Hi! I'm Issie, a lover of good food, health, and sustainability
I am 21 years old and recently graduated college with a passion for health and sustainable practices. I went to school in the small town of Keene, NH where I completed a Bachelor of Science in Public Health & Nutrition Science with a concentration in environmental sustainability. I grew up in Bristol, CT and will be residing here for the duration of my Dietetic Internship I will be completing at UConn & Hartford Hospital starting this fall.
I have gained my love for good food over the years from a family with broad tastes for different cultures. I have grown my interest in nutrition from my mother's interest in chronic disease prevention and have since chosen to become a Registered Dietitian.
for all the delicious eats
I first became interested in plant-based nutrition 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 aim 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 we can directly make an impact.
With those interests and coming from a family of both omnivores and herbivores alike, I have a unique take on how to make nourishing meals and plant-based food taste delicious!
