With more than 20 years of experience in the field of nutrition and health, Miriam has served in many different areas of nutrition and dietetics including education.

As a dietitian, Miriam has had the experience of working in a variety of settings, but over the past decade, she has directed her focus to geriatric populations in both home health and hospice settings.

Through her consulting services, available at NEDEX for Wellness, she provides nutrition education and/or exercise consultations to help her clients lead a higher quality of life. The programs on offer are tailored to meet the needs of the client and include general health and wellness nutrition education, nutrition education for weight loss, nutrition for individuals with medical conditions such as a history or family history of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, nutrition education for individuals with eating disorders (e.g., anorexia, bulimia), and sports/performance nutrition education.

Miriam consults with her clients to determine their nutritional risks, assesses their needs and priorities, and makes dietary recommendations accordingly to achieve goals considering their economic constraints. She walks her clients through various aspects of health and nutrition that form the crux of a well-rounded diet, including the five food groups; portion sizing; calorie awareness; dealing with feelings; dealing with celebrations; dealing with other people; dining out; weight maintenance; learning to eat again and dealing with the fear of weight; and sports-specific nutrition education for off-season, in-season, and precompetition training.
