Community Health & Wellness

A truly hands-on and interactive experience

Nutrition Education

I have an extensive background in both creating and implementing presentations on a wide array of nutrition topics. These include, but are not limited to:

– goal setting– understanding metabolism
– macro & micronutrients– mindful eating & stress management
– reading food labels– building a healthy plate
– portion control– eating healthy when dining out
– meal planning– eating healthy on a budget
– added sugars– healthy breakfast ideas
– dietary trends– staying healthy during the holidays

Additionally, I have experience teaching functional movement and “brain break” activities in order to help individuals increase their physical activity during the busy work day without requiring any equipment.

As an expert in the field, I will customize a presentation or an entire class series based on your specific needs.



I have over a decade of experience teaching nutrition across various populations. These include, but are not limited to:

– educators– assisted living residents
– college students– fitness trainers
– weight loss participants– foodservice workers
– diabetics– K-12th school children
– medical professionals– fitness studio members
– parents– working professionals

Cooking Demonstrations


I ensure my presentations are both interactive and informative.

I utilize a student-based approach to nutrition education by incorporating various activities that center around the participation of attendees. This may include incorporating a healthy cooking demonstration in conjunction with traditional learning, leading brain break exercises, or creating team challenges.

Preparing a recipe as a group always makes health education much more fun and enjoyable.


Community Wide Events

If you are looking to hire an RD & Certified Personal Trainer at your next health fair, business networking event, group meeting, farmer’s market, grocery store event, trade show, fundraiser, resident event, school-wide event, building grand opening, or health promotions party, look no further. 

Community events provide a wonderful opportunity to promote healthy messaging while connecting with large groups of people in a captivating and creative way. Learn how much sugar is hidden in popular beverages, taste a recipe you have never tried, learn what types of oils are the healthiest, or learn what exercises can be done in the comfort of your home or office. The health education possibilities are endless.

All presentations and workshops can be completed virtually.

Make Elevate your Plate® part of your upcoming meeting, event, or class to ensure nutrition education and physical activity resources are readily available to your participants.
