Background

Jessica is a registered dietitian who loves food and strives to help her clients fall in love with food too. She has found that so many today are dealing with stress and anxiety related to nutrition, and with positive energy, warmth, and empathy, works side-by-side with them to get back to basics and customize a pattern of healthy eating and lifestyle habits that best fits their individual needs and goals. 

As a Certified Functional Nutrition Informed Professional (CFNIP), she takes a functional nutrition approach to address the underlying cause of disease and nutrition-related health issues. She helps her clients use whole foods and other lifestyle components such as sleep hygiene, stress management, mindfulness, hydration, and exercise to get back into balance and improve health outcomes. She particularly loves working with clients needing help with weight and metabolism, hormone imbalances, food intolerances and allergies, GI health issues, pregnancy and postpartum nutrition, blood sugar management issues such as Pre-diabetes and Diabetes, and general wellness. Jessica is here to support her clients while they take action, and can help them find recipes that delight their tastebuds and preferences while still suiting their nutritional needs, strategize with grocery store shopping, and help them build confidence in cooking! She can also help keep things streamlined and focused when working with families with differing nutritional needs among family members, keeping mealtimes joyful rather than stressful. 

Jessica attended Meredith College where she received her Bachelor of Science in Foods and Nutrition and completed her dietetic internship program. She is a Certified Functional Nutrition Informed Professional (CFNIP). She also holds a CDR Certificate of Training in Obesity for Pediatrics and Adults. She has over 10 years of experience as a dietitian in clinical, community, and food service roles. Since becoming a dietitian, she has found that so many people are seeking nutrition support and advice but unsure where to turn or how to find the right dietitian. She was inspired to start a private practice after an influx of requests in the local community.

In her spare time, Jessica loves to take long walks outside in the sunshine, peruse local farmer's markets, explore outdoor garden spaces, and go to the pool or beach with her husband and 2 kids. She also loves volunteer work, listening to Yacht Rock, and diving into the local library's "Staff Picks" for a good read. And her happy place is a toss up between Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s!
