Hi! I’m Nicole ….
Nicole Hallissey MS, RDN, CDN
I'm glad you stumbled upon my site because I LOVE sharing my nutrition practice with others. My journey began at the age of 13 when I prided myself as a professional babysitter. I babysat for sooo many families, but two mothers just happened to be Registered Dietitians--my inspirations.
I am a born and raised Jersey Girl (but not the Jersey-Shore TV show type) and studied Nutrition and Dietetics at Rutgers University. For those familiar with becoming a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), I completed my internship at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. I began my career as a Supermarket Dietitian for a major chain in New Jersey. The supermarket has made me into a walking and talking dictionary of food labels.
In 2013 I made the move to fulfill a dream of mine. I was accepted to Columbia University for a Masters Degree in Nutrition and Education and shortly after landed an amazing job as a Wellness Dietitian for a prominent corporation in New York City. As I was about to make the big move to the big apple, I got the best, most life-changing surprise. On July 21st, 2015, Leila came (pictured above!). Although I was unable to move to NYC, I became a mom and it has brought me closer to my family and has made me a more efficient, patient and loving person. I continue to work as The Worksite Wellness Nutritionist in NYC and completed my masters degree in May of 2017.
If you are like millions of Americans, we spend many of our waking hours at work (sad, but true). Since many of us have no choice to do otherwise, we must find ways to incorporate healthy eating, stress reduction and wellness in our workplaces. Subscribe to my newsletter and follow me on instagram (@worksitewellness) as I share tips and tricks to stay healthy both at work and at home.
That's my story so far...join me as it evolves and unravels.
In Good Health,
