Zoe obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics with a minor in Psychology from the West Chester University of Pennsylvania in 2013. Zoe's commitment to nutrition started after registering for an elective nutrition course. She instantly became fascinated by the science of the subject. After graduating, she completed her Dietetic Internship with Aramark and successfully passed the Registered Dietitian exam in August of 2014. Zoe is also a Certified Diabetes Educator, with extensive knowledge of and experience in diabetes prevention, prediabetes, and diabetes management.
Before joining the team at OnPoint Nutrition, Zoe started her career at a weight management center, helping clients achieve weight loss goals ranging from 10-200 pounds. Looking to expand her experience, she took a position at Holy Redeemer Hospital as both an inpatient and outpatient Clinical Dietitian. Her passion is motivating clients to meet their health and wellness goals. After seeing positive results in her clients, it didn't take long for Zoe to feel rewarded. Zoe believes "a healthy diet is a diet that fits your lifestyle and is filled with an abundance of wholesome foods that are nutritious and flavorful!"
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, running and biking through downtown Philadelphia.

What do you enjoy most about being a nutritionist/dietitian?
I love the science behind nutrition and connecting food to how our body's function. Optimizing your nutrition can make a huge difference on how you feel day to day. It's the best feeling when clients can feel the difference after making positive diet and lifestyle changes.
What questions do clients most commonly ask you? What is your answer?
What is a perfect diet? My answer is always "It's different for everyone, what works for you might not work for your neighbor or best friend. By working together through trial and error we'll find YOUR perfect diet.
If you could give clients one piece of advice in improving their health/nutrition, what would it be?
Don't beat yourself up. No one day or one meal can make or break all of your progress. Every change big or small goes a long way!
