Cristina has a very calm demeanor and pays great attention to detail. She will ask you specific questions to really get to know you better before making personalized recommendations.
Cristina is a Registered Dietitian and Associate Dietitian with NY Nutrition Group. Before diving into nutrition, Cristina followed the pre-medical track at Johns Hopkins University in preparation for medical school. She quickly realized her passion for, and commitment to, nutrition sciences. She changed directions and earned a Master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition at New York University. This career shift allowed her to practice what she truly believes: the body is capable of healing itself when given the proper nourishment and medications are not always the answer.
Cristina has gained experience in the field in various positions and aside from seeing patients at NYNG, she also supports Teladoc diabetic members as a Diabetes Response Specialist.

Cristina firmly believes in educating others to empower them to live healthier lives. She delivers a science-based approach that guides her patients to be less reliant on medications. She also believes in a whole-body approach to health and that it can be achieved not only through proper nutrition, but also through certain self-care practices.
