She was selected by the editors of the pocket guide to review the latest edition, which was a two-month project. The guide is published by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietitians, the leading organization in the field.
She has also authored a chapter for the 5th edition of the standard text for the field, Pediatric Nutrition in Clinical Care. Her chapter is on nutritional assessment.
