Greetings!  My name is Jess and I’m the girl behind Vitamin Valentine.  I started Vitamin Valentine in 2013 as a blog to document my experience as a student while pursuing a B.S./M.S. in Nutrition.  My first bachelor’s degree is in psychology, but after entering the workforce, I realized my true passion is nutrition and decided to start the path to become a Registered Dietitian (RD).  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.


In addition to being a student, I work full-time as a community nutritionist.  I really enjoy helping people get access to healthy, affordable food. I’m a huge supporter of farmers markets and eating locally-grown produce.  I’m also a Certified Yoga Instructor.  Yoga has helped me find my balance on and off the mat, and I’m passionate about helping people discover the benefits of yoga and mindfulness.  When I’m not in class, working, teaching yoga, or blogging, I like being outdoors, especially during the summer.

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. You can also contact me to find out my yoga teaching schedule or to schedule a personalized yoga session at vitaminvalentineblog@gmail.com.

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.
