Biography

Sarai is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and a Board Certified Lactation Consultant with Forest Lane Pediatrics of Plano, Dallas and Mesquite, Texas. Sarai received her Bachelor’s degree of Science with a major in Nutrition from Texas Woman’s University in Denton, TX. After college, she worked for over five years for the WIC (Women, Infant and Children) nutrition supplemental program where she shared her knowledge of nutrition and breastfeeding to help families reach their individualized goals. During her time at WIC, she completed the Texas WIC Dietetic Internship and became a Registered Dietitian. She also completed her 1000 hours of supervised lactation specific practice in the small town of Perryton, in the Texas panhandle. In a place with limited access to lactation support, she developed a passion for caring and supporting new mothers during the stressful and exhausting few first few months of parenthood.

Sarai’s goal is to create a culture for her patients that encourages healthy lifestyle habits by learning to enjoy a variety of foods and incorporate regular exercise for the whole family. She truly believes the world would be a better place if all families established regular family meals and just focused on enjoying each other’s company.

Sarai is a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and was the Legislative Coordinator for the Texas North Region during the 2016-2017 year. She is also a member of the International Lactation Consultant Association and the United States Lactation Consultant Association.

Sarai enjoys walking outdoors, yoga and eating all foods. She seriously LOVES all foods! She lives in Frisco with her husband, Zane, her two stepbabies, Savannah and Sterling, and their two senior furbabies.
