Julie’s interest in health began in earnest as the role of food as medicine became very clear during her first pregnancy and then with her first child. Her colicky newborn graphically illustrated the concept that what you eat can make a huge difference in how you feel and what your body can tolerate. With each new family member the message became more clear: food matters! After serving as her family’s nutritionist for over a decade, Julie decided to combine her passion for food, gift for healing and desire to help others through nutrition.
Julie holds a B.S. in Resource Economics from Cornell University and a Masters of Science in Integrative Health and Nutrition from Maryland University of Integrative Health. She is a Licensed Dietician Nutritionist (LDN) in Maryland, a Licensed Nutritionist in D.C. and a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS).
