What is your background?
I grew up in Bucks County, PA and have lived in Delaware and New Jersey before moving back to Bucks County. I have a B.S. in Hospitality Management from IUP and then went back to school for my Masters in Nutrition Education and to complete my dietetic internship at Immaculata University. I have worked as a retail dietitian and outpatient dietitian at community hospitals prior to starting at CHARGE. I personally had to learn from a young age how to eat better to maintain a healthier lifestyle, which only fueled my passion for nutrition. I love helping others and this is a perfect career that enables me to combine my passion for food/nutrition while helping others!
What are the values that drive you?
I would say compassion, empathy, and honesty. I think they are especially important in my current position and impact how I live my everyday life.
What do you like about working at the charge group?
I love getting to work with a variety of people to achieve their health and wellness goals. Each person has their own story and journey to share! I am appreciative of the team of professionals that I get to collaborate with on a regular basis!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love to spend time with family and friends! My husband and I have a very active almost 3 year old, so most of our free time is spent with her. I love to dance, take walks, ride bikes, read, cook/bake, and enjoy watching a good show on TV or Netflix.
