I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Licensed Massage Therapist. I am the founder/owner of Synergy, where we specialize in promoting Health at Every Size (HAES) and resuming body trust. I graduated with my BS in Nutrition and Dietetics from Oregon State University (Go Beavs!) in 2009. I completed internship through University of Delaware with local rotations in Bend, OR. Those internship rotations opened doors for me that have led to work experience in public health, hospital, clinical and private practice nutrition.
I'm most passionate about working with pediatric and adult weight concerns, but also enjoy heart health nutrition, diabetes, and healing relationship with food or disordered eating.
Prior to becoming an RDN, I studied Massage Therapy at East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon. While studying there I also worked under Physical Therapists learning about treatment for injury rehabilitation. 2018 marks my 19th year as a massage therapist!
