THANK YOU NINA MY WONDERFUL INTERN FOR ALL THE WORK ON THE RECIPES AND ARTICLE ON GUT HEALTH!  THEY WILL BE POSTED ASAP.

I HAVE BEEN GIVEN AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE AN OFFICE WITH DR JACKIE MEYERS- A FABULOUS LOCAL THERAPIST AS SHE DECREASES HER HOURS TO WORK ON HER YOGA PRACTICE.

WE OVERLOOK THE DETROIT RIVER AND CAN SEE CANADA FROM THE WINDOW.  SO BEAUTIFUL!

AND IT’S ONLY 1 MILE FROM HOME- 4 MINUTE DRIVE.  NO TRAINS TO GET CAUGHT BY

CAN’T BEAT THAT!!!

SO MY NEW OFFICE ADDRESS IS 2955 BIDDLE AVE, SUITE 200 WYANDOTTE, MI 48192

Please don’t use any addresses floating around google!!! Its WRONG!!!!

There is a map on my site here

CONTINUED GREETINGS TO MY NEW DISTANCE CLIENTS FROM   COR, ENCOR, ACORN and VISION for YOU.

I AM NOT TEACHING COLLEGE THIS SEMESTER
More on my teaching below 

 If you email me…..And it takes more than a two to three days to get back to you then TEXT me or CALL me   734-502-8264!!!!!   I’m still not trusting my email 100%. Those of you who know me know how careful (ie anal) I am about communication!!!  If you feel something is taking too long, don’t WAIT!  My web people are still trying to figure it out.

Also if you email me a client questionnaire please text or call me right away so I have the heads up!

For those of you who have been with me for a long time and ask about my dogs– I still have my other buddies pictures posted.  Even though they aren’t on this plane anymore they still live in spirit

Yes that creepy photo is me on Halloween!  I was “goth student who pulled too many all nighters studying” even my best friends did not recognize me.  It was hilarious. Had to wash my face and hair 4 times to get all the goop off!

I have updated some handouts and used the words “abstinent eating: because I have to legally change some wording on things. If there is something you knew was there before and isn’t not, just email me and I will send it to you.  Everything should all be reposted soon. ☺  Bobbie Hamel of UB associates, my web gal is  phenomenal! Let me know if you can’t pull something up

I will be adding a new icon to my site just for diabetes.  I have so many handouts I’ve created I’d like to keep them all in one place on my site as I update things. AND ESPECIALLY ALL THE CONFERENCES AND WEBINARS I HAVE DONE.  MY HEAD IS SPINNING WITH IDEAS!!!!

Continuous thanks to my interns  (Future RDs!) for her behind the scenes work too.   You all help me keep my sanity! (and they have way better handwriting than me! and make my handouts look pretty)  

My teaching – It’s a 3 credit required class for all nursing students and allied health fields.  I have a lot of stories and situations I’m able to share with them it is going very well. I had wanted to teach college for a while now, so it’s a dream come true.  I have taught for 20th semesters already. I hope my students feel the same way ☺  Thank you for your love notes on the back of the final exams. 

The HEA 1510 ICON on my website is for my students.  I will be posting their study guides and info there.
