I became a registered dietitian in 2011 after completing both my bachelor's degree in food and nutrition and a Coordinated Program in Dietetics at the University of Alabama. I then earned a master's degree in community health education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I obtained my specialty certification as an eating disorders dietitian through the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals in 2021.
Before working in private practice, I was the lead dietitian at an eating disorder treatment facility at the residential and partial hospitalization (PHP) levels-of-care, and
I served as the dietitian for the outpatient eating disorder treatment team at UAB's Student Health and Wellness Center. Helping individuals recover from their eating disorder truly excites and inspires me, and I can't imagine dedicating my career to anything else.
