Jamie Dannenberg, MS, RD, LDN (she/her/hers)
If you believe that food is far more than just fuel or sustenance, then you’ll love Jamie!
Jamie knows that food is memories, connections, fun, relational, grief, and celebration. She knows that food doesn’t need to be about rules, restrictions, shame, and fear. However, Jamie understands that relationships with food can be complicated and accompanied by critical thoughts, judgments about one’s body, trauma, access to food resources, and overall, food and body history.
Given her personal experience of caring for a loved one with an eating disorder, Jamie understands that recovering from an eating disorder, disordered eating, and/or chronic dieting often involves changing behaviors that we have relied on for a long time. But also from her personal experience, she knows how much is possible!
Jamie uses a non-diet and Health at Every Size® (HAES) approach, bringing patience, compassion, and support to all of her clients, while helping them heal their relationships with food and their bodies that allows for a better connection and relationship to themselves.
Jamie’s personal mission is to provide a safe and inclusive space for people of all sizes, shapes, genders, sexualities, races, religions, abilities, and backgrounds. In particular, Jamie understands the intersection between sexuality, gender identity, gender expression, and eating disorders. As such, Jamie creates a safe and affirming environment for transgender, non-binary, and queer individuals, who struggle with their relationship with food, eating disorders/disordered eating, chronic dieting and negative body image.
Jamie received her Bachelor’s degree from The College of Wooster in Wooster, OH and completed the Coordinated Program in Dietetics and a Masters Degree in Food and Nutrition at Framingham State University in 2016. Prior working at Metrowest Nutrition, Jamie worked in community nutrition at South Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC) in Framingham where she gained in depth awareness of the social determinants of health which strengthened her passion for social justice.
