In the first part of my career in dietetics, I was working as a dietitian in a clinical setting, advising patients with various health needs and concerns on how to improve their nutrition status and navigate dietary challenges. I am passionate about fighting malnutrition and improving access to and knowledge about nutritious foods. I believe in promoting a healthy relationship with food through gentle and inclusive messaging.
I’ve worked with rural communities to improve nutrition and other health outcomes in a developing country.
