About Christianna

My goal is to make healthy eating for chronic kidney disease as simple as possible for you and your family. I’m a mom, too, so I understand the complexities of feeding a tiny human.

I’ve loved cooking and baking since childhood. I grew up in Guilford, CT on the apron strings of my grandmother Connie, the food service director at my high school. She taught me how to make people happy with food. 

Known for my practical, relatable and dynamic style, I am to make you feel comfortable and not judged –like you are dinner guest in my home.

I live with husband and son in Milford, CT, a picturesque coastal city 60 miles outside of New York City and even closer to New Haven, the home of the best pizza in country.

My Credentials
Why Choose Me?

My unique background combines nutrition, culinary arts and psychology to bring you innovative solutions to complex nutrition problems. I’m also a mom.

I am a Registered Dietitian with licenses/certifications in Minnesota and Connecticut. I hold a MS degree in Nutrition Science from Hunter College. I completed my dietetic internship (1200+ supervised practice hours) with Morrison Healthcare and completed my clinical rounds at Mount Sinai Hospital.

I love teaching people how to cook. I spent 3 years as a Chef Instructor at Sur La Table. I’ve worked in corporate dining for five years during which time I’ve managed culinary education programs and created healthy menus and recipes for variety of clients.

I leverage my background in psychology to help my clients develop healthy habits. I hold an M.A Organizational Psychology from Teachers College, Columbia University and B.A Psychology from Wagner College.

I honed my skills as a generalist during my time as a clinical dietitian at Norwalk Hospital. This helped me find my passion for and build my confidence to specialize in the intersection of renal-cardiac-metabolic nutrition.

You did a WONDERFUL job! The added information you gave about the nutritional value of the pulses was so helpful and added these details so naturally!! You were so relaxed and chatty and this is the PERFECT way to cook on camera.
