My Story

Growing up in a Greek Orthodox household, I became fully immersed in the Mediterranean diet at a young age. I like to call my family a big FIT Greek family! Not only did my parents prepare nutritious foods for me and my sisters, but they also were (and continue to be) very physically active. They showed me just how incredible life can be by nourishing this body that we get to call home. And more importantly, they taught me the value of nutrition and exercise working together synergistically.

I've helped countless people reach their optimal state of health, including myself. Having been through my own weight loss and wellness journey, I get the ups and downs and truly believe that the most important part of taking care of your body starts with having the right mindset. 
As the Nutrition Director for the Good Housekeeping Institute, I have the privilege of educating millions of readers daily on healthy living. I sort through the research to give you credible and evidence-based guidance that's practical and effective. 

My Background

Prior to my current role at Good Housekeeping, I served as a Senior Oncology Dietitian at The Cancer Institute at St. Francis Hospital and also ran my own nutrition private practice on Long Island. During my time in cancer care, I was a Board Certified Specialist in Oncology Nutrition. 
I completed my Master's in Clinical Nutrition at New York University, and I also have a Bachelor's in Nutritional Sciences from the Pennsylvania State University.  
I'm a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Women's Fitness Specialist, Schwinn Certified Indoor Cycling Instructor, and member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

My approach encourages whole, natural, and real foods, but I think it's equally as important to include your favorite foods into a balanced diet. The best part of what I do is being a motivation and accountability partner for my readers and followers!
