Thank you for visiting my site! I'm a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with a PhD in Public Health. I'm a retired Assistant Professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham where I got to do a lot of fun things like teach students about nutrition and media, educate patients in the UAB Osteoporosis Prevention and Treatment Clinic, and teach counseling/motivational interviewing. I am a recent survivor of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and I often write about it in my blog. It's a continuing struggle to recover from the treatment effects but what choice do I have except to keep going? 


If you live near Birmingham, you can watch my weekly nutrition and health segment on WBRC's Good Day Alabama every Tuesday morning. I also act in several of our local theatres whenever I get the chance. Please read my blogs and if you like what you read, become a subscriber!
