About Marissa

Really good food. That’s what nutrition is about. The “best diet” is the one we look forward to — every single day. I bring together knowledge of product, wellness, and an extensive love of food to the table. There is nothing more “satiating” to me than helping you feel great about your health. In the end, you’ll see yourself. Your best self.

I am a registered dietitian with a Master of Science in Nutrition and Applied Physiology from Columbia University, 2009. I started out my career as the Director of Corporate Wellness at Next Jump, an eCommerce company based in New York City. Over the course of four years, I managed the nutrition and fitness programs, provided workshops and lectures, helped track employee health performance, and founded “Marissa’s Corner,” the company health blog, whose outreach extended to thousands of Fortune 1000 employees. I also developed content for Next Jump’s online Health Channel and helped the company achieve their first Fit-Friendly Work-site Award from the American Heart Association. Working alongside Next Jump employees as a full-time employee myself, I grew to understand the power of business when employee-health comes first.

In 2008, I began this website as both a media resource and friendly counseling business. At the beginning of 2014, I moved with my husband from NYC to Seattle, and decided it was time to take this business to the next level. With both a large network on the east coast and a desire to help the communities close by, I now counsel individuals both remotely and in Seattle Proper. Please find my services under the Services Section of this website.

In my spare time, I enjoy spin classes at FlyWheel in South Lake Union, frequenting art museums, and dining with friends and family at the myriad, glorious restaurants known to Seattle.
