Registered Dietitian


As the senior dietitian for the Simms/Mann Center, I provide personalized nutrition counseling and support for patients and their families as they navigate through the unique and often complex nutrition-related challenges that can accompany a cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment. Additionally, I provide resources and support as the focus transitions to survivorship and reducing risk of future illness. I believe nutrition is a key component to becoming and staying well, and food is one of life’s great pleasures. I feel privileged to help guide patients and their families towards a tailored nutrition plan that addresses their individual needs, and is both healthy and satisfying.

Training and Professional Work

I attended the University of Maine for my undergraduate degree in Human Nutrition, and completed my internship to become a dietitian through California State University, Long Beach. After graduation, I returned to Maine and worked in an in-patient setting for several years before transitioning to a community-based role that focused on providing nutrition education and hands-on cooking skills to low-income families. During the pandemic, I began working in telemedicine, and decided to return to California in 2021. Most recently, I had been working in a combined in-patient/out-patient setting at Providence St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, providing nutrition care and education with a focus on oncology. I’m thrilled to have transitioned to the Simms/Mann clinic and look forward to expanding the nutrition-focused offerings that the center hopes to provide.

Personal Interests

In my free time I love to read, cook, hang out with my cats and explore all of the beautiful places my new state of California has to offer!
