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 believe eating a plant-based diet benefits both our health and the health of the planet; however I also understand that there’s not one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition. I take an integrative approach to wellness that focuses on mindful eating and helping people connect with their bodies to achieve improved health & well-being (with a generous portion of plants, and room for delicious vegan treats!)
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.
