I'm Madeline, a registered dietitian with a passion for fostering a healthier relationship with food. With a Master's degree in Community Medical Dietetics from Viterbo University in Wisconsin, I've learned how to help individuals and communities make informed, sustainable choices for their well-being.
My journey in the realm of nutrition has been deeply influenced by my own personal battle with restrictive diets and an unhealthy relationship with food. It was during these challenging moments that I realized the importance of not just understanding what we eat but also why we eat. I embarked on a mission to heal my own relationship with food, and in doing so, I found my true calling as a dietitian.
I believe that food should never be the enemy but rather a source of nourishment, pleasure, and self-care.Whether you're seeking to manage a medical condition, improve your overall wellness, or simply want to make peace with your plate, I'm here to support you every step of the way.
