Vanessa Rissetto has always approached nutrition from an outsider's perspective because, in many ways, she is one. As CEO and Co-Founder of Culina Health, Vanessa's priority is making clinical nutrition care inclusive and accessible.
Vanessa received a Master’s in Science in Marketing from New York University and later returned to NYU to complete her Dietetic Internship through their Nutrition and Food Studies Program at Mount Sinai Hospital. She went on to serve as Senior Dietitian and Director of
Dietetic Internships at NYU. Vanessa is certified in Adult Weight Management (Levels I & II) by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Vanessa has been featured in The New York Times, Bon Appetit, Women's Health, Shape, Good Housekeeping, Men's Health, Prevention, PopSugar, Well+Good, Refinery29, INSIDER, and Allure. She was tapped by ESSENCE as one of the "Black Female Nutritionists Who Will Change the Way You Think About Food," by Byrdie as one of the "Dietitians Carving Out Space for Black People in the Nutrition Industry," and on NPR as "A Black Dietitian Wants to Close the Nutrition Gap."
