Hey, I'm Brenna!
I’m a Registered Dietitian and Founder of The Wellful LLC. I’m a native New Yorker and have traveled and lived in NYC, Boston, Italy and Bermuda. My practice is 100% virtual which means I can work with you, wherever you are!
I got into nutrition after needing to adopt a gluten-free diet in high school and meeting with a Registered Dietitian. After writing for food magazines and working for startup food companies in college, I realized that so many of the majority of what we learn about food and health comes from food marketing and the media - and how confusing and conflicting these messages can be.
I decided to combine my passions in writing, marketing and wellness to become a registered dietitian to help make nutrition less confusing and help people have a more positive, mindful relationship with food.
In addition to working with clients 1:1 I write about food, intuitive eating, mindfulness & wellness and have been published in POPSUGAR, My Life OOO, Boston Voyager and Spoon University. I help food, beverage and grocery startups solidify their nutrition & wellness messaging and brand strategy. To highlight the women changing the food and wellness landscape, I host the bi-weekly Wellful’s Women in Wellness Podcast talking about unconventional careers and paths in health.
My nutrition philosophy:
When it comes to nutrition, I’m a firm believer in 3 things: that we can feel our best without feeling obsessed, our relationship with food and our body is as important as what we put into our body, and that nutrition doesn’t need to be confusing or complicated. With so many diet messages available to us, we hear a lot about the specifics of food, but rarely give enough credit to the importance of having a healthy relationship with food to put that information to use in a healthful way.
