Victoria has twenty years of experience as a clinical dietitian and nutrition therapist. Her philosophy is rooted in teaching clients to trust the wisdom of their own bodies ultimately allowing for healing, recovery, and outstanding performances. She considers food integral to cultivating connection, joy, and community and believes that attending to issues of social justice and the environment are essential in nutrition practice.
She has coached athletes from just about every sport having spent 8 years as the sports dietitian for Princeton University’s 38 DI teams. She works with youth, amateur age-group, professional, National, and Olympic level athletes from a wide variety of sports including rowing, ice hockey, basketball, football, soccer, track and field and endurance sports. She has specialised expertise working with weight class athletes in combat arts, rowing, middle-distance track and other sports where power to weight ratio is emphasised. Additionally, she is a nationally recognized provider in the care of athletes of all genders suffering from relative energy deficiency, overtraining syndrome, and the athlete triad.
In her nutrition therapy practice, she provides care for anyone (including athletes and performing artists) struggling with eating disorders and other eating and exercise-related concerns through individual, group, and family nutrition therapy in a supportive, inclusive, and non-judgemental atmosphere. All are welcome.
Victoria is a registered and licensed dietitian who holds a bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition from Colorado State University and completed her dietetic internship at Hines VA Hospital in Hines, IL. She obtained a Master of Science degree in Biology at the University of Nebraska where she focused on ecology and environmental science.

When not at work, you can find her in the garden tending to her chickens and vegetables or in the kitchen cooking, making jam, or canning her favorite seasonal fruits and veggies. She also loves to hike, bike, and horseback ride and thoroughly enjoys riding motorcycles with her husband whenever they can. She may also have the best dog EVER.
"Victoria taught me so much. She helped me change the way I think about food and my body completely." "Working with Victoria made staying in my sport possible." "I think way less about food and have greater self-acceptance and appreciation for what my body is capable of." "I'm running again and I feel so much better!"
