Welcome!  I’m glad you’ve found my site!  Consider me your translator and guide on your overall wellness and nutrition journey.  Here, I juxtapose and interpret the latest findings with classic nutritional theories and techniques, plus share the recipes and resources that enrich my own food and wellness journey and those of my clients … and those, that really, really don’t.

While I certainly don’t know everything, I do have a Master of Science in Human Nutrition, a voracious appetite for reading and critiquing (and sometimes debunking!) the latest research, the willingness and curiosity to try and review new things, and a time-tested bullsh*t detector. As a former engineer and business executive, I am equally comfortable synthesizing the big picture view or zooming into the details and the data.

 Can’t find what you’re looking for? Feel free to ask – I welcome your feedback and questions. Enjoy! 


Healthy Change to Outlast that New Year’s Resolution

Recovering corporate executive (and all-around type A), avid stand up paddler, traveler, and yogi. Now a Licensed Nutritionist (LN) in North Carolina and a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS), which is the gold standard certification for advanced clinical nutrition professionals. I launched my nutrition practice after completing a Master of Science (MS) degree in Functional Nutrition.  I take a special interest in healthy body composition, gut health, fatigue, and food allergies –  and frequently deal with these and more, not just in clinical practice but also in my own life.

This blog is a place where I can share thoughts on the latest research developments and news on nutritional approaches to wellness, anecdotes from my own clinical practice, my favorite (and easy!) recipes and resources so that even those with multiple food allergies can eat well and easily. 

Most of all, I aim to debunk the idea that nutrition has to be another burden or “no pain, no gain” type endeavor – even when you have complex health issues, it doesn’t have to be so hard!  And hence, the name, “Not-So-Hard Nutrition.”

Thanks for joining me on the journey!
