Meet Jessamyn

Hey everyone!

My name is Jessamyn Almenas and I am Registered Dietitian. I currently reside in the sunny state of Florida where I provide nutrition education and counseling in my community. I am passionate about healthy eating, trying out different cuisines and traveling the world, all of which I hope to give you a glimpse of through Jessamyn Wanders.


Education

I graduated from the University of North Florida with both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Nutrition & Dietetics. I also completed my dietetic internship through their graduate program and had several rotations in clinical dietetics, foodservice and community nutrition with a special focus in diabetes management. I became a full-fledged Registered Dietitian and Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist (Florida) in July 2014.


Professional Experience

In addition to completing over 1,200 hours during my internship days (more on that later!), I am now practicing medical nutrition therapy in the acute-care setting. I also provide individualized nutrition counseling as well as group education sessions. And since I like to keep busy I teach various nutrition courses at the college-level, all of which I love doing! As you can see, food is pretty much my life.
