I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) based in Sacramento, California, with training in nutritional science, counseling, culinary arts, and research. Becoming an RDN is a lengthy process, including earning an advanced degree, a 1,200-hour internship, and a rigorous exam—and then continuing professional education to maintain teh credential. I have training in the FODMAP elimination/reintroduction protocol for IBS management from Monash University (the folks who first identified the role of FODMAPs in IBS). I have served as a recipe developer, nutritional consultant and coach, and currently work full-time in nutritional research.
Alongside my work as an RDN, I am also an editor and writer with two decades of experience. I have worked as an editor for book publishers, websites, and magazines, and have published two books. My editorial career has included developing and editing recipes, food writing, nutritional analysis, content consultation, and editing material by and for health professionals. In 2023, I served as a cookbook judge for the IACP Awards in the health and wellness category.
