Dr. Nordgren has the unique distinction of being a physician and a trained chef. A leader in the field of Culinary Medicine, she combines medical science and culinary arts to help families make meaningful changes in their lives.

She studied at Dartmouth Medical School and received her culinary training at the Culinary Institute of America.

She practices medicine at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, specializing in childhood cholesterol disorders and obesity. Her passion lies in helping families learn tools and recipes to bring about sustainable, impactful changes in the way they enjoy food.

Outside of her clinic, she can be found at Stanford where she and her colleagues teach Stanford medical students how to cook and eat well. Or she can be found at home, trying new recipes (and perfecting old favorites) on her husband and ever-hungry growing boys.
