Greetings!  My name is Jess and I’m the girl behind Vitamin Valentine.  I started Vitamin Valentine in 2013 as a way to document my experience as a student while pursuing a second bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in nutrition (B.S/M.S.).  My first bachelor’s degree is in psychology, but I always knew I wanted to do something with nutrition.  I hope to combine my background in social science with helping people develop healthier eating habits.

In the Spring of 2017, I graduated with my nutrition degrees, and I was accepted into a competitive, rigorous Dietetic Internship (DI) program, in order to become a Registered Dietitian.  Although I’m not an RD yet, I love using my blog as a way to share healthy recipes and personal insights of my own journey of health and wellness.

When I’m not blogging or being a student, I work full-time as a Nutritionist for the Women, Infants, Children (WIC) program.  I love working with this population because early life is such an important time to establish proper nutrition and good health.  I also really enjoy helping people get access to healthy, affordable food.

Outside of my job and my blog, I’m a certified yoga instructor, farmers market-enthusiast, nature-lover, and runner.

I love hearing from my readers, so if there’s a topic you want to see covered or you’d like to contact me, feel free to leave a comment.

Happy reading and eating 🙂

    Hi Jess, thanks for visiting https://vegiglow.com/ and liking my post. I too studied nutritional science, but sadly, didn’t pursue a degree in nutrition, although my passion is food and it’s wonderful byproduct of health & wellness. Best of luck to you in your studies.
