About Georgia

 
 
 

As a Registered Dietitian, I work with oncology patients at a major health system in Portland, Oregon, helping these individuals manage nutrition-impact symptoms from cancer treatments. I am also a member of the Portland Field Marketing Team for KIND Snacks, taking the lead on local fitness partnerships for the company. In addition to working in the clinical realm of nutrition, I am passionate about the power of nutrition communications to help others lead empowered, strong, and vibrant lives. My recent features include such online publications as the Huffington Post and  MyFitnessPal.

Registered Dietitian vs. Nutritionist

One question I am frequently asked is what differentiates an RD from a “nutritionist?” Registered Dietitians are the only nationally recognized nutrition professionals and are required to complete the following steps before becoming credentialed:

1. Bachelors degree in nutrition or related field from an accredited university, completing specific coursework to meet DPD (Didactic Program in Dietetics) standards

2. Accredited dietetic internship program, completing a minimum of 1200 hours of supervised practice primarily in the areas of clinical, community, and foodservice nutrition

3. Registration examination for dietitians upon completion of dietetic internship
