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 🙂
