Sarah is a Licensed and Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist working with patients and corporate wellness clients online via telehealth.
Originally from the Midwest, Sarah completed her undergraduate degree and dietetic internship at Purdue University. During her education, she spent a semester completing nutrition courses in Perth, Australia at Curtin University. This experience allowed her to realize how much she loved to meet new people and learn about cultures. Before graduation, she spent a summer working with organic farm owners in Southeast Asia to decipher research claims on produce marketing.
Sarah’s first job out of school landed her in Boston, MA, where her science-oriented mind and empathy for people suffering led her to pursue a career in the hospital setting. She started in behavioral health and medical-surgical units. As she gained clinical knowledge, she accepted the position as the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) dietitian and eventually as the Clinical Nutrition Manager at Carney Hospital. Although her science mind thrived, the ICU and management roles required more time looking at a screen or calculator than connecting with patients. She decided to transition and become the outpatient dietitian for MetroWest Medical Center Cardiac Rehab Center, as well as Fenway Health Medical Center. She knew she found her niche when her days at work no longer felt like work.
As a high school runner, Sarah became interested in nutrition and performance. Yet, at the same time, she saw first-hand how nutrition can be a source of pressure and confusion. Therefore, Sarah loves to work with those hoping to heal their relationship with food. She specializes in hormonal and women’s health. A foodie at heart, Sarah empowers patients to enjoy eating in a way that is life giving and sustainable. One of her joys about being a dietitian is feeling inspired by her client’s strength, resilience, and growth.
Sarah ensures adequate time to get to know what truly matters to her clients so that together they can partner to move towards this. She gets excited to see her clients find confidence in caring for themselves and enjoy eating in a new way. She believes that the best ideas lie within the client, and she is there to process with, encourage, and educate along the way.
