We are Expanding with a new Dietitian at Erica Leon Nutrition!
Please join us in welcoming Diana Ushay, MS, RDN, to Erica Leon Nutrition LLC!
Diana has been consulting with us for several years while she trained to be a dietitian, and now she is an official RD! Oh….and she is ALSO A CERTIFIED INTUITIVE EATING COUNSELOR!
Diana began her nutrition career at a young age as she loved cooking and was often the chef in her own family kitchen. She pursued this professionally by attending culinary school at the Culinary Institute of America; she then attended Cornell University to further her interest in food science and nutrition.
Upon graduating, she landed a job at Ghiradelli chocolates in product development. There, she created new chocolate flavors that are still on the shelves today!
While working with chocolate every day was fun and exciting, she felt that helping people through food would be more fulfilling.
She pursued a master’s degree in nutrition at Columbia University to become a registered dietitian. Diana has discovered a passion for working with clients struggling with eating disorders through her work as a recovery coach at Monte Nido and with Erica Leon Nutrition.
Now that Diana is a registered dietitian, she works to incorporate recipes, cooking and meal planning into her counseling sessions to help spark the joy of cooking in all of her clients.
Diana has been involved in two very important projects at Erica Leon Nutrition. She has partnereed with Erica to write a cookbook with Recipes for Recovery (Stay tuned for news on this!) and she is providing meal support for individuals over the age of 18, who are looking to have additional group support.
