Retail Dietitian Profiles
I am an in-store RD and my current role is as the Nutrition Advisor for our latest store concept, Raley’s O-N-E Market. This is a new role for the organization, and I am responsible for bringing the O-N-E acronym, which stands for organics, nutrition, and education, to life by educating our Something Extra members, team members and the community on our vision to change the way the world eats, one plate at a time.
I am a Registered Dietitian for Stop & Shop Nutrition Partners. We provide free health and wellness services to our customers and the communities we serve. I was the first dietitian brought on board last spring to support our Program Lead in building out the core curriculum, including educational resources, nutrition classes, and more.
My role as Corporate Retail Dietitian varies from interacting with our corporate office, to working with our in-store teams, vendors, distributors, along with communicating and educating our customers on health topics and new products at Rouses. I coordinate our Eat Right with Rouses initiative which is geared toward helping customers find foods that meet their health goals. Much of my communication efforts have changed and evolved since Covid-19 to more Facebook lives on Rouses Markets Facebook page, zoom classes, and news segments across the regions to reach a broad audience.
I was hired as an In-Store Nutritionist covering one store and one community for three years. My role transformed and now, I am one of the Regional Nutritionist with The GIANT Company who works with 30+ GIANT and MARTIN’s stores and the communities surrounding our stores to help shoppers make healthier choices for their families. My region includes south central PA, MD, VA, and WV. In addition, I support our associates on their health journey and work with our corporate teams to plan and execute healthier systems for our customers.
I am the Manager of Health and Wellness for Inserra Supermarkets. I oversee our Retail Dietitian program. We currently have 15 full-time registered dietitians on staff who provide nutrition and wellness services to customers, associates, and community partners of our 23 ShopRite stores in New York and New Jersey.
In my current role as the Health & Wellness Dietitian at SpartanNash, I coordinate their health and wellness strategy, initiatives, and programs. I work with merchandising, communications, and distribution marketing to bring health and wellness programs like Kid’s Crew, Nutrition Pathways, and Store Tours to the forefront of our stores.
In my current role as Director of Healthy Living, I’m responsible for Giant’s overall strategy related to nutrition, health and wellness. I work with cross-functional teams in Merchandising, Pharmacy, Sustainable Retailing, and Store Operations to embed Healthy Living into Giant’s strategic initiatives.
I am a bilingual retail contract dietitian with the H-E-B Nutrition Services department. I provide nutrition education and nutrition counseling to H-E-B customers and partners. While I mostly see patients in a 1-1 setting, we do offer group nutrition education opportunities as well. These include grocery tours, cooking demos, webinars, etc. I see patients ages two and up and for a variety of nutrition-related health conditions.
