Professional Narrative

For the last 40 years, I have been involved in shaping the profession of Integrative & Functional Nutrition as a clinician for over 30 years, working on nutritionist licensing in over 10 states, on professional boards, training physicians and other clinicians, and as a faculty member in training the next generation of nutritionists. My personal mission is to put a nutritionist into every clinic in the country. When we are there, we change the way that medicine is practiced in that clinic.

Current advisory boards include: Algaecal and the Autism Hope Alliance. Past boards include: the American Nutrition Association (2018-2020;, Secretary of the Accreditation Board for Professional Nutrition Education (2016-2020); Nutrition Advisory Board for the Institute for Functional Medicine (2008-2011); National Association for Nutrition Professionals (2007-2008) and special advisor to the board (2008-2015); International and American Association for Clinical Nutritionists (1992-1993) and more.

I like to spend my time with my husband, friends, and family. I'm an avid reader, land love to travel, cook, and garden.
My philosophy is that lifestyle comes first. If I can try to live my own in somewhat of a balance, then I can model that to others. When I was in college, I learned about systems theory. I see everything as connected and integrated. Being at MUIH is a great fit for who I am and what is important to me.
