Melodie Ho

I am a Registered Dietitian who has an undeniable passion for anything and everything to do with food! My greatest interests have been in learning about different foods from all over the world, understanding the cultural and experiential influences that impact what foods we choose, and how food can connect people on so many different levels. I strongly believe that foods are not only meant for nourishing our minds and our bodies, they’re meant to be enjoyed (including cookies!). As a wife and mother, I actively try to instill this balanced food and nutrition approach in my growing family.

The approach I take with my family is the exact same one I take with my clients. I want them to confidently embrace the concept that all foods can fit while empowering them to make informed decisions about the foods they choose for their health and for enjoyment.

Over the years working in various nutrition roles, I have become well-versed in client counseling and consumer engagement. I love helping people achieve their nutrition goals whether they are to gain accurate nutrition knowledge, set personalized health goals, or learn how to incorporate nutrition into a busy lifestyle. Healthy eating is an important aspect of overall wellness so I encourage you to work with me if you’re interested in maximizing your health and well-being.

Kind Words about Melodie

“The dietitian I worked with was Melodie and I would highly recommend her to anyone I know searching for the same thing I was - better choices for a balanced diet leading to overall better lifestyle/health. She listened to my concerns and after we discussed how to proceed with better nutrition she asked me if I wanted her to write everything down oh my goodness that was very helpful and appreciated as I have referred to it a few times already and took it to my doctor today he agreed it is something I should try and was very impressed how the information was written down and presented.” - Anonymous
