I met with Samantha for individual nutrition counseling. She was extremely knowledgeable, and understanding of my personal needs. Samantha's "all foods fit" approach helped me to include items I love in my diet, while making sure my body got the nutrition it needed. Samantha talks a lot about having a positive relationship with food, since it is something we interact with throughout every day. I would absolutely recommend working with Samantha to anyone who could use some guidance around eating and wellness.Aug 23, 2016

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I work on a sliding scale based on income. If you would like me to travel to you, additional cost may be required.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I schedule a phone consultation with each of my new clients. We will speak for about 15 minutes so I can understand why they are seeking the services of a Registered Dietitian, and to determine if we would be a good match for one another. If we are, we will schedule a 1 hour appointment where I can assess my client's needs more thoroughly. We will then schedule follow up appointments, which are typically 1 hour.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I earned my Bachelor of Science in Applied Nutrition from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. I completed my dietetic internship, the supervised practice program required to become a Registered Dietitian, through the Morrison Chartwells Distance Education Dietetic Internship in the San Francisco Bay Area. As is required of all RDs, I have also passed the RD exam. My many years of work experience in the field of nutrition have also provided me with training and expertise.
