I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Maryland Dental School and quickly learned dental hygiene was not where it was at for me. In my early 20’s, I changed my focus to study nutrition at Simmons College in Boston, then completed a one-year post-graduate internship at Massachusetts General Hospital and then my Master of Science degree in Nutrition from Massachusetts General Hospital’s Institute of Health Professions -with a heavy focus on nutritional biochemistry and sports nutrition. Along the way, I also became a registered nurse. My career path has given me invaluable experiences with both traditional and functional care. Most recently I have started a business providing clinical nutrition coaching for health professionals-- called Practice Like A Pro
