About Me

I believe our bodies want to heal when provided the right environment. Diet, lifestyle choices, medications and even toxins can affect your ability to achieve health. Knowing where to start and what to do can be confusing and frustrating. I can help by simplifying the process. Together we will identify your opportunity areas and create your roadmap towards optimal health.

What inspired me to become a wellness professional?

My motivation for becoming a dietitian started in high school. I needed to fill a vacant slot in my schedule and thought a nutrition class sounded interesting. At that time in my life I was eating a lot of fast food dinners and oh so many sweets. So, I thought what the heck. I ended up loving the course and knew then that I wanted to be a dietitian. This choice has been one of the best I have made in my life.

How my clients describe their first visit?

I felt empowered after working with Patty. She is great about explaining the how's but also helped me understand my why's. Change can't happen if you're not ready and Patty does a great job of meeting me where I am at. I had a list of lifestyle and diet changes that would help me reach my goals. I choose to start small and build on my successes. Patty did challenge me with a harder goal (increasing my activity), which I am pleased to say I am succeeding even my own expectations. Small steps, when done consistently and with support, has made all the difference!

What I say to someone who has never tried Jicama (hic-a-ma)?

Hick a What? Believe me, that was my response a few years back. So what is jicama? Some call it a Mexican turnip or potato. It is best when eaten raw. I call it a surprising blend of crunchiness, sweetness and juiciness that is delicious in salads or as a snack with peanut butter. Don't let the look intimidate you. The skin is thin and easy to trim away with a paring knife. Whether chopped, sliced or julienned, it will be a new favorite. Oh, and did I tell you it is super nutritious. Low fat, high fiber and a natural source of pre-biotics! I bet you can't eat just one bite!
