I love communicating, spreading the word about ways to create a healthy selfie with realistic, lifestyle friendly strategies. I contribute to blogs, and am frequently interviewed for my comments on trending nutrition topics. In addition I love to write, and have authored 2 books and co-authored four. I always try to put myself in the reader’s seat – what would I want to learn, do I walk away with something new and are the recommendations sustainable, enjoyable and affordable.

I like to pick a  topic and put a different spin on it – thinking out of the box, sprinkling in some humor and real world application to the confusing, overwhelming world of nutrition.
