I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who is a Board Certified Specialist in Pediatric Nutrition and Certified Diabetes Educator. I work at the Children’s Clinics and specialize in nutrition therapy for children with complex medical conditions. I have a special interest in homemade blended tube feedings and diet therapy for children with multiple food allergies. I am honored to join this year’s AZ LEND program. My leadership goals will focus on enhancing the medical team and family understanding of alternate feeding modalities and to expand the community’s definition of nurturing to include lovingly feeding children in unusual yet effective ways to promote optimal health and growth.
