HEALTHY EATING SHOULD BE EASY (period). I can help.
I'm Jenna, a 20-something, flexitarian, oatmeal lover, chocoholic, peanut butter fanatic, skier, biker, boot camper, & fun enthusiast.
I am a registered dietitian nutritionist based in Bozeman, Montana here to help make healthy eating easy.
As millennials, we are constantly seeking nutrition information at our fingertips. However, in a world that relies on the internet and social media for our most trusted information it can be extremely confusing to choose what to believe and what to take with a grain of salt. Nutrition is more than fad diets and keeping up with the latest trends. It is about understanding your body's needs, developing a healthy relationship with food, and establishing simple (but long-lasting) lifestyle habits to help you reach your optimal health.
I work with 20-somethings to help improve their health through nutrition, mindful eating, and fine-tuning what is already known. My goal is to help end the cycle of yo-yo dieting and calorie counting. I intend to help relieve the stress that can come with mealtime prep through continued guidance and support to help people love food and their bodies.
I'd love to chat, get to know you, & answer any questions you may have. Feel free to contact me here.
I believe that...
...foods aren't inherently 'bad' or 'good'
...healthy eating can be easy even when we are super busy or on a tight budget
...food comes first (over supplements) and it is possible for most of us to meet our nutritional needs through whole foods
...healthy eating should be both fun and simple
I understand what it is like to feel out of balance with food, fitness, & healthy habits. I understand what it is like to have 'good' eating days and 'bad' eating days and the guilt that comes with it. However, I am a firm believer that healthy eating should be both fun and simple.
As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), I relay evidence-based facts into easily understood terms to help people reach their goals. I believe in a non-diet approach and establishing simple but long-lasting lifestyle changes to help set and attain realistic and individualized goals to achieve optimal health. No 'one size fits all', fad diets, or supplement drinks here - just real, whole foods, and personal care individual to your lifestyle, your health, and your needs.

A little more about Jenna...
Growing up on the east coast, Jenna is a New England girl at heart. After graduating from the University of Vermont (UVM), she headed west to Bozeman, MT to pursue a life in the mountains. She is a fan of good food, good company, good (cheap) wine, and local beer. Being a lover of skiing, biking, hiking, river floating, and the laid back culture of Bozeman, one can say mountain life suits her well.
She received her Bachelor's Degree in Dietetics, Nutrition, and Food Sciences from UVM and completed a supervised practice dietetic internship with Wellness Workdays, a worksite wellness company based in Massachusetts.
Over the years, Jenna has worked in both clinical and outpatient settings seeing a wide variety of clients including those with disordered eating behaviors, weight loss, weight gain, and picky eaters. Jenna is well-trained and educated in the nutrition field and has experience with medical nutrition therapy patients. Much of her training has been in worksite wellness and she has years of experience with nutrition communications and writing as well.
