Years at God’s Love: 14

Nutrition specialty area:
Gerontology, HIV

What is a typical daily activity that you enjoy? Running

What is your favorite God’s Love menu item? It’s a toss-up between Tofu Eggplant Caponata and Tofu Bean Lasagna.

Tell us a little known fact about yourself: I’ve climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro

Tell us about a moment that made you realize what made God’s Love special.
Many years ago, a client tearfully thanked me for her son’s birthday cake. It was something that she didn’t expect and something that she wouldn’t have been able to get for him. This has stayed with me ever since.

Who is/was your biggest influence as an RDN? An influence of mine is Susan Knightly. She is a co-author of a book called Food for Recovery which focuses on the nutritional aspect of recovery. This book inspired me to go back to school for my Master’s in Nutrition.

What is your guilty pleasure food (note: this is not an endorsement)? Red wine and popcorn. Not necessarily at the same time.
If you could live your life by a particular quote or saying, what would it be? “Perfectionism means that you try not to leave so much mess to clean up. But clutter and mess show us that life is being lived.” –Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
