About Jessica Flaherty, RD
Hi there! I’m Jessica and I’m a Registered Dietitian. I live in Ventura County, California.
From the time I first learned about how food can help nourish our bodies, I have always loved learning more about it. While I was in college I had the opportunity to work at a residential treatment center for eating disorder and substance abuse recovery. I gained knowledge and hands-on experience but what stuck with me the most is the relationships I formed with clients.
I knew when I started the path to becoming a dietitian, that I wanted a job that allowed me to build real, genuine connections with clients. Our relationship with food is personal and important; I love helping people improve their relationship with food and their body so they can live their life to the fullest! Finding that passion in helping people recover from eating disorders has been my greatest joy!
When I’m not working I enjoy gluten-free baking (I’m Celiac), watching movies, camping, and catching up with friends.
