Marie Bieber, RD, CSP, CDN
What up y’all?! I am Marie, aka “Pearl,” a real food Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, self-proclaimed Nutrition Genius, travel enthusiast and all around dweeb.
I am fascinated by the enterohepatic circulation of bile and I love avocados so much I named my dog after them. My favorite word is fetus, I love the five second rule (because microbes make the world go ’round) and I think butter, salt, and garlic can bring about world peace. Growing up I used to think french fries were a sufficient lunch, pizza before practice was just a good way to carb load, and I only needed vegetables with dinner. Wrong-o. I stumbled into the nutrition world in a weird way but the second I did life just clicked. From that moment on I knew I was meant to save the world with fruits and vegetables.
My educational background includes degrees in Nutrition and Psychology and a Dietetic Internship at West Virginia University Healthcare in Morgantown, West Virginia. I believe real foods can heal and improve quality of life and I’m here to teach you how they can help you. I am not the food police, I am not here to yell at you for your dietary trespasses. I am here to lead you from temptation and help you eat delicious food that makes you look and feel great. And of course, I am here to make you laugh and actually enjoy learning.
I see clients in person in Rochester, New York but if you have a phone or a computer I can see you from wherever your heart desires. Contact me to set up an appointment!
Karlee Bushnell, RD
Hi all – so happy to meet you! My name is Karlee Bushnell and I am a Registered Dietitian. I was born and raised in Rochester, NY, and have such a pride for this city. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition Management from Rochester Institute of Technology and completion of my dietetic internship through Simmons College in Boston, MA with a focus in medical nutrition therapy and treatment for eating disorders.
I realize that nutrition and wellness can be confusing topics, and we live in a world where “diet culture” seems to be the norm. I believe in celebrating body diversity, and that “health” looks different for everyone. I have a passion for implementing intuitive eating and body positivity into everyday life and helping individuals wade through mixed media messages. I am also a certified facilitator of the Body Project, which is a body acceptance and eating disorders prevention program to improve body positivity, media literacy, and self-confidence in individuals.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling, attending concerts, and spending time with friends, family, and my pets.
