Behavioral Nutrition Counseling
Nutrition for Cancer patients
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 behavioral nutrition counseling, bariatric counseling, and nutrition for cancer patients. 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.
