“Melissa has done a great job with helping me with my stomach issues and helping me take and understand the LEAP program. I look forward to working with her on achieving other goals that relate to food and exercise.”

“I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet with Melissa! She has a wealth of knowledge and a real talent with knowing how to calibrate her expertise. Not once did she talk over my head nor waste time with trite diet fad nonsense. Melissa has a thorough command of the science and a great talent in being able to relay this information at a pace that is appropriate to her client. After years of dieting and doing my own “research” (Thank you Dr. Google!) I found myself completely confused — Melissa did a great job of setting me on the right path. As long as I keep putting one foot in front of the other, I will reach my destination –all the while enjoying the journey. I highly recommend Melissa to anyone that is looking for sound nutritional guidance! ”

“As a healthcare professional myself, I found Melissa excellent as a nutritional dietician with professional and compassionate dietary and nutritional education/counseling. She had great advice for fueling before/after my long runs. Helped to navigate all the false information on the internet and adjust my diet according to my personal goals and current health. Also had my 16 year old meet with her-excellent advice on a level my child could understand. Definitely recommend!”
