Three fun facts about me:
1. If I weren’t a dietitian, I’d be working for a farm sanctuary or an animal rescue .
2. Hebrew is my first language. Just don’t ask me to translate a complicated article though, בסדר?
3. I add mint leaves to just about everything, including my morning coffee.
Born in Tel Aviv and raised in Northern California, I developed an interest in nutrition and health at a young age. My mom, a vegetarian since age 18, taught my sister and me how food impacts our health (and how to pack our school lunches).
After graduating from the University of California, San Diego, I traveled abroad, settling in Sydney, Australia, for four years. With its delicate (and breathtakingly beautiful) ecosystem, Australia showed me how our food choices shape the environment and impact animal welfare. I returned to California to pursue a degree in nutrition and dietetics. After graduating with a Master's in Public Health from Loma Linda University in 2013, I moved to Chicago, where I began my career as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. I started in a clinical setting, seeing patients, and managing a 12-week weight management program.
In 2015, I left to establish a nutrition and well-being consultancy. I primarily partner with organizations to cultivate a culture grounded in well-being through on-site nutrition services. I also work with a subset of private weight management clients, helping them navigate nutrition while empowering them to develop healthy habits.
While I’m passionate about people and well-being, I’m all about animals. Outside of the office, you can find me exploring the city with my Aussie mix, Dexter, running (very slowly) lakeside or volunteering with the local shelter, the Anti-Cruelty Society.
Thanks for stopping by, and looking forward to hearing from you soon!
