She has worked with children, adolescents and families in her mental health practice and recognized the need for a focus on Nutrition, as the correlation between FOOD and MOOD was evident in how her clients functioned. This was particularly prominent with the clients of color, and she felt compelled to introduce the youth and families to healthy food options. She also volunteers with Three Squares to educate the families and youth in the Bay area about the importance of creating healthy eating habits and learning hands on cooking techniques that they can use for a lifetime. After having her son, she decided to focus her practice on expectant, new and veteran moms who are looking for ways find healthy, time/cost effective solutions to eating and snacking, as well as helping women to eat for energy, decrease stress and control weight. She is teaching cooking classes on for Nutrition clients of the Specific Chiropractic Center in Piedmont, as well as teaching nutrition to Doulas in training with the Nia Healing Center in Oakland.
