From a young age, Hillary grew up cooking alongside her grandmother and mother, creating dishes that were both healthy and delicious. Two things stood out. First, Hillary noticed an undeniable link between what we eat and our overall feeling of health and wellness. Second, she realized that delicious and nutritious, healthful foods are not mutually exclusive.
Hillary’s cooking hobby evolved into a passion for nutrition as she pursued formal studies on the biochemistry and medicinal value of foods at Cornell University. Based on this knowledge and training, Hillary has devoted her career to helping others live life to their fullest potential through their food choices.
Hillary completed her undergraduate education at Cornell University in Education and Nutritional Sciences. She went on to complete a master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition at New York University, a dietetic internship at the James J. Peters Bronx VA Medical Center, and board certification in oncology nutrition through the Commission on Dietetic Registration. In addition to her work at Recipe for Health, Hillary is a Senior Dietitian at Northwell Health's Cancer Institute, a consultant for Savor Health, and a regular speaker at nutrition conferences and health seminars.
Hillary has counseled and educated hundreds of people on the impact of our food choices on quality of life and overall health and well-being, with a particular focus on cancer prevention, treatment, and survivorship. She uses a personalized approach with each client to create sustainable and effective change.
