A Passion for Nutrition

I am writing you today to inform you about my new endeavor! I studied dietetics as Iowa State University, and went on to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, LD through ISU's Accredited Dietetic Internship Program in 2014.

I have a sincere passion for nutrition and working with my clients, specifically focusing on the benefits of proper nutrition education in relation to health and wellness. That being said, I decided to take a risk doing what I love, and newly founded a company called Nutrify Solutions LLC. My philosophy uses medical nutrition therapy to support realistic and personalized nutrition care plans for patients in relation to medically diagnosed health issues, or for those searching for overall nutritional guidance in their life.

This one of a kind service offers various options for clients, and I conduct one-on-one counseling sessions via Skype, phone, or email, formulating individualized interventions to improve health and nutrition, done virtually at any time and anywhere through out the country! Nutrition is finally being recognized as a crucial factor in disease prevention and intervention, and I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with clients to help them on their journey to achieve optimum health and wellness, and truly make a difference in peoples lives.

I want to thank Iowa State, my various instructors and internship preceptors for providing me with such a wonderful experiences and the education to get me where I am today. All enabling me to pursue my passion for nutrition and working with people, leading me to follow my dream of opening a private practice in nutrition therapy!
