Hi! I'm Issie, a lover of good food, health, and sustainability

I am officially a Registered Dietitian! I have always had a passion for health and sustainable practices stemming from many different aspects of my childhood. This lead me to complete my Bachelor of Science at Keene State College in New Hampshire in Public Health & Nutrition with a concentration in Environmental Sustainability. I then completed my Dietetic Internship (supervised practice program) through the University of Connecticut and did my clinical rotations at Hartford Hospital.  As I am particularly interested in plant-focused nutrition I was also able to complete a Plant Based Nutrition Certificate Program from Cornell University during my Undergrad. All of these experiences have provided me with a well-rounded, sustainability-focused, nutrition education.


How did I get started?


I have gained my love for good food over the years from a family with broad tastes for different cultures. My interest in nutrition stemmed from my mother's interest in chronic disease prevention and is one of the main reasons why I became a Registered Dietitian. 

I first became interested in plant-based nutrition specifically through the discovery of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Forks Over Knives, and How Not to Die by Dr. Michael Greger. I have since expanded my knowledge by focusing on current and emerging research on a more "flexitarian" diet. My goal is to help people prevent and reverse the chronic diseases that have become so prevalent in America by eating a diet supported by science, focusing on plants.

I am also passionate about our environment and doing what we can to reduce and limit the effects of climate change. Our food choices have such an immense impact on our planet and we can directly make beneficial changes by making more sustainable choices. With those interests and coming from a family of both omnivores and herbivores alike, I have a unique take on how to make nourishing, plant-based meals taste delicious!

What am I up to currently?

I am currently working full time as the Outpatient Registered Dietitian at the Wellness Center for Bristol Health Medical Group. I work one on one with patients daily conducting diet recalls, reviewing medical histories/ labs, then provide Medical Nutrition Therapy/ Nutrition Education and individual goals for each patient.

I see patients on a referral basis- this means that if you would like to work with me in person you should talk to your primary care doctor or specialty provider about getting referred to see me. 

I see patients for a variety of reasons, including;

  • to reduce high cholesterol/ blood pressure, to manage and prevent pre-diabetes/ type 2 diabetes

  • to manage symptoms of IBS/ to improve gut health

  • weight management

    • to lose weight

    • to lose weight while on GLP-1s (Ozempic)

    • to lose weight/ maintain a healthy diet after Bariatric Surgery

    • to gain weight

  • to provide nutrition education

If you are interested in working with me call my office at 860-516-7679.
