“Working with a nutritionist who listened to my needs, is anti-diet culture, and fully supported me fueling my body to feel my best is exactly the kind of nutritionist we need more of in the industry. You are truly a gift.”

As the CEO and Founder of Nutrition By Mel, she consults with Nike and the Metropolitan Opera House and works privately with Olympic athletes, moms, and similar super heroes to improve their relationship to food.

This past year, Mel presented at the first ever Female Health and Performance Conference alongside industry leaders like Dr. Stacey Sims and Dr. Kathryn Ackerman.

Mel has made it her mission to empower female athletes to better fuel for performance and in doing so, has carved out a niche as an industry leading practitioner. She continues to challenge outdated nutrition recommendations for athletes, moms, and moms-to-be and is bringing awareness to the crossroads of nutrition and female reproductive health. True to herself, she does it all with her trademark kindness and compassion.

“Thank you Nutrition By Mel for showing me gentle tools for feeding my body and mind that work for ME.”

“So far since I’ve graduated from working with you, I’ve gotten my period every 30-40 days (as the months have gone on, this time has gotten shorter and shorter). I lived without a period for over 3 years and did not want to admit to myself that I was having issues with body image and with my relationship with food- I was scared that this reality would put me out of my sport. You challenged and addressed not only the fueling component but my disordered thoughts as well. Not only do I have a period now, I also have a healed relationship with food and furthermore, my sport. What you do is amazing and I’m so excited to see how you grow in your practice helping other women and athletes who are in a similar position as I once was. You rock!”
