My name is Nessa and I started this blog because health has been a big part of my life. I started my career in the health field over 10 years ago. Starting out in the field of nursing and transitioning to the field of nutrition. Food truly is medicine and it is important that we always remember that. Here are just a few things about me:
Licensed Practical Nurse
AAS in Dietetic Technician
AA in General Studies
BS in Health Sciences
Certified in Nutrition and Health Promotion
Certified in Diabetes Care and Education
Certified Community Nutrition Worker
I love Food!
I love Podcast!
I love Meditation!
I’m a mom!
I’m a cat mom!
My journey is far from over it’s just beginning and nutrition will always have my heart. I discovered my love for nutrition early into my college years especially as I learned that I had Acid Reflux Disease at the age of twenty-three. Even though Acid Reflux seems like something that is not that serious it actually is. I was diagnosed with Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR) also know as Silent Reflux. I had the symptoms years before I was diagnosed but didn’t realize until after I was diagnosed and did more research it was the Reflux all along. I struggled to manage the Reflux and with repeated episodes of acid hitting my throat I decided it was time to make a change for the better and for my nutritional health. It was more than just about Acid Reflux, it was about getting healthy again and becoming a new me.
So my goal is to help you become a NEW YOU!
