Veronica's Story

 

Hi Everyone!

My name is Veronica and I am passionate about food, nutrition, and education. As a former teacher, I decided to change careers when I discovered how important nutrition is to our health and wellness. 

​It all started when one of my high school students asked me how much sugar was in a sugar sweetened tall iced tea. Of course I made a math problem out of it, but we discovered it was over 3 days worth of added sugar.  I soon discovered that many of my students had families facing chronic health diseases associated with nutrition, and I wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. 

 

This sparked my passion to helping others learn about nutrition and eating best for our health and wellness. Nutrition is not only about fighting chronic diseases, but it also is just about feeling your best everyday.

I provide nutrition counseling to individuals and  specialize in weight management counseling, bariatric counseling, and diabetes management.  I performed my dietetic internship at the top ranked cancer treatment center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in New York City and I trained and worked as a Bariatric Registered Dietitian at the second largest center for bariatric surgeries in the US, at Montefiore Medical Center in NYC.

 

Thank you for visiting my website and I hope to get to know you soon.

Sara's Story

Hi Everyone!

My name is Sara and I’ve been a Registered Dietitian for over 10 years. I’ve worked in many different nutrition settings including hospital inpatient and outpatient, where I’ve worked with a variety of patients with multiple conditions including heart disease, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, polycystic ovary syndrome, cancer, and bariatric surgery.

 

Prior to joining Upbeet Nutrition, I served as a United States Navy Dietitian for 7 years where I participated in two humanitarian assistance deployments. I love helping others make positive life changes through nutrition.

I’m originally from Maine, however currently live in North Carolina. I did my undergraduate degree at the University of Maine and my Master’s degree at Northeastern University. 

 

I look forward to working with you in the future.
