Hi, I'm Mary!
Growing up on a farm in a small Iowa town, eating was truly a farm-to-fork experience. My mother told me that by the age of three, I would stand on a chair at the kitchen counter so I could help her prepare family meals. By 10, I was preparing French toast for my four siblings and making roast beef with potatoes and carrots, all from our farm, for dinner.
Even though the meals have changed since then, what hasn’t changed is my passion for really good food and the pleasure that comes from cooking and sharing meals with family and friends. I’ve dedicated my life to empowering people through Smart Eating.
As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I provide individual and family nutrition counseling both in my office in Beverly Hills as well as live video conference online. I specialize in finding solutions to longstanding problems with weight control, eating disorders and unhealthy eating behaviors, and also work with individuals struggling with diet-related chronic illnesses.
