Jessi Masserano, MS, RDN, LD
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
Jessi believes that an individualized approach to eating and lifestyle is the most effective way to make sustainable changes. She strives to help others make peace with food by separating eating from self-worth. Her view is that there are no “good” or “bad” foods because all foods help to fuel a healthy body. Jessi’s goal is to help people tune into their hunger and fullness cues in order to eat what their bodies need and enjoy the experience.
Jessi earned her B.A. in Modern Languages at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA, and her M.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics at Saint Louis University in Saint Louis, MO, where she also completed her dietetic internship.
Jessi began her dietetic career in Saint Louis working as an outpatient dietitian for infants, children, adults, and expecting mothers. In Dallas, she has continued to provide outpatient nutrition counseling to people of all ages. Her favorite part of nutrition is meeting new people – even in a clinical setting, food has the power to bring people together.
While originally from Albuquerque, Jessi loves living in the Dallas area. In her free time, she enjoys the outdoors, whether it’s hiking, walking, or finding a park to have a picnic. She also loves to cook and try new recipes to share with friends and family. On an average evening, you’ll find Jessi relaxing at home with her husband, Ben, and cat, Tot.
