Background

Jessi Kilbarger, MS, RD, LD is a Registered Dietitian and owner of Jessi Lynn Nutrition, LLC. She is a graduate of Ohio University and holds advanced certification in the field of diabetes intervention from this university.

She completed her master’s degree and dietetic internship at the Ohio State University where she focused on cancer survivor nutrition and their perception of organic versus conventionally grown produce. This research is published in the journal of Supportive Care in Cancer.

Based on this background, one might assume Jessi focuses on diabetes or cancer nutrition but ironically, that is not where her career landed her! Jessi found her passion in the nutrition field post-masters degree when she took a job at a small outpatient facility that treated individuals diagnosed with Eating Disorders.

In this space Jessi found her true calling and built her personal nutrition philosophy from the ground up. She found that it is so easy to get caught up in diet culture-base expectations around food, our bodies, and our relationship with exercise. In this setting, she saw the true horrors of what diet culture can do to one’s relationship with their own body. Instead of prescribing diet regimens and focusing on counting numbers on labels, Jessi focuses on each client as the whole human they are. We defocus that number on the scale and dive into lifestyle, support systems, mental health, food access, etc. as all of these factors play a role in one's nutritional health. In her work she individualizes every session to ensure the changes being made are sustainable and realistic.

Jessi primarily treats those diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, Orthorexia, and those generally looking to heal their relationship with food. Along her career path she has also developed special interests in allergy/food intolerances, digestive health, navigating sports/exercise in recovery from an Eating Disorder.

She treats those who are 18+ years old and welcomes all gender identities in her practice.

When she isn’t working, Jessi enjoys seeing live music, taking her dog exploring, and reading a good mystery or fantasy novel.
