Business Philosophy:
“In the health care world, the most important philosophy to follow is the most simple: just take care of your clients.  They are coming to you for your particular expertise, so treat them with care and kindness. When people tell me it must be so nice to be your own boss all these years, my response is that I am NOT my own boss; I have hundreds of bosses: my clients!”   

Why did you choose to do this?
“I grew up in the hotel business, so food was very central to my growing up (and gourmet food at that).  But with health problems in my family, most notably heart disease and diabetes, I became fully aware that the food was killing us!! I started rather young exploring natural foods and saw what a difference it could make in your health.  But the food needs to be flavorful and good, and hence I became committed as a career to spread that word.”
Why Alexandria?
“My husband lived here when I first met him 19 years ago.  I moved down from Rockville to be with him and then we married.  Alexandria is a wonderful place to live and work.  While I do have clients all over the Metro area, my Alexandria clients are among my most interested and savvy group of clients.  And Alexandrian’s interest in health and food is apparent; just take a look of how many people are out on the wonderful bike path and how jammed the aisles are at Whole Foods.  Alexandria is a fabulous community filled with dynamic people!
