For as long as I can remember, I have been determined to acquire knowledge and transmit it to others. After practicing as a dietitian for nine years, I chose to pursue a medical degree. Women’s healthcare was my core interest which led to becoming an OBGYN.14 years of training and practicing as an OBGYN has opened up a truly amazing lens into life and our anatomy. Going through these experiences led me back to my roots to become certified as a Culinary Medicine Specialist. I recognized that there was a key connection missing in much of women’s healthcare between treating symptoms and proper nutritional guidance. More specifically, I came upon many women and people with ovaries who were not being properly diagnosed or treated for their PCOS symptoms. PCOS is chronic. Each person's experience with PCOS is unique, and the impact it has on their physical and emotional well-being can be profound. PCOS can be with a person for life. Therefore, it is of utmost importance for us to educate ourselves on how it affects our bodies and how it can be managed. Through my unique blend of acquired knowledge, my goal is to extend the boundaries of PCOS care.
