Marisa is a firm believer that eating well for your health does not need to be expensive or time-consuming. She became passionate about nutrition after 8 years of working in public relations for healthcare companies. At work, she discovered that nutrition was a huge missing link for so many of the chronically ill members her company served. Meanwhile, she found it challenging to nourish herself while working nonstop. She struggled with digestive issues and low energy. Slowly, She learned how to eat fresh, less-processed foods on-the go, and felt better, not just physically, but mentally as well. From then on, it became her mission to help support people in feeling their best through good nutrition.
Marisa completed her clinical training at NYU Langone Medical Center and is a Masters Degree candidate in Clinical Nutrition from New York University. She completed her undergraduate degree in journalism at Northwestern University. Her work in private practice also includes treatment of disordered eating, sustainable weight loss, GI disorders, PCOS, and women's health.
In her spare time, Marisa loves to discover new food products, and quick, delicious recipes that make eating well effortless. She lives in New York, NY with her husband, Ben.
