She was the primary investigator on a study conducted with Dr. Cynthia Bulik at the UNC Center for Excellence in Eating Disorders. Her study findings, published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders, evaluated the consensus on nutrition counseling practices among registered dietitians treating individuals with anorexia nervosa.
Anne is a Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian (CEDRD) through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP).

Anne is passionate about helping young people develop a positive relationship with food. She has led cooking and nutrition classes for children that explore nutritional science while celebrating the joy of preparing and sharing food.
“In a culture where we are constantly bombarded with misinformation about food, the essential act of nourishing the body becomes complicated, and the joy of eating is easily replaced with fear. I use a non-diet, evidence-informed approach to nutrition therapy, aiming to bring the joy of eating back to the table. A truly healthy relationship with food is one that is non-restrictive, that includes all foods and nutrients, and that is based on internal hunger/fullness cues. Full recovery is possible and I am very excited to help you make the first steps toward reclaiming a positive relationship with food.” – Anne
