Experienced. Credentialed. Supportive.
My name is Brittany and I am a Registered Dietitian, wife and mother. Originally from sunny California now residing in Denver, Colorado. I am passionate about food and nutrition and love to help others live a healthier and happier life. I enjoy cooking, creating recipes, eating delicious and nutritious meals, food photography, and spending time with my family. I have spent many years working in hospitals helping people manage their health with proper medical nutrition therapy. Now I enjoy working more closely with my clients to help them fulfill their nutritional goals.

I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) credentialed through the Commission on Dietetic Registration by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
I have a Bachelors of Science Degree in Clinical Nutrition from the University of California, Davis and completed my dietetic internship at New York Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan, the teaching hospitals of Cornell and Columbia, which I later worked at.

What is the difference between a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist?
The term "nutritionist" is not legally regulated and anyone can call themselves a nutritionist regardless of their education level or expertise. A Registered Dietitian or Registered Dietitian Nutritionist has completed extensive training and education in the field of nutrition. Including holding a bachelors degree in nutrition, completing an extensive supervised internship at a healthcare facility and completing a rigorous examination to become credentialed.
