Conversation 73: The Story, Journey and Passion of Dina D’Alessandro, RD
“You have to sometimes be uncomfortable in progressing. Not necessarily like, oh I’m going to go skydiving because I am afraid of heights, but just taking that moment to say this is a situation that makes me uncomfortable. Then I can prepare myself for another experience like that, a similar experience. Now, I am prepared and I have the tools and strategies to understand how to address it next time.” - Dina D’Alessandro, RDN
Today’s conversation is with Dina D'Alessandro, a Registered Dietitian who is passionate about helping people embrace and develop new relationships with food in her own personal community.
Dina is a human who inspires me from the other side of the country. I was excited to learn more about her on a professional and personal level during our conversation, which exceeded my expectations. Dina is the dietitian I am constantly striving to be. She is passionate about nutrition and food in her community, by volunteering her time and providing nutrition education programming right where she lives, works at a high-risk ob-gyn practice, runs a part-time private practice and is a preceptor. She is also so close to graduating with her masters degree, is working on getting fit by 50 and carries a pure entrepreneurial spirit.
Please enjoy my conversation with Dina.
