As a resource for my clients, I have created this site to help answer some of your questions. To contact me, use the phone number or email above.

I have a twenty-plus year career in nutrition counseling, specializing in diabetes, obesity and hyperlipidemia. I obtained Bachelor of Science (BS) and Master of Science (MS) degrees in Nutrition from Douglass College. I received my Dietetic Registration (RD) in 1985, and have been a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) since 1993.

I have worked extensively at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Joslin Center for Diabetes, and with numerous internal medicine, endocrinology and cardiology practices. I have taught classes, led programs and lectured on diabetes, cholesterol reduction, and weight management. I currently maintain a private nutrition practice, and consult for area physicians, and other health practitioners. I also work in the Diabetes Management Program at the University Medical Center at Princeton and at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital at Hamilton.

Using both an individualized and behavioral approach, I enable the patient to make long-term changes and maintain a positive attitude.

  • I currently participate with Oxford Health Plans and Aetna/USHealthCare. If you have one of these plans, please inform me when making your appointment. You must secure and bring with you a referral from your physician. Understand that this does not guarantee that this service will be covered by your insurer. I will work with you to maximize the chance of coverage, but if your insurer does not pay, you are ultimately responsible for the bill.

You should check with your insurance company to determine if this is a covered service for reimbursement purposes. You will be given a detailed receipt for insurance submission.
