About Food With Strength

At Food With Strength, we love food and fitness and we want you to love them too. We individualize everything to you and are entirely online. You can improve your lifestyle without ever leaving the comfort of your own home. 

Why work with us? Nutrition is a complex field because it is everchanging. As Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, not only is it our job to stay abreast of emerging research–we love it! And we are always looking for ways to provide you with the best, most up-to-date services.

Keeping up with an evolving field is NOT the same as jumping on the fad diet bandwagon. We value effective, evidence-based methods for utilizing nutrition and fitness as a way to improve overall health. A healthy lifestyle will look different for everyone and your nutrition plan should be customized to fit your goals.

    I love food and I love eating food. I also stick to the recommendations I give to clients and patients. Food can be a joy to create and a tool to help us live better—it’s all about balance. I’ve been building my knowledge of nutrition and its overall impact on health for over a decade. I’ve worked mainly in a clinical setting helping people manage their chronic conditions or diseases such as diabetes or cancer.


    Outside of the clinical setting, I’ve worked with individuals to improve their nutrition for their specific sport. As a Personal Trainer and a former semi-professional athlete, I fully understand the needs and desire to be the best you can be. When you’re striving to be better at your sport food can’t be your only focus. I work with clients to help them find the system that fits their life and provides them with their nutrition needs. Let’s work together and build the system that’s best for you.

    The majority of my experience is working with patients preparing for weight loss surgery. What that really means is that I have discussed how to use nutrition as a tool with patients who are managing all obesity-related health conditions. Yes, weight loss is sometimes a goal. But, ultimately the number on the scale is not what should determine your health.


    Here are some things you won’t get from me: lectures, strict diet plans, a list of foods you should never eat again, a negative image of yourself. Here are some things that you can count on: skills for eating intuitively, better self-esteem, confidence in your ability to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Sure, we can talk about recipes and counting calories. But, diets don’t work. So I’m not going to put you on one.


If you can’t find the answers to all of your questions feel free to send us a message. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
