Nutrition Education

A truly hands-on and interactive experience

Presentations

I have an extensive background in both creating and implementing presentations on a wide array of nutrition topics. These include, but are not limited to:

– goal setting– understanding metabolism
– macro & micronutrients– mindful eating & stress management
– reading food labels– building a healthy plate
– portion control– eating healthy when dining out
– meal planning– eating healthy on a budget
– limiting added
sugars
– healthy breakfast ideas
– dietary trends– staying healthy during the holidays

Additionally, I have experience teaching functional movement and “brain break” activities in order to help individuals increase their physical activity during the busy work day without requiring any equipment.

As an expert in the field, I will customize a presentation or an entire class series based on your specific needs and expectations.

Audiences

I have over a decade of experience teaching nutrition across various populations. These include, but are not limited to:

– school & afterschool
educators
– assisted living residents
– college students – fitness trainers
– weight loss participants – foodservice workers
– afterschool educators – K-12th school childres
– individuals with pre-diabetes – fitness studio members
– medical professionals – working professionals
– parents

Cooking Demonstrations

I ensure my presentations are both interactive and informative.

This includes incorporating a healthy cooking demonstration in conjunction with traditional learning.

I utilize a student-based approach to nutrition education that centers around the participation of attendees. Additionally, preparing a recipe as a group makes health education much more fun and enjoyable.

Community Wide Events

If you are looking to hire an RD & Certified Personal Trainer at your next health fair, business networking event, group meeting, farmer’s market, grocery store event, trade show, fundraiser, resident event, school-wide event, building grand opening, or health promotions party, look no further. 

Community events provide a wonderful opportunity to promote healthy messaging while connecting with large groups of people in a captivating and creative way. Learn how much sugar is hidden in popular beverages, taste a recipe you have never tried, learn what types of oils are the healthiest, or learn what exercises can be done in the comfort of your home or office. The health education possibilities are endless.

Make Elevate your Plate® part of your upcoming meeting, event, or class to ensure nutrition education and physical activity resources are readily available to your participants.
