I am a Registered Dietitian and certified diabetes educator in the greater Philadelphia area. My career has included experiences with a variety of nutritional education programs to consumers, members of the food industry, the media and other pertinent health organizations. My passion and professional specialty is in diabetes education and prevention. As a diabetes educator for diabetes self-management training program (DSME) and a nutrition counselor for community-based groups and/or in one-on-one settings, it has become apparent that many individuals may have prevented Type 2 diabetes with access to a diabetes prevention program. I was excited when I was offered the opportunity to become a DTTAC Lifestyle Coach Trainer and, then, subsequently a Master Trainer Select where I conduct Lifestyle Coach training for organizations planning to establish Diabetes Prevention Programs. I am a strong proponent of self-management through lifestyle changes, especially in today’s healthcare environment. I believe given the right opportunity and support, individuals can reach many of their personal health objectives.
