Adult and Geriatric Dietitian

While currently working in rehabilitation and long-term care, Aminah has recently worked with groups of women as a group facilitator and nutrition counselor to provide up to date nutrition information while addressing physical activity, women’s issues, barriers to change, and self-esteem. Aminah’s focus is on providing medical nutrition therapy and individualized diet education for patients with diabetes, heart disease, kidney and liver disease, obesity, and malnutrition. Her teaching methods emphasize mindful eating and focusing on moderation rather than food elimination. Aminah’s areas of interest include community nutrition, healthy eating on a budget, and recipe modification.

“As a practicing dietitian and a mother, I understand how difficult it can be to choose nutritious foods in a society where cheap, filling, and easy to eat foods of poor nutritional value are always at our fingertips. I also understand that taking the time to focus on what we eat, how we eat, and why we eat can improve health and quality of life for ourselves and our families. I am passionate about whole health for the body, mind, and soul and I believe that healthy, practical, and realistic eating habits are a huge part of attaining an overall state of wellbeing. I am always excited to work with individuals and families to help them improve their eating habits and meet their personal nutrition goals.”
