Why I Work at ICHS:
At ICHS I have the opportunity to provide high quality, culturally competent care to patients who have historically been underserved by our health care system. With improved access to care, specifically specialty care like nutrition, patients can improve health outcomes, disease management, and quality of life.
Patient Care Philosophy:
Since one’s relationship to food is deeply emotional, cultural and psychological I do not believe a one-size model fits all patients. As such, I provide nutritional counseling that takes these factors into consideration, helps patient overcome any ambivalence to change, and develops concrete/feasible steps to reach goals.
Interesting Note About Myself:
In my free time I enjoy gardening, cooking, hiking, biking, reading, traveling and seeing live music.
