Nora believes healthy eating is all about balance and moderation. She promotes the philosophy of eating "eighty-twenty": choosing healthy, nutrient dense foods eighty percent of the time and allowing some indulgence twenty percent of the time. Placing an emphasis on wholesome, nutritious foods is her realistic approach to helping clients achieve a healthy lifestyle.
During her time at the Hines VA Hospital, she worked in a variety of settings including acute-care, long-term care, outpatient counseling, wellness facilities and home health care. When working with clients, Nora tailors nutrition education to each individual to achieve the best results with long-term success. In addition to individual nutrition counseling experience, she enjoys community outreach through public speaking engagements on various nutrition topics including: Healthy Summer Eating, Obesity and Behavior, Heart Healthy Living, Weight Management, and Diabetes Basics.
