Brief bio

I grew up in an Indian home in South Louisiana where life happened around the kitchen. I remember at a young age watching my mom alter recipes to help manage my dad’s cholesterol levels through diet. A small seed was planted at that time about the relationship between food and disease prevention. Fast forward several years later and when I learned about being able to major in nutrition at LSU, I knew this is what I wanted to do. I loved learning about how food made people feel – both in the day to day but also in preventing disease and I went on to study just that in graduate school. I am passionate about nutrition and have spent time in the different areas of nutrition: clinical, food service, and now corporate wellness. I currently work as a Registered Dietitian for Thrive Pediatric Nutrition and the Chick-fil-A Wellness Center.  I currently live in Birmingham, AL with my husband and 2 year old daughter.

Personal Mission Statement

I am passionate about building relationships with people as they walk through their health journey. My goal in working with clients is to help them learn the foods that give them their best energy while still enjoying foods they love.
