Hi! I'm Issie, a lover of good food, health, and sustainability
I recently passed my Dietetic Registration Exam and am now 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 based 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.
for all the delicious eats
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.
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 have since expanded my knowledge by focusing on current and emerging research. 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!
