Why Work With Melissa's Healthy Living

You should be able to have your cake and eat it too! In other words, mealtime is more than just about the sum of its nutrients. Food should be enjoyable and celebrated. Skip the feelings of deprivation and embrace a lifestyle filled with energy, peace, and greater fulfillment. Since nutrition is not a one-size-fits-all phenomenon, self-navigating through your health concerns can be overwhelming and confusing.

With my extensive background in clinical, clinical research, education, wellness, and private practice nutrition counseling, I have the expertise to enable your success. With 18 years of teaching functional foods (phytonutrients, vitamins/minerals, and safe supplements), kids nutrition, sports nutrition, and eco-friendly eating (organic, plant-based, and sustainable), I’ve nurtured several specialties. As a passionate life-long learner, staying up to date on the latest nutritional research is essential for me to provide you with the best level of care.

Board
Certified

With the Registered Dietitian Credential (RD/RDN), a graduate degree in Nutrition Education that focused on behavioral change, you have access to expert nutrition counseling and health guidance to address your health concern or disease process.

Attuned

First, my role is to listen to best understand your unique health concerns and goals. Your feelings, symptoms, challenges, history, and insights will always be heard. After all, teamwork makes the dream work!
