Melissa is a Connecticut-based registered dietitian with over 15 years of experience, including clinical and outpatient settings, and runs the popular nutrition education Instagram account, Confessionofadietitian.

Melissa practices with the belief that your body is a sanctuary, and mental and physical health encompasses eating nutritious foods, exercising, and practicing self-care habits. Through educating her audience on nutrition science, introducing them to new products, and sharing recipes, Melissa hopes to show healthy eating doesn't have to be time consuming and can be made to work for the whole family. Melissa is mom to two boys, Max and Leo, and also uses her platform to share practical tips for managing motherhood and feeding kiddos.
