Work With Jen
“My GYN recommended I work with a dietitian and that’s when I met Jen. Working together for a few months, Jen got me on the path to recovery and eventually wellness.”
“I cannot believe the difference in my eating habits, primarily to my sugar cravings. I have NONE. It is amazing -- like magic.”
- S. G.
Jen's love affair with nutrition started at a young age. She attributes this to being raised with the values of good food and nourishment being at the forefront of health. During her college years, she struggled to eat well and gained substantial weight. Her battles with body image began and so did her crash dieting cycles.
Tired of counting calories and restrictive earth she revisited the healthy habits she was raised with and quickly learned that fueling herself with a nutrient-dense whole-food diet reaped many more rewards than the calorie-controlled diets she experimented with.
After earning her B.S. in Biology, Jen continued on her path to becoming an RDN by studying dietetics at New York University and doing her dietetic internship at New York-Presbyterian Hospital - Weill Cornell Medicine. It wasn't until her Lyme’s Disease diagnosis that she discovered Functional Medicine. Through targeted medication, supplements, and of course, diet, she was on the path to reclaiming her health. Her life was so transformed that she pursued her master's degree in Integrative and Functional Nutrition.
While Jen has had the privilege to work at some of the country's leading institutions for health and wellness, it is her own health journey that shaped how she supports her clients the most. She understands the overwhelm and exhaustion that goes into trying to live a fulfilling life when the basics of self-care seem so out of grasp. And she also knows that food can be healing on so many levels. Through a perfect blend of nutrition science and lifestyle design, she supports her clients on their own unique path to wellness.
