Tiffany completed her Dietetic Internship and Master’s in Nutrition and Dietetics at Northern Illinois University, and also holds a Certificate of Graduate Study in Eating Disorders and Obesity from Northern Illinois University.
Tiffany loves being able to support clients along their journeys of working through food and body image challenges. Tiffany recognizes that changing eating disorder behaviors can feel incredibly daunting for clients, and she supports clients through this process by providing an accepting, non-judgmental environment. One of the aspects that Tiffany enjoys most when working with clients is being able to provide the “why” behind each recommendation. Tiffany believes that it is important to provide evidence-based, scientific basis for recommendations given that even difficult nutrition recommendations can feel just a little bit more doable when one knows why the recommendation is being made. Tiffany has seen time and time again that it is much more likely for clients to be able to take difficult steps necessary to consume the nutrients needed in a consistent, adequate manner needed to thrive, when one knows how these nutrients are going to benefit their brain, muscles, immune system, hormones, gut microbiome diversity, and digestion.
In addition to her 1:1 client work, Tiffany is passionate about increasing eating disorder awareness among the local community. Tiffany served as the past Education Chair for the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) San Diego Chapter from 2017-2019. In addition to community service, Tiffany has frequently written and been quoted in articles published on online publication platforms such as The Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun Times, Food & Nutrition Magazine published by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and WellSeek on topics related to nutrition science and eating disorder recovery.
