Hey there! I’m Wendy and one of my greatest joys is food. I was raised in the Bronx with family roots in the Dominican Republic. I became a registered dietitian in 2014, wanting to provide quality and culturally competent nutrition care to marginalized communities. I worked in a number of clinics and hospitals in the New York area, before transitioning to remote work in 2018. Let’s just say I was over the commuting.
I currently do consulting as a CDE (Certified Diabetes Educator) for a telehealth startup. I also spend a lot of time on here, creating resources and content for our Food Heaven family. Throughout the years, my love for cooking has continued to grow. Food Heaven has provided me with a platform to share some of my favorite recipes and nutrition resources, and I hope this site inspires you to cultivate an enjoyable and satisfying relationship with food.
