About Me

Personality:

When you first meet Jeanne, you will be greeted with a big smile and immediately feel her passion and enthusiasm. When you are working with Jeanne, you will feel comfortable, confident, and supported.

Background:

Jeanne is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who’s journey into nutrition began as a Division I student-athlete at Towson University where she learned firsthand the impact nutrition can have on performance, in all facets of life. This appreciation was elevated after obtaining her Bachelor’s Degree in Health Education and during her time as a teacher and coach, where she identified nutrition as her life’s passion. Jeanne then went on to pursue a second degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from West Chester University and complete her formal training with ARAMARK Healthcare in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Jeanne is currently pursuing her Master’s Degree in Exercise Science and Health Promotion.

Jeanne's professional career has spanned the acute inpatient care, critical care, long-term acute care, and outpatient settings. She has spent the past decade in the outpatient and private practice settings, where she has helped hundreds of clients in the areas of mindful eating, general healthy eating, healthy weight management, sports performance nutrition, vegan and vegetarian eating patterns, type 2 diabetes, and pre-diabetes.

Jeanne is trained in motivational interviewing and behavior change practices and prides herself on her individualized approach to empowering clients to reach their maximum potential through the power of building practical and sustainable nutrition and lifestyle habits.

Counseling Philosophy:

Jeanne’s counseling philosophy is rooted in her belief that food is more than just food, it is nourishment, performance, relationships, family, culture, tradition and pleasure. In a word, it is Life.

Jeanne feels passionate about helping her clients discover their own love and appreciation for food and prides herself on providing the support, education and tools needed to empower clients to feel confident and joyful around their nutrition decisions.

She loves to teach realistic cooking and food prep strategies that are approachable, tasty, and fun to help her clients bring their nutrition goals to life in their own kitchens.

Personal Interests:

Beyond being a nutrition professional, Jeanne is also an athlete, mom, traveler, nature lover and self-proclaimed “foodie”. Jeanne can often be found testing out new recipes in her own kitchen, gathered around a restaurant table with friends and family or wandering around food stores or farmer’s markets.

Jeanne also loves being active in nature by hiking with her family or being on the water in a kayak or paddle board.  She enjoys staying physically active through running, cycling, lifting and most of all through playing sports, especially with her two daughters.

Questions? We have answers

Will my insurance cover these sessions?
When you book an appointment, you’ll be asked to submit your insurance information. From there, you will hear back before your appointment on general coverage. While we can’t guarantee coverage (as it is always up to the insurance company), we can provide an estimate or idea of what may or may not be covered while working with your RD.
Is there anything I need to do to prepare for the sessions?
We highly recommend compleating our pre-evaluation forms. Not only is this very helpful for the RD you’ll be meeting with, but it gives you a chance to take time and think about what will really help you on this journey.

Other than that, we also encourage sending over any recent labs, food records, or referrals you received from your doctor or therapist.
How many sessions will I need with my RD?
Follow-ups are integral for progress and to get the most value from working with an RD. We don’t require or mandate any set number of follow-ups, but we do recommend meeting at least every 1 to 2 weeks for the first 3 months of your first appointment. Of course, this may not be possible for certain individuals and that’s ok too. The best part is that all treatment timelines are flexible and adjustable to fit your needs.
What if I am not satisfied or unhappy with the dietitian I am matched with?
One of the perks of working with us is that we have a variety of qualified RDs and all have their own individual techniques, specialty areas AND personalities. Nutrition can be very personal and for that reason, finding an RD who meshes with your personality is paramount. If you’re not clicking with your dietitian, you can simply message or email us and we can match you with a better fit. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if that’s the case! It’s important that you connect with the provider to see the maximum benefits.
Is it possible to ever do in-person sessions?
At this time, we are only set-up for virtual visits, except if you live close to the NYC area. Of course, if and when that changes, we will be notifying all of our clients and patients.
How does billing work?
We understand navigating insurance can be quite confusing and overwhelming. Luckily, if you’re using health insurance for your sessions, we will do all the billing for you. We submit claims to your insurance company within a few days of your appointments. Copays and deductibles are charged a few weeks later as we like to wait for the explanation of benefits to come back first before making charges. These charges can be automatically processed using the card you have on file. If you ever have additional billing questions or concerns, you can contact us at any time and someone will assist you promptly!
What happens if I need to cancel or can’t make an appointment?
Emergencies happen and we try to be as understanding and accommodating as possible. We do have a 24 hour cancellation policy in order to respect the time of our practitioners and other clients who are trying to schedule appointments as well. That said, if something unexpected or emergent comes up, we just ask that you notify us as soon as possible. Otherwise, we appreciate that you keep all your scheduled appointment times to the best of your ability.
