About the Provider

Throughout her studies, Jen interned at a variety of locations, including both community and clinical settings. She spent one year interning with the Comprehensive Weight Control Program at WESTMED, where she had the opportunity to counsel patients along with the staff.

As someone who enjoys preparing food, cooking and eating, Jen’s goal is to educate patients regarding healthy eating in a way that promotes general well being and optimal lifestyle. Jen believes that there is a dynamic relationship between the use of drug therapy, nutrition counseling and emotional support throughout the weight loss and maintenance processes and, as such, will play an integral role in the existing weight loss program by assisting clients with individualized patient driven nutrition plans. She firmly believes that setting short term goals and celebrating each accomplishment is a marker for long term success.
