About Me

 JenniferLaurence

 

As far as nutrition goes, ‘healthy eating’ is a subjective term. I believe that nutrition is more then just calories in/calories out. The quality of your food does matter. Knowing what is in your food (and what is not) is vitally necessary for optimizing your health. I want to teach you how to view food as a means of fuel, energy, and nourishment. I want to teach you how to feel your best.

Integrative and functional nutrition is my true passion. I like to help my clients achieve their goals by using an individualized holistic approach that includes a detailed review of your overall health and diet history in order to identify the root cause. In addition to discussing history, my sessions often include a full nutrition evaluation, discussion about your lifestyle including exercise, stress management and sleep, a review of labs, and supplement recommendations if needed. I have never subscribed to the ‘one size fits all’ approach, so I tailor each session to meet a client’s specific needs.

I really enjoy teaching my clients how to change their eating habits in order to reach their goals and achieve results.

Work with me. Allow me to help you feel your best. I can help you reset, recharge, renew, get motivated, and stay motivated.

I am excited for our journey to begin!

What is an RD/RDN?

Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RD/RDN) are food and nutrition experts who can translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. Dietitians use their nutrition expertise to help individuals make unique, positive lifestyle changes

In order to earn the credentials of a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, the following requirements must be met:

  • A minimum of a bachelor’s degree (Many RDs have graduate degrees and/or additional certifications, but these are not mandatory).
  • Completion of an accredited, supervised practice program (such as an internship) typically 10 months in length. Internships are generally comprised of three parts: A clinical rotation in an acute-care setting such as a hospital; food service; and community nutrition.
  • Pass a national exam.
  • Completion of continuing professional education hours, as required by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR).
  • There is no difference between an RD or RDN. The use of the word “nutritionist” is optional.

In some states, such as Pennsylvania, dietitians are required to be licensed. In these instances, dietitians must apply for licensure and within the application process certain requirements (applicable by state) must be met. Once licensed, a dietitian earns additional credentials such as Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (LDN).
