My Philosophy of Care

My approach is size-neutral/celebratory with regard to the nutrition care I provide. My role is to offer information on specific topics that a patient wants addressed, and anyone may explore or discard whatever works for them. My patients can expect that I will work with them to discover foods, recipes, preparation styles that are relevant, interesting or appropriate for them, their needs and their tastes. I also consider it an important part of my work to take on any other providers that a patient may engage in fat harassment or not maintain standards of care as a result of body size. I will read all provider notes to ensure that there are no identifiable signs of blame imposed upon the patient due to size or any other factors and will address other providers for explanation if a patient consents. I will advocate for a patient with other providers should my patient ask, on any topic.

About Me & My Practice

I started my professional education in 'public health nutrition' and not 'nutrition science' because I always thought nutritionists were aggressively weight driven, and judgmental and I wanted to work on policy, not shame people into hating food. When I picked up the first textbook for a nutrition class course requirement, however, I found tucked away in a two inch by two inch corner of a page, a little blurb that stated that some nutritionists 'believe in HAES®.' It was an 'aha' moment that eventually led me to become a nutritionist. I have worked inpatient and in outpatient hospital-affiliated clinics primarily. Fatphobia is rampant in these settings, and indoctrinated into every incoming medical resident. It is extremely rare for a patient to make it out of the hospital or a doctor's appointment without getting instructed to lose weight by any means necessary. As a preceptor for nutrition interns as well as among every peer group of dietitians I have worked with, I have presented HAES® data and warned them of the shattering of trust that can occur if they judge a person's health or personality or anything else with the bias that weight loss is a panacea. I have created anti-fatphobic presentations for medical professionals and occasionally been permitted to present the entire way through! And finally, as a white woman, I have read, followed and continue to read a follow the work of the black women who first addressed the racism inherent in medical fatphobia.

Accessibility Considerations

In my practice practice, my services are virtual. In the hospital clinic where I work, my patients do not get their vitals or weight checked without request and interpretation is available for all languages including ASL.
