Our Co-Founders

Vanessa Rissetto

Vanessa champions the mission of making nutrition care accessible to all as the CEO and co-founder of Culina Health. She is a regular on The Today Show and an audience-favorite on the podcast circuit, sharing her uniquely approachable science-backed perspectives on food.

Tamar Samuels

Tamar's unique approach to personalized nutrition care pulls from her background in clinical nutrition, psychology, and coaching science. She has been featured in Chowhound, HuffPost, Prevention, PopSugar, Women's Health, Shape, Insider, and The Tamron Hall Show.

In 2020, registered dietitians Vanessa Rissetto and Tamar Samuels were running separate private practices when they realized they could make a bigger impact together in one of the fastest-growing, highest-need areas of healthcare. Driven by their shared commitment to providing inclusive and accessible nutrition care, they started Culina Health.
