First thing you should know about me is that I’m passionate about two things: weight loss and motherhood


Over the past 20+ years working with clients to lose weight, I've witnessed incredible transformations--physical, mental and emotional.  Yours can be next.


As an Internal Medicine physician with an interest in helping women optimize their fertility through weight loss, I know about the processes and procedures used by OB/GYNs and REIs.


As a mother, I know what it’s like to have things not go as planned.

My first son was a 24-week preemie. I’m all too familiar with the emotional and physical lengths we’ll go for our child (it's sometimes hard to believe he’s on his way to college now and going strong). After all the heartache we have a happy ending—and so can you.


Another important thing to know is that I walk my talk.  I lost 50 pounds myself and have kept it off for 12+ years.  I know the journey first-hand and can relate to yours in a nonjudgmental way.  Whether it's emotional eating, trigger foods, or over-eating I have felt and dealt with them all. 


Between my own experiences and those of my clients, I have developed clear and easy to use processes that help you succeed.  Long-term.



Education History:

My formal higher education began at Tufts University where I received my BA in social psychology.  I earned my Medical Degree from University of California, Irvine and completed my Internal Medicine training in a residency program through UCLA. Subsequently, I obtained a Masters in Public Health there while finishing a research Fellowship.  I have worked in private and University settings since.
