About Jennifer

Before I became a Registered Dietitian, I was enthralled with learning about the body and how it works. At my present job in an outpatient clinic, I regularly instruct groups and individuals in education and counseling settings. It is so much fun to take concepts in textbooks and discuss how the body moves, works and responds. When instructing, I commonly use pictures, graphics, and models to explain concepts. My goal is to make the information come alive and help individuals connect with it so that they own it.

I don't believe that education is simply a formula or memorization but quite organic and progressive. I believe it is important for the instructor or tutor to identify barriers to learning as well as learning style in order to utilize the session time effectively and help the learner build confidence that mastery is possible. I look forward to working with you helping you achieve your educational goals.

My degree in nutritional sciences required extensive coursework in all areas of science relating to the human body. However, my knowledge has further developed in the application of this knowledge. I work in a field that requires me to stay up to date on new research in order to stay relevant and effective.

Cooking is an art and a science. My Nutritional Sciences degree taught me the science of cooking, the overarching concepts that provide a foundational knowledge from which I can experiment and create in the kitchen. I currently teach a monthly cooking class with two of my co-workers and am constantly testing recipes and modifying them to make them tasty, healthy and satisfying.

Nutrition and health is a part of who I am. I do not preach or push, but I do teach the science and concepts so that the information is interesting and captures attention. Whether you need some help with a class or want to gain some confidence in the kitchen, I would welcome the opportunity to work with you. Please feel free to reach out and identify your needs and goals.
