  5. Why did you choose to be a provider in your specialty?

    I have always been interested in Health and Nutrition, having been influenced by my grandmother who was a health nut, and my 10th grade Biology teacher who inspired me to choose the path of nutrition for a profession. I love helping others discover the benefits of healthy eating and helping them develop healthy lifestyle habits.

  6. What are your top three personal values? Authenticity, compassion, service
  7. What is your approach to connect with your patients? I try to get to know them first and ask how I can best understand their needs and try to meet them where they are at in their health journey. I often share that I have Type 1 Diabetes so understand the many challenges they face managing a chronic disease, or health condition as I live it myself and need to make decisions about food and how it will impact my own health. I respect the relationships we have with food and its many meanings from cravings, hunger, cultural, comfort, nourishment, taste and pleasure. I try to help patients make choices based on their individualized health needs with respect to preferences and relationships with food.
  8. What is one of your most proud accomplishments? When I received the "RYDY: Recognized Young Dietitian of the Year" award from the American Dietetic Association now Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This is a state and national award and I was 2 months postpartum and breastfeeding my daughter at the time at the NY state Dietetic Association meeting. I feel blessed to have an amazing career helping others while raising 2 children who have become competent young adults. I was always wanted to become a yoga instructor, but never followed through after a few teacher trainings, then this year I discovered a yoga certification program "Get Fit Where you Sit" and was certified in "Chair Yoga". I am now able to demonstrate to my patients who may have some flexibility challenges and teach it to groups at our health centers many classes. It was one of my most proudest moments after the week long training was completed and finally qualified to teach a type of yoga, anything you do on the mat can be done in a chair.
  9. Describe Cornerstone’s mission in one word: Dedication
