One of the Best Mediterranean Diet Ambassadors
We are honored to have been featured as one of “The 11 Best Mediterranean Diet Ambassadors, Registered Dietitians, and Nutritionists” in the summer issue of The Mediterranean Lifestyle Magazine this year! As a mom and dietitian team it is our mission to reach families all over the world and provide you with education, support, and community as you and your family begin to implement the principles of the Mediterranean Diet. Being recognized as some of the best ambassadors for the Mediterranean Diet on a global level has helped us to move forward with living our mission!
Every Registered Dietitian is a Nutritionist, but Not Every Nutritionist is a Registered Dietitian
Registered dietitians are recognized as the leading food and nutrition experts. Completing a minimum of a bachelor’s degree accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and 1,200 hours of supervised practice work, they then go on to pass a national exam administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. In order to maintain registration, a minimum of 75 continuing education credits must be completed every 5 years to stay up to date with the ever-changing nutrition knowledge and recommendations.
As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Jamie completed her Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Dietetics at Michigan State University and went on to complete her Master’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition in addition to her dietetic internship at Rush University Medical Center. Jamie is also a Certified Nutrition Support Clinician and currently pursuing a board certification in Pediatric Nutrition (CSP). Jamie has over 5 years of experience working in pediatric nutrition where she has worked with kids having a variety of medical backgrounds including food allergies, irritable bowel disease, seizure disorders, and cancer. Throughout her practice, she continues to implement the principles of the Mediterranean Diet when appropriate!
As a leader in the field of nutrition, Jamie is involved in many professional organizations. As past president of The Maryland Society for Enteral and Parenteral Nutrition Jamie continues to stay actively involved on the executive board. She is also an active member of the Pediatric Nutrition and Oncology Nutrition Practice Groups where she contributes to quarterly newsletters, webinars, and frequently asked questions.
