Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, nice to meet ya!
I’m not just passionate and opinionated about health and wellness - I’m a Registered Dietitian! I dove headfirst into the captivating waters of Nutrition, Healthspan, and Longevity, emerging with my Master of Science from the University of Southern California, go Trojans! These actions catapulted me to the distinguished status of Registered Dietitian. Now I am on a mission to propagate health consciousness among individuals who want better out of life and better out of themselves.
My aim? To bring a revolution to the way people perceive and implement their lifestyle habits.
My plan? To help navigate the tricky terrain of transformation, making it less of a chore and more of an adventure.

You may be wondering why should I work with this girl over hundreds of other professionals out there? Well, I am not your ordinary Dietitian. Yes, I have an unwavering passion for health, nutrition, and wellness, but I have also spent years mastering the complex interplay between nutrition, health, and lifestyle. My expertise lies not just in the science behind it all, but in cultivating a holistic perspective toward wellness with additional insight into education, disease states, eating disorders, research, and lifestyle changes. Unlike others who follow a one-size-fits-all approach, my dedication to your health begins with a deep, individualized understanding of your unique needs and personal goals. I firmly believe that nutrition is not just about eating; it's about enhancing life quality. I will guide you towards making empowered and enlightened lifestyle choices, fostering a positive relationship with your health and overall wellness that will ripple into every facet of your life.
My background in behavioral change strategies further equips me to support you through every step of your journey, providing not only the technical know-how, but the empathetic, personal support to foster enduring change. Together, we will sculpt an individualized plan that is nourishing, sustainable, and tailored specifically to you to promote a fuller, more joyful life. With me, you're not just choosing a dietitian, you're choosing a partner on your journey towards optimal wellness.
Changing habits and routines can be challenging, especially when we don’t know what changes to make or how to make them sustainable. Telling yourself you’ll ‘start tomorrow’ becomes redundant and can lead to feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and frustrated. It’s then that we realize our practice of unhealthy habits has become a part of our lifestyle. It’s then that we realize we are ready for a change.
Why is it so hard to hold on to healthy habits?
Part of making habits sustainable is making them personal. There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to health and wellness. This is why fad diets aren’t sustainable and why what your friend did maybe didn’t work for you in the same way. Individualization is key. But where to start?
Veggicated is here with a personalized approach, providing evidence-based guidance and strategies that are customized to fit your wants, needs, and lifestyle. These strategies are built for longevity and help redirect your priorities, transforming your behaviors into long-lasting actions fitted for growth.
