Hi, my name is Jessie Valentine and I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and certified yoga instructor. In addition to these things, I also have a background in psychology, and I’m so happy to be able to use my skills and knowledge to help you!
My approach to nutrition, or my “personal food philosophy” was formed as a result of my experiences, education, and through learning from others. I became a vegetarian at a young age, then a vegan, but I struggled with restrictive eating. When I let go of food rules and embraced eating for health, my ethical beliefs, AND pleasure, I felt so much better—physically and mentally.
I take an integrative approach to wellness and believe that in order to help you, I need to first get to know you! To learn how I do this, see my “work with me” page by clicking here or by clicking on the “work with me” tab above.
My professional background includes a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Hofstra University, a dual bachelor’s degree/master’s degree in nutrition from Long Island University-Post, completion of an accredited dietetic internship through Long Island University, and completion of a 200-hour yoga teacher training through Emerge Yoga & Wellness.
