Kelly, thank you so much for this review and for asking me to work with you. Means a lot to me.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Every service I offer is customizable and flexible. If there is a price on my list of services, know that I will make every effort to adjust it accordingly to accommodate a person's budget.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?If requested as a nutritionist, I have a New Client Questionnaire I ask clients to complete and I am qualified to assist in certain medical or other conditions (diabetes, renal, eating disorders). The questionnaire also gives me an idea of how to help clients set realistic, achievable goals. I also offer a free initial phone or in-person consultation to get to learn more about prospective clients. Even if you accept my quote, you don't have to commit to my services until after we've had an initial discussion.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I grew up in northern NJ planting and growing food in my parents' backyard garden and started cooking when I was about 11 years old. I've been involved in food, cooking, and nutrition in one way or another for over 30 years. I owned and operated an event planning and catering business for 9 years. I am now formally pursuing an MS in Nutrition and completed a year-long dietetic internship to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN).
