About

I currently work as an outpatient dietitian, mainly with pregnant women diagnosed with gestational diabetes. My patient population is low-income, usually Spanish speaking, and almost always obese prior to pregnancy. I'm interested in how best to estimate nutrient needs and develop effective dietary and lifestyle interventions for my patient population. I'm preparing to apply to doctoral programs next fall to study public health nutrition.
