I can answer questions on a variety of nutrition-related subjects. I specialize in dietary management to prevent chronic disease and promote wellness for those with conditions like diabetes, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and heart disease. I can also respond to questions regarding USDA dietary guidelines, pediatric nutrition needs, potential causes of undesired weight gain or loss, nutrition during pregnancy or postpartum, and making simple but effective dietary changes (swaps, improvements, etc.). I can answer some limited questions regarding growing foods at home for summer and fall nutrition, as well as making homemade baby food. Finally, I can answer questions regarding food substitutions, allergies, and recipe modification for improved nutrition.
I am a Certified Health Education Specialist and freelance health and wellness writer. I have written dozens of research-based articles on the above topics over the past several years for a variety of sites (NaturalNews.com, Patch.com, DiabetesDaily.com, etc.). In addition, I have a Masters in Biology and experience as a nutrition counselor for the Women, Infants, and Children program. I am familiar with disease-specific dietary needs because of time with a Newborn Screening program and self-guided research. I am in-progress on a PhD in Health Services Management and Policy, and I have a strong personal interest in nutrition-related reading and lifestyle changes.
