Jennifer is passionate about getting a proper perspective on food and diet. Her knowledge of the different aspects of eating, whether it is eating disorders, intuitive eating, or just plain weird-eating is amazing. She goes beyond what to eat and how to eat it and more to the psychology of what keeps us not being "natural" with our food. She also teaches how to get there. She has a saucy attitude, is firm in her convictions and gets fired-up when she talks about the doublespeak of "healthy eating" - and what she says that really means.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern, Registered Dietitian, Licensed Dietitian, and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Jennifer is well qualified to coach on the finer points of what eating involves. She graduated in 2000, with a B.S. in Nutritional Sciences. This degree coupled with 1000 hours of internship enabled her to sit for the RD exam. In 2004, she decided it was important to have a fitness certification as well. She attained her Masters in Professional Counseling and is a Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern with the supervision of Holly Webb, LPC-Supervisor..
Jennifer has worked with clients across the spectrum of weight and wellness: from those with anorexia/eating disorders to chronic dieters to those having gastric bypass surgery. It is her goal to help people remember the natural relationship with food with which we were all born..
