10 Years as a Dietitian

Coordinator of Support Group for Type 1 Diabetes


“Ariela is an amazing dietitian and diabetic educator. She's extremely knowledgeable about all types of diabetes, both through education and lived experience. I love her coaching style. She's compassionate to your needs, and doesn't push you to take steps you're not ready for. She is non-judgmental and honest. In working with her I have always felt heard and supported. She helped me build the confidence to step out of my comfort zone, and make changes I knew I needed to; impacting and improving both my physical and mental health.” -SC
