A registered dietitian (RD) is a nationally recognized credential. Unfortunately, anyone can call themselves a "nutritionist" regardless of their education or training. Nutritionists can have varying levels of education – and sometimes, they might not have any formal nutrition education at all. Dietitians are required to fulfill specific requirements, including a bachelor's degree with coursework approved by the Commission on Dietetic Registration, complete at least 1,200 hours of a supervised practice program, successfully pass the national RD exam, and maintain continued education requirements for re-licensure and certification.

Virtual cooking classes will be conducted via Zoom, as well as virtual workshops and speaking engagements. In-person workshops and speaking engagements will depend on the location, please contact me for more details.
