I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist and a Mindful and Instinctive Eating Practitioner (MIEP). I’m 35 years old and was born and raised in Miami, Florida. I became a dietitian mainly to discover and learn more about my personal health conditions - I was diagnosed with TRAPS (TNF-associated periodic syndrome) at the age of 27, and have been living with this disorder since I was 5 years old. I’ve also been very motivated to help those who share similar disorders and show them that it’s a manageable condition based on lifestyle. My purpose is to find a happy median between functional medicine nutrition and MIEP. My work history includes working at Davita dialysis for over 3 years, West Gables rehabilitation hospital for 1 year, and Florida Dept of Health WIC for 5 years. Currently, I’m enrolled in COT, working part-time as a pilates instructor, and in the process of building my own private practice.
