Maxine is a Registered Dietitian, Certified Personal Trainer, and Health Coach. Her first career was as a pastry chef, which is what actually piqued her interest in nutrition—she was passionate about cooking, but longed to have a better understanding of how different foods affect the body. Her curiosity led her to New York University, where she completed her dietetic internship and masters in clinical nutrition. While there, she worked in a variety of settings from hospitals to gyms.
One of the first things people notice about Maxine is that she is truly client-centered and focuses on a positive mindset. She believes in a balanced lifestyle and is dedicated to helping patients find a realistic way to achieve their health goals.
Maxine was born and raised in Maryland and after living in New York City for nine years, she moved to the Bay Area seeking access to nature. She loves anything outdoors, especially stand up paddling, hiking, and running, and dreams of becoming a ski bum. When she is indoors, you will find her baking, crafting, and spending time with her family.
