What does my credentials mean?

It means I spent way too much time and money in school, so I can legally tell you what to eat! Tara received her bachelor’s degree in dietetics from San Francisco State University. She completed her dietetic internship at James J Peters VA Medical Center and Master's of Science in Clinical Nutrition from New York University. Tara is well-versed when it comes to helping people tackle food; from working with lower socioeconomic Veterans in the Bronx to Manhattanites at Weill Cornell’s IBD Center.

 
 


Why nutrition?

I love literally everything about food - from the history, to the culture, and especially nutrition! My dad was a 'foodie' before it was considered popular and he made sure it was a focal point in all of my childhood memories. I was gnawing on chicken feet (actually a delicious dim sum dish) and went to my first Michelin starred restaurant all before the age of five. I knew I wanted to do something in the science realm (likely this stems from being the daughter of a Chinese mom and Jewish dad), and having a career in dietetics seemed to be the perfect way to blend the two together.
