Melissa has worked in the food and nutrition field for over 16yrs. In that time she has worked with many different populations. She is known for being a safe space for her patients, allowing them to let go of any food shame and begin to own their own goals for their health. In 2015 she returned to school for a Master’s degree in communication with the goal to create nutrition content to bring clarity and food peace to the masses. She is also a food, health, and nutrition writer.
Patient-centered, gentle nutrition with an emphasis on weight inclusivity. Melissa loves to meet her patients where they are to create a happy and healthy food lifestyle that is true to who they are.
Melissa is a beach-loving, book reading, pink-thinking, sparkling-water enthusiast, living and exploring Florida life with her son. She is a foodie at heart and enjoys checking out new restaurants, listening to live music, and dancing. She believes food and nutrition are just as much about culture, comfort, and joy as they are about health and strives to create a counseling environment that embodies that.
