Meet Our Dietitian
Our licensed dietitian and nutrition therapist heads the dietary staff at Verrazano. With a bachelor of science in foods and nutrition, she focuses on implementing new, exciting meal ideas for individual patients, so eating healthy is a joy, rather than a chore. As an active member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, in addition to her active charity work as a fundraiser to support the American Diabetes Association, she has a special passion for matching delicious foods to every resident’s palate.
Nutritious, Individualized Meal Plans
Because our residents come to Verrazano from a variety of backgrounds, our skilled staff interviews each new resident, while regularly checking in with long-term members of our community. We will speak with you about your likes and dislikes, medications, health conditions, or food allergies that may require you to exclude or include certain foods in your diet. Our goal is to take a closer look at the nutritional content of the food you consume each day so that your diet is as healthy as it is delicious.
Focus on Quality and Care
We dedicate ourselves to maintaining the cleanest kitchen facilities in Staten Island and providing our residents with the highest quality meals, and we strive to provide each member of our Verrazano family with a positive dining experience. We love to see that our residents feel educated and empowered through nutritional consultations. If you have questions about our food services, therapeutic diets, or the way we approach the dietary needs of our residents, please contact us with your questions and personal inquiries to help us better serve you and our future residents.
