Physicians and medical groups all over the world are shifting more towards recommending medical diets and healthier lifestyle choices either in combination or in lieu of medications. However, majority of the time these changes can be very drastic and difficult to comply to; especially in the pediatric population. My role as Medical Chef Educator is to help make these diet changes more feasible for everyday compliance and guide you with recipes that children genuinely enjoying eating.
I am a professionally trained chef with a BS in Culinary Management from the Art Institutes of Philadelphia. At Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, I work with the Department of Clinical Nutrition to provide care for families in an array of medically prescribed diets. I have a specialization in the ketogenic diet(s), which I have over 6 years experience as part of the Dietary Treatment Program of Epilepsy and Other Neurological Disorders. Other diets that I have developed recipes for include but are not limited to: Renal Diet, Specific Carbohydrate Diet, Oncology Symptom Relief, Bone Health, Blenderized Tube Feeds, and Allergy.

Patient Experience Ratings
About the Patient Experience Rating System
The Patient Experience Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown above from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
We are committed to true transparency. However, to ensure the comments are fair and correctly attributed, we review each one before posting to the website. We exclude entire comments that disclose patient's protected health information, are off-topic, or include other confidential or inappropriate content. Comments will appear on provider bios only if providers have a minimum number of comments.
Comments are shared internally for education purposes to ensure that we are doing our very best for the patients and families for whom we are privileged to care.
The comments are submitted by patients and families and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not reflect the views of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
