I'm a Denver, CO based Registered Dietitian who has specialized in the solid organ transplant patient population for the last five years and am ready to use my in depth clinical knowledge to use food as medicine in disease prevention and treatment. My specialities include managing chronic diseases, preparing for and recovering from surgery, remaining fit and strong throughout the lifecycle. I especially enjoy managing vitamin and mineral deficiencies, nutrition support, and doing a deep dive into research to debunk those common nutrition myths!
Approach to care
Food and movement are the two of the biggest joys of life, and I love sharing that with others and individualizing care to help you experience the those joys in ways that matter most to you. As an empathetic person, I deeply care about who who are as a person first, then what your health goals are, which I explore through asking questions to understand, drawing connections, and coming alongside you to empower you to be the best version of you! I view food and movement as medicine, especially in treating and preventing chronic disease.
What to expect in your first session with Heather?
Take a deep breath, and show up as you are! I want to get to know you outside of your nutrition concerns, and for you to know and trust me outside of being your dietitian. Once we're ready to dive in to your nutrition habits, we'll talk about your diet history including what a typical day of eating looks like for you, your food preferences, comfort level and knowledge of nutrition topics, and most importantly, what YOUR goals are. I'll also ask about your activity levels and any big changes changes in your weight. No need to pretend to have it all together - none of us do! By the end of the session, we will have set one goal together to kickstart your health journey.
