Hi, I’m Emily - thanks for visiting my page! I am a registered dietitian and nutrition communications expert with over ten years of experience in the food and nutrition industry.

 

I specialize in translating nutrition science and industry trends into communications strategies, consumer content, claims, product innovations, and external engagement programs for the health-focused brands in food and nutrition industry. I produce high quality work that is credible, grounded in science, and compliant with FDA and FTC regulations.   

 

Most importantly, I am committed to working in the best interests of public health. I take a positive approach to food and I think that eating well is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves.

 

In my free time I am likely to be found playing in the kitchen or with my nose stuck in a cookbook. Lucky for me, these things count as “work!” Otherwise, I am nature-loving, yoga-practicing, master-gardener-wannabe with a long list of favorite people, places, and things. 

 

Just for fun, visit the recipes page for links to some of my favorite dishes, or check out my blog for content. Enjoy!

Every dietitian is a nutritionist, but not every nutritionist is a dietitian!
