As a Registered Dietitian, Christine’s role is to be a resource that never judges her patients and instead positively encourages their journey toward a healthier lifestyle. She assesses patient nutrition, provides medical therapy, and offers nutrition counseling and education.
Christine has worked in the field of nutrition for over 11 years. She earned a degree in health science and dietetics and completed her dietetic internship at the University of Nevada, Reno. She has completed her Certificate in Adult Weight Management, Levels 1 and 2. She worked as a clinical dietitian at several hospitals in Las Vegas and helped develop an outpatient program focused on weight management and diabetes.
Christine is passionate about helping her patients improve their health and quality of life. Of all practitioners in the field of bariatrics, dietitians spend the most time with patients, she says, seeing them regularly over months and even years. She finds it very rewarding to watch the changes — the way her patients dress, how they carry themselves, new jobs, and new activities. Their families and coworkers often become healthier, too, as patients share their knowledge and success with others. She often hears “I wish I would’ve come in sooner!”
Christine loves spending time with her family while staying fit. She enjoys exploring places near and far, as well as cooking and trying new healthy recipes to share with her patients.
