Her experience in providing medical nutrition therapy and guidance to thousands of individuals of all ages over the years, has allowed her to recognize effective nutritional strategies to utilize when assisting individuals in meeting health goals.

She is thrilled to lead the PreviMedica team to extend this opportunity for optimal nutrition to individuals all over the country.
