When I write or make media appearances, I tell stories based on my experiences and my professional education. I am not slanting my words for money or in exchange for goods. My opinions are my own.

If  I discuss a food, product, restaurant, business or resource, my comments are based on my experience. Those experiences may come about because I am sent food or product samples, invited to  restaurants or sent on educational trips. My experiences may be positive or negative. I will not compromise my professional integrity when asked about these experiences.

In the case that I am paid by  a company or organization to provide them with content, expertise, advice or representation in public, I will disclose the relationship. If and when I write about or am asked about these companies or their products, I will make it clear and transparent.

Companies and organizations occasionally approach me to learn more about them or their products. If after my experience, I love the product(s) and the company or organization asks me to represent them in some way or work with them on a paid project, I may agree.

Project examples may include:
Making a television or video appearance that involves cooking with, displaying or discussing their product.

Writing an article or blog post (my opinions remain my own and any promotion of it would include disclosure),


Writing or developing a fact-based toolkit for Supermarket/Retail Dietitians which may include product or company branding.

Reviewing content and providing feedback.


My philosophy is simple. I choose not to work on paid projects that highlight food products that I would not cook with, eat myself or feed to my family.  My integrity as a nutrition professional is what I offer to my audience that hears or reads my words.
