About
Melissa
I am so happy to be working with Nourish! I have worked for over 13 years in GI-related nutrition. Prior to this I worked as a "generalist", seeing many different diagnoses, but not really getting to be an expert in any. My goal in specializing was to become an expert in GI nutrition and teach/train others to a part this specialty as well. GI nutrition is an ever and fast-changing nutrition specialty, I keep up on latest research/literature in regards to myriad of GI diagnoses. I am experienced in enteral and parenteral feeding management as well as EoE and gastroparesis along with the other diagnoses listed.
Approach to care
Most GI patients are motivated to feel better and improve symptoms. My goal is to add foods back into your diet (eventually) and not continue with extensive, long-term eliminations. I do use a Motivational Interviewing approach to learn more about your and what symptoms you're experiencing so that I can best direct your care.

What to expect in your first session with Melissa?

My goal is to get to know you; what symptoms you have (being as descriptive as possible), what you eat or enjoy eating, and to provide some initial suggestions to aid in improving symptoms, symptom control in the context of expanding your diet.

Hobbies
I enjoy being active with my children, watching their school related activities, participating in fund raising at my son's school. I've recently taken up karate with my youngest son. I used to own a small women's clothing boutique, there was a need for affordable, on-trend fashion in our community so I took advantage of the need, I have an entrepreneurial spirit! Unfortunately, I was unable to retain my location after the COVID-19 pandemic due to rising costs in rent. I hope to get back to doing this in another season of life.
