She is an expert in Food Science and Food Preparation with an emphasis on improving the nutritional and therapeutic value of foods.

A recent partnership with The School of Social Work and Ashalim/Joint Israel, has led to the development of a program that uses nutrition education as a platform to improve family functioning in underprivileged communities.
