About Stefanie

In the 1980’s my obsession with food and how it impacts health began. After years of schooling, I’m proud to call myself a culinary nutritionist—a professional chef with a Masters of Science in nutrition. Now I help people get healthy and stay healthy by giving them the lowdown on what the fork they’re really eating.

She has been studying food and healing for 30 years, has her Masters of Science in nutrition from Teachers College, Columbia University, is a Certified Nutrition Specialist, Certified Dietitian Nutritionist and is a graduate of the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts.
