About Heather

My name is Heather and I am a Nutritionist working in the Rochester area. I hold my Masters Degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport, and will be sitting for my Certified Nutrition Specialist exam this coming November. Part of my job is teaching and educating clients about health and nutrition, but rarely do I get the opportunity to go in depth with the biochemical pathways of the human body. This is the area of nutrition that fascinates me, and tutoring in nutrition is my way of helping others in their understanding of this important area of nutrition.

I do have experience as a teacher as well. I lived and worked in Quito, Ecuador for 3 years, where I taught English to Spanish speaking students at a local college. I loved seeing the improvements my students made, and the sense of accomplishment they felt when they learned a new skill.

I have a real passion for nutrition education, and I take every opportunity I can to bring that enthusiasm with me when I teach. I understand that teaching styles need to evolve with different students; some prefer videos, others verbal explanations, while still others require writing to solidify the information. I can work flexibly with any learning style, and have the patience to keep trying until we find a style that works.

Being a recent student myself, I understand the pitfalls of learning complex biochemical pathways. I have put in the work to understand this area, and can now use what I´ve learned to help others. I graduated Suma Cum Laude from my Masters Program, and am eligible to obtain my Certified Nutrition Specialist credentials in November. Nutrition is my life, and my passion.

Contact me to learn, to grow, and to be inspired.
