ABOUT MISS CHEF RD

Miss Chef RD, whom is most often referred to as Melissa, developed a love for food and cooking at an early age. Melissa vividly recalls making macaroni and cheese as a little girl and pretending she was on a cooking show teaching others how to prepare this “gourmet” meal.

Initially, Melissa decided to attend Johnson & Wales University so she could pursue a degree to possibly help fulfill her dream of opening a restaurant. Soon thereafter Melissa realized she was more interested in educating people about healthful eating than the logistics of owning an establishment. Miss Chef RD graduated from Johnson & Wales with an Associate of Science in Culinary Arts and a Bachelor of Science in Culinary Nutrition.

Soon thereafter, Melissa sought and secured a spot in the Combined Dietetic Internship/Master of Science in Nutrition and Health Promotion Program from Simmons College. Melissa completed her 900 hour internship and passed the American Dietetic Association’s national examination in 2004 to become a Registered Dietitian; Miss Chef RD graduated with distinction from the program in 2005 with a Master of Science in Nutrition and Health Promotion.

Melissa has a diverse background in the field; she has worked with impoverished families to help improve their nutritional status, managed a hospital kitchen and consulted with nursing homes to aid in providing optimal nutrition for residents in the past. Miss Chef RD currently works with patients seeking Weight Loss Surgery, individually counseling them pre- and post-operatively.

In her free time, Melissa enjoys spending time with her family, keeping abreast of the latest trends in Nutrition and as an avid animal lover, playing with her beloved mini-lop rabbit, Trudy.
