Thank you for visiting my E-portfolio site!

I am a Master’s in Nutrition candidate in my last year at Bastyr University, to graduate June of 2012. I am passionate for community nutrition and especially the nutritional needs of the underserved in community health centers. I bring a strong international background and experience in multiple fields, giving a high level of cultural sensitivity and ability to find commonalities, both of which give a deeper foundation to my dietetics work and communication skills. As a yoga teacher, I bring mindfulness and intention to all activities, and convey a presence that strengthens my counseling technique and interpersonal skills by engendering a sense of empathy that allows the science of nutritional care to be delivered with care and compassion to nourish each whole person.
