What's your business, and who are your customers?
I provide nutrition coaching to individuals looking to improve their lifestyle, manage food sensitivities, eat healthier, and manage weight. I also provide medical nutrition therapy (MNT) for those with diabetes, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, hypertension, and more.
Tell us about yourself
I am a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) with a specialty in diabetes (CDCES) and weight management. I had over a decade of clinical experience before starting my own practice. I am passionate about balancing a healthy lifestyle while still enjoying food. Being a part of so many success stories is incredibly rewarding and is a huge part of why I love what I do.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Turning my vision of what I want to do into a reality and knowing that with each person I reach, I am helping them meet goals and improve their quality of life.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Finding a balance between work and home life. I have an amazing husband and two incredible girls. I want to model a good work ethic but also the importance of quality family time.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Find something you know well and that you are passionate about.
