Originally from Connecticut where she received her Bachelor’s degree in Biology, Perry moved to Massachusetts to work as a coach for an organization called Let’s Get Movin’. In her role as a coach, she provided nutrition education, physical activity and lifestyle counseling for children and families. This opportunity allowed her to work with families of different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. She enjoyed working as a coach and nutrition educator so much that she decided to continue her education and passion by pursuing an advanced degree in nutrition. She completed a Didactic Program in Dietetics, as well as her Master’s in Science in Nutrition and Health Promotion at Simmons University in 2019. She then went on to complete her Dietetic Internship at Simmons University in 2020. During her internship she worked alongside dietitians practicing from an Intuitive Eating and a Health at Every Size (HAES ©) perspective. She felt aligned with this approach. After working as a nutritionist at The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) providing nutrition counseling to families, pre-natal and postpartum women, Perry joined the Metrowest Nutrition team to combine her passion for family work with her foundations in intuitive eating and HAES.
