Hi there! I am a Registered Dietitian by day, and food experimenter in the kitchen by night, and this is my foodie blog. I am all about food and nutrition. Whether it is practicing my love of nutrition by day educating clients in the clinical setting or by in my leisure time writing new recipes, cooking and baking. On nights and weekends I enjoy focusing on fine tuning healthy recipes and discovering new foods and trends at local markets.
I love to travel, run marathons, and half marathons in different cities. When I travel, I like to take cooking classes to learn the local cuisine and culture.
After I earned my Bachelors of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics degree from Kent State University, I moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for my Dietetic Internship at Adagio Health. Later I obtained my Masters in Business Administration with a focus in Healthcare from Waynesburg University. I have been practicing as a registered dietitian for the last 10 years in a community hosptial setting, and as a Clinical Nurtition Manager for the last 8 years. I am also a Board Member on the Adagio Health Dietetic Internship Advisory Board and serve as a mentor on the board.
Recently, I fulfilled one of my life goals of relocating to the Eastern North Carolina region in the fall of 2016.
In May 2016, I completed the Certificate of Training in Adult Weight Management through the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
I love sharing recipes so much I started A Pinch of Luv Food Blog in 2012. Since 2013, I have been a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home Magazine. I have had several of my recipes published in Taste of Home Magazine and Simple and Delicious Magazine. Most recently I was published in Taste of Home, 2016 Holiday & Celebrations Cookbook.
I will be posting new recipes weekly so stay tuned.
