“I was feeling tired and very unhealthy. I needed to get my blood pressure and weight under control. I was getting frustrated with trying to find snacks and meals that would fit in to both a diabetic and kidney disease plan. I was so frustrated that I was skipping meals and snacks.
One of the most helpful tools was the meal plans. When Jen gave me custom meal plans it was great all I had to do was follow it. I always knew what I was going to make. It also saved me money on groceries.
Jen’s food journals also helped in that I did not have to write anything down. All it took was a quick picture and that was it. And every time I had questions or concerns Jen was there. She is easy to get a hold of and willing to work with you no matter what.
Your diet is very important and in the long run what you eat today can drastically affect your health tomorrow. Do not do it on your own. You need someone with the knowledge and passion to help you through it because it can get frustrating. The nice thing is you go from thinking there is nothing you can eat to realizing you can eat and all kinds of foods.
Jen’s passion for my health meant a lot. She went above and beyond. You will learn about your diet and kidney disease, have support and gain better health.”

“Prior to working with Jen, I had a really hard time trying to understand all the components of nutrition. My main goal was to learn the foundation of nutrition so that I would have a better understanding of the everything I put in my body.
Jen was so helpful and such a great teacher. She is very patient, empathetic, and very knowledgeable. Jen took time to explain everything to me and broke it down in a way that is so easy to understand and follow.
I learned a lot from her. We talked about a lot about mindfulness eating, how feelings actually affect your hunger cues, which sounds like common sense but it's so much harder to spot and SO HELPFUL once you realized that you're not actually paying attention to what and when you eat. Jen was very responsive and flexible with her schedule, which I really appreciated given my busy schedule.
I enjoyed all our sessions together and would say that I have achieved my initial goal in working with a registered dietitian. It's super convenient doing Telehealth because you don't have to worry about traffic or commute time! I would definitely recommend Jen for anyone who looking to learn about their own nutrition or just nutrition in general.”

"I was unhappy with my weight, and I was having tingling sensations down my left side. My doctor informed me I'm at the stage that I could begin Diabetes medication. This all made me very down emotionally. I was 250lbs. I knew that I generally cooked good meals, but often ate too large portion sizes. I knew something had to change, but didn't know what.
"By making small, realistic and sustainable changes to my diet and habits, I have been able to loose 25lbs and feel a lot happier. Jen didn't tell me to simply cut out anything, or to make a grand adjustment. This is what has helped me the most - a plan I can stick to. She also was able to probe, through questioning, what I really like to eat, especially in the mornings. Since I would previously always skip breakfasts, and 'make up for it' by eating much more later in the day. Jen has got me back into having and enjoying a good breakfast, which kick-starts my day.
"Definitely give it a try with Jen. She has really helped me, and contributed to a happier and healthier lifestyle. You don't need to be "promising" anything to Jen. Only commit to what you think you can achieve."
“I love how Jen highlights all of the positive progress I am making. She told me not to worry about the times that I fall off track, but rather, make it into a learning experience.
She provides helpful feedback and does not make me feel guilty if I fall off track. Instead she turns things around into a postivie perspective, encouraging me to be more aware of why I do the things I do and how I can prevent situations that lead me off track.”
