Rebecca Schmitke

Registered Dietitian

I became a dietitian because I love connecting with others over food and nutrition. It is my passion to help others heal and develop a more nuanced, confident, and peaceful relationship between food and their bodies. I would love to come alongside you wherever you find yourself on this journey!


In addition to working with eating disorders, I have a robust background in prenatal and postpartum nutrition counseling. As a mother myself, I personally understand the complexities regarding changes in body image and nutritional needs during this beautiful yet often jarring season. Outside of nutrition counseling, I keep busy exploring the world with my two kids and husband. You’ll often find me drinking coffee, practicing yoga, painting furniture, or whipping up a new recipe in the kitchen.

Jessica Manginelli

Registered Dietitian

My passion for nutrition really took root because of my background in athletics. In college, I was a 4 year Varsity Rower, and prior to that I had been competing in various sports since the age of four. 


From being impacted by disordered eating habits myself that caused me to not be able to reach my potential in college and seeing other teammates struggle with body image and food, I learned that sports nutrition is a lot more than just eating protein. Now as I live life as a retired athlete, I see how the difficulties of additional body changes and changes in eating patterns affect an individual’s relationship with food. I strive to help all people mend their relationship with food and body and guide them to take steps toward stress free eating.


My goal is to help clients understand the why behind their decisions and to give them the space to challenge unhealthy behaviors so that they can focus on the aspects of their lives that they truly value.
