Enjely is a first-generation Dominican American and is currently one of a few bilingual dietitians in Massachusetts. She was born and raised in the Northshore area of Massachusetts. Prior to joining the nutrition field, Enjely joined and proudly served in the United States Marine Corps following her older brother’s footsteps. Her military experience and environment were filled with opportunities to overcome her self-doubt, build confidence, and find pride in her abilities. This broad exposure to her diverse background has shaped who she is today and has allowed her to relate to different types of individuals.
Enjely was initially unaware and did not fully realize how the common disordered eating patterns, chronic dieting, strict, and rigid military standards would impact on her mental, physical health, and athletic performance. After her medical retirement from the military, Enjely was on a mission to finally ditch the chronic dieting and tune in to her own body’s needs to improve her overall health.
Breaking through barriers is nothing new for her, as she was able to find peace and balance which has made her enthusiastic, passionate, and excited to learn about all the different ways she can help others mend their relationship with food and nutrition. Having developed a collaborative mentality from the military, she is dedicated to empower individuals and develop a partnership with a non-diet approach to ensure clients are making realistic changes that will not compromise their relationship with food and nutrition.
Enjely received her Bachelor’s degree from Framingham State University in Food and Nutrition, & Dietetics Concentration. She subsequently attended Simmons University where she completed a Masters of Science in Nutrition and Health Promotion with a Concentration in Entrepreneurship and a certificate in sports nutrition. She is actively involved in efforts to diversify the dietetics field through involvement with Diversify Dietetics and as an active board member of Boston Alliance for Diversity in Dietetics (BADD).
In her free time, Enjely and her husband, who is also a military veteran, are professionally trained athletes. Enjely is an aerialist and Vince is a parkour athlete and instructor. Enjely also enjoys spending time with her two dogs and watching movies with her husband.
