My approach to care

My approach to care is providing the materials and support patients need to be successful in their nutrition goals.

Why I went into healthcare

I became a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist because I’ve always been interested in food and how food affects the body. As someone who has also grown up in an underserved community, I have always wanted to help people who need guidance, especially when it comes to their overall health.

Something you might not know about me

I was born and grew up in another country, the Philippines, and that I love trying new foods.
