Pregnancy & Lactation
Wellness and Weight Management
I was born in Argentina, and I moved to the United States when I was 18 years old. I played professional and NCAA Division 1 tennis. My entire life was planned around the sport and I was always exposed to multiple dietitians because nutrition in tennis, as in any other sport, is key for performance.
When I was 18 years old, I got offered a full scholarship to play NCAA Division I College Tennis at Florida International University. I played four years of College Tennis and I worked one year as a graduated Assistant Coach for the team.
At Florida International University (FIU), I got a double major in Psychology (B.S) with a speciality in Behavior Analysis and in Dietetics and Nutrition (B.S). I further completed my internship at Baptist Health Hospital and my Masters in Dietetics and Nutrition at FIU as well. Right off school, I started working at Jackson Memorial Hospital/Holtz Children's Hospital where I currently work as Pediatric/Neonatal Dietitian. I become a Certified Nutrition Support Specialist and a Lactation Consultant. Furthermore, I got a Bachelors degree in Nursing, and my Registered Nurse License.
I currently cover the Genetics Outpatient Department for the University of Miami. I have extensive experience in managing Inherited Inborn Errors of Metabolism and Ketogenic Diets. This year, I became certified as a Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) and I am also an ISAK Level 1 anthropometric professional. Last but not least, I am currently a candidate for the International Olympic Committee Sports Nutrition Diploma (Class 2023).
While completing all this clinical education, with tennis not been part of my life anymore, and the need to be connected to sports, I started to compete in Ironman races, from short to long distances. While growing in this new sport, I discovered there was a huge nutrition education gap that needed to be filled, and that is how MVNUTRITION started.
It started out of that passion to help others, athletes and no athletes to build a better relationship with food, to show them that they can accomplish anything they want, and to create a healthier community.
