Welcome! I’m Sarah. I live in the beautiful midcoast area of Maine with my husband and son. You’re probably on this page because you’d like to know more about me. If you want to know more about what I can do for you, go here.
I first became interested in studying nutrition when my infant son was diagnosed with a food allergy. As a nursing mother, I had to modify my diet, using only information that I could find myself. At the time, I thought that more resources for this type of situation would be really helpful. All I wanted to do was feed my baby and not hate the food I was eating, and I was sure there were other mothers just like me.
Several years later, while teaching fitness classes, I was asked many nutrition questions that were outside my scope of practice as a fitness professional. As I looked for ways that I could responsibly help my clients, I came across a range of nutrition certificates and degree programs. I remembered the days when I had wanted to show other mothers that they could in fact eat in a way that supported their babies’ needs as well as satisfy their own. If I wanted to help people with lots of different issues, becoming a registered dietitian nutritionist was the perfect path to take.
So, for five years I attended classes and completed a comprehensive internship program. When I passed the registration examination for dietitians, I started my private practice. And here we are! My passion is helping clients have the best possible relationship with food. Please visit my Services page for information on what I do and the FAQ if you're interested.
