cooking shows on the Food Network. Those chefs were my rock stars! And when I say I love food, I mean all foods. I saw no shame in eating dessert. Case in point, after graduating from college, I started working at the original cupcake bakery, Sprinkles. I often got asked how I could work at a cupcake bakery after studying nutrition for 4 years. My answer? Why wouldn’t I? My philosophy is that all foods fit and no food should be labeled “bad”.
As a child exposed to diet culture at a young age, I know what it feels like to be told that my body isn’t right. I want to help you heal your relationship with food and your body. I believe that all bodies are good bodies and healthy looks different for everyone."
