With over 14 years of experience in the Nutrition & Wellness field, I have specialized in kidney disease & diabetes. I have both Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Nutrition Science from Brooklyn College and completed my Dietetic Internship at LIU. I I've always enjoyed being engaged with the RD community and renal community. Past leadership positions include President of the Long Island Dietetic Association, Chair of the Greater NY Council on Renal Nutrition, and currently Vice-president of For Kidney Sake, inc. My passion is to help dietitians extend their reach to the community and there is no area that needs more help than the CKD population. I've taken my lumps in the private practice and insurance world and am excited to share what I've learned to save you time and many headaches as you start your practice or streamline your already growing business.
