Who I Am. What I Do.
As a registered dietitian nutritionist for over 20 years (that's the RDN after my name), I have a wealth of practical experience in nutrition education for audiences of all backgrounds and ages.
While earning a doctorate and becoming a college professor (that's the PhD after my name), I learned to interpret the latest health and wellness research.
As a nutrition counselor, lifestyle coach, worksite wellness presenter, writer, and fellow of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (that's the FAND after my name), I translate the science into practical information, tailoring nutrition and lifestyle advice to individuals.
With my active lifestyle and love of sports, I know the importance of fueling my body and helping others fuel theirs.
As a mom, I want quick and easy tips to please everyone. I also encourage my kids and others to listen to their bodies, enjoy food, eat intuitively and mindfully, and live a healthy lifestyle.
As a patient myself and a member of a family tree full of chronic illnesses, I know how important it is to prevent or manage heart disease, IBS, cancer, diabetes, gluten sensitivity, etc.
As a world traveler, I have explored local and cultural food practices, and believe there is no one perfect diet but an exciting assortment of dietary patterns that work.
As an environmentalist, I want to eat in a way that does not contribute to greenhouse gas emissions, dead zones, overfishing and water waste.
I can empathize with you... Demanding schedule. Tight budget. Stress. Finding time to exercise. Sleep difficulties. Slowing metabolism. Digestive issues. I know your life is an important, exhilarating, messy medley that needs fine-tuning, and I can help!

Lastly, I share my insights with you in my latest book: Eat to Defeat Viruses: A Nutritionist's Guide To Strengthening Your Immunity! This guidebook gives you practical information and easy steps to motivate you to start making small changes to your diet, activity, and lifestyle! Check it out :)
P.S. I retired as the founding director of the Kendall Reagan Nutrition Center and could not be prouder of my legacy: History of the Kendall Reagan Nutrition Center.
