Hello, dear reader! So glad you stopped by!
I began The Happiness in Health in early 2010 as a way to dive into the nutrition world while working toward my RD. Since then, I’ve met so many amazing people and worked with companies committed to happy and healthy (hey, that sounds familiar!)
My passion? Helping YOU find your happy and healthy.
I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist, which means I have a four-year degree in dietetics and completed 1200 hours of hands-on training in REAL nutrition. I counsel people on weight loss, diabetes management, eating for energy, picky eating, menu planning, and more. I develop recipes for companies and menus for schools and residential centers. I have a soft spot for working with grocery stores to engage customers and helping grocery store customers appreciate the deliciousness of a new fruit or vegetable. I have a BS in Dietetics from the University of Connecticut, an MBA from Willamette University, and a BA in Physics from Amherst College. (How did that last one get in there? Now you know.) Finally, if I write any more sentences starting with the word “I,” I will turn redder than a beet (incidentally, an excellent veggie), so I’ll stop.

Peter and I have been together for 18 years and married for 12.5 years. We met in Amherst, MA and have since lived in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Illinois, Oregon, and Florida. We’ve traveled around the world and never once lost our luggage.
I’d call that pretty darn special.
In 2018, our daughter Baby E was born. Toddler J is getting used to the new arrival. (And, yes, both kids inherited their dad’s hair.)
In 2020, our daughter Baby H was born. We discovered we could use about 840391 more hands. Kid J and Toddler E are thrilled about having a new sibling to play with while they’re home 24/7. Why is one of the kids upside down? Because that’s 100% what life is like with three kids ages five and under during a global pandemic.
Little Madeline is a Norfolk terrier who has been our constant companion for years. Read about a day in her life here.
