Helping the elderly by providing geriatric nutrition resources to families and caregivers.

Welcome to The Geriatric Dietitian! We’re so glad you are here. 😊

The Geriatric Dietitian believes everyone deserves access to a geriatric nutritionist. A specialist in nutrition for older adults who can support you as you support them.  Therefore, The Geriatric Dietitian offers evidenced-based, easy to understand nutrition and general health information- all specific to the older adult. Thank you for visiting and for your support!

I am a geriatric dietitian, writer, speaker, mentor, and leader.

Thank you for visiting! I am passionate about the field of nutrition and the care of older adults in our communities. I have over 10 years of experience as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist working with the elderly. 

As a volunteer leader in my field I have served in a variety of roles. For instance, I have served as the President of the Oregon Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Chair of the Healthy Aging Dietetic Practice Group

I am a Fellow of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. And as a geriatric nutritionist, I have been a Board Certified Specialist in Gerontological Nutrition (CSG) since 2013.  But most importantly, I love to continually learn and to help others to grow. 

My vision is a world where everyone has access to a geriatric dietitian. Or at least access to good nutrition information specific to older adults. I want the world to approach old age and end of life with knowledge, empowerment, and hope. 

In other words, the end of life deserves a much dignity, love, and respect as every other stage of life. I am appreciative of those who came before me. And above all, I am in awe of the everyday caregiver who supports our older adults as they near end of life.

I am so appreciative of your support and look forward to the opportunity to further serve you. Please, be sure to get your copy of The 10 Top Resources for Senior Nutrition. Thank you!!
