In her private practice, she focuses on weight management, pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes. She emphasizes healthy food choices and lifestyle modification. Originally from New York and presently a Connecticut resident, she maintains a private practice in both states.
Her passion is learning about food and customs from different cultures. She has traveled extensively and lived abroad for four years. She enjoys the challenge of creating individualized meal plans that follow a persons cultural/ethnic food preferences. After the initial consultation, patients are relieved that they can still enjoy many of their favorite foods while still following a healthy diet.
Over the past 30 years, she has prevented hundreds of clients with pre-diabetes from developing type 2 diabetes. She believes that healthy food choices, portion control and lifestyle changes are the keys to preventing type 2 diabetes.
