I grew up in a very healthy household, with a mother that always read labels and fed the family nutritious foods. We both struggled with weight management throughout childhood, so I know first hand, the struggles with making healthy lifestyle choices long term. Physical fitness was always a family affair as well. My ninth grade home-ec teacher, Mrs. McKay, saw my interest and vast knowledge of nutrition and suggested a career as a dietitian. As a result, I have loved being a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist for over 20 years. Unfortunately, that passion to educate and motivate others to become healthier and happier has taken me away from my family and loved ones for far too long. I started this business so that I could spend time with my family, and see my daughter grow up, without sacrificing my passion to help others.
Not only is this an online market to save time, frustration with crowds and lines at the shopping centers, but this is a site where people can find reputable, healthy lifestyle, and nutrition information and products from a highly trained and credentialed expert in this field. As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist, my vision is to motivate people to improve their health and well being through education, encouragement, motivation, and or product recommendation. Although this does not replace a physician ordered, formal, medical nutrition therapy session, I hope it will be a kick start to set and achieve even the smallest of health goals, which is the key to continuing on the right path of one's health and wellness journey.
