About Me – For optimal listing appearance, please limit this info to one or two paragraphs.:
I delight in empowering my patients to manage their acute and chronic disease through application of lifestyle interventions such as whole food plant-based diet, exercise, sleep, stress management, avoiding risky behaviors, and connection. I am certified in lifestyle medicine with the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, and I am actively involved in my community by giving presentations on plants as medicine, the Blue Zones, and the role that animal production plays in climate change and the environment. I am particularly interested in outreach to the Hispanic community, as many members have chronic diseases but no access to health insurance and limited resources. I have recently applied for certification as a Food for Life instructor with pcrm.org, with classes taking place in the fall of 2022.
