My name is Lilly, I am a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist (RDN) and a Certified Diabetes Care & Education Specialist (CDCES). I spent most of my career educating individuals on diabetes management, cardiovascular diseases, weight management, renal disease, disease prevention, and helping people make lifestyle changes to live healthfully. I recently completed an MS degree in Diabetes Education and Management at Teachers College Columbia

University, which further enhanced my skills and knowledge in assisting individuals with diabetes care.


I am passionate about nutrition health and wellness. With more than 10 years of experience in multicultural nutrition counseling, I help individuals to continue to enjoy their ethnic foods but make healthier choices to suit their dietary needs and lifestyle. I enjoy cooking, reading, meditating, and taking long walks around my surrounding area. I believe in giving back to my community and feel empowered when people's health and physical needs are being met.

I am a diabetes contributor to a magazine called Home Health Home Healthcare Now and have published 2 articles; African American Spirituality and Diabetes Self-Care, and Putting People First.
