Hey, this is Janice! I am a registered dietitian, currently living in Chicago. I help people achieve wellness through finding satisfaction in eating and managing disease conditions with a mind-body approach.
My own journey to mind-body wellness didn't come easy.
Under high stress of school and work, I slowly neglected my body cues and my health deteriorated. I binge ate chips when I was stressful. I couldn't sleep well because I worried about my grades and work performances. In 2015, my doctor told me I suffered from emotional eating, had Irritable Bowel Disease and pre-diabetes.
My personal struggles lead me to where I am today - I want to support you through obstacles and find peace with your body and mind.
We will be on this journey to discover your body - your likes and dislikes on food and exercise, your disease-related constraints and your mental health. I use a non-diet and Health At Every Size approach, which is personalized and specific to your health needs. I have expertise in managing chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and gut disorders.
Let's chow with mindfulness and live with happiness.
I completed my Bachelor in Science in Dietetics at University of California, Berkeley in 2011. I obtained my Master of Science in Nutrition at Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and completed my dietetic internship at Tufts Medical Center in Boston in 2013.
I began my career as a clinical dietitian in 2013 and worked at acute care hospitals, long term care facilities and outpatient clinics. I had experience working with conditions including diabetes, renal disease, heart disease, malnutrition and picky eating for children.
