Hello. I am so happy you are here!

I am a licensed and registered dietitian with sixteen years experience working in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and outpatient nutrition counseling. A registered dietitian is a nutrition expert who has completed a four year degree and a supervised dietetic internship. This is a second career for me as I discovered my true passion for nutrition and wellness.

My husband and I live in North Carolina with our three dogs. We have three grown children and a fantastic son in law. They may make an occasional appearance on the blog. Together we enjoy hiking, running, cooking, and going to the beach.

My goal is to help people improve their health, enjoy nourishing foods, and live an active life. I believe in the power of food, and I started this blog to reach as many people as possible. You are not defined by a diagnosis of heart failure. With good medical care and good nutrition, you can manage symptoms, feel better, and spend more time doing the things you love.

Thank you so much for visiting and letting me be a part of your health journey.
