Alexa McDonald, MS, RDN, CSSD, RYT
I'm a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist (RDN), Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) and 200 Hour RYT Certified Yoga Instructor (RYT) practicing throughout the Northern & Central New Jersey area. After completing my Masters in Foods & Nutrition from NYU and becoming a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, I knew I wanted to connect and work with clients, athletes, and teams through more than just my day job. From there, ENW was born.
The complexities of individualized nutrition often can't be answered in just a few short questions. At ENW, I take a balanced approach to nutrition to help my achieve their health and performance goals, while achieving a healthy relationship with food and exercise. I have over 7 years experience working closely with interdisciplinary teams to develop dietary strategies and treatment plans in the areas of sports nutrition, eating disorders, disordered eating, GI disorders, hormone imbalances, and weight management. My specialty in sports nutrition allows me to support complex performance and nutrition-related goals related to injury, immunity, eating disorders, hormones, recovery, and a healthy relationship with food/exercise.
I earned my Bachelor’s in Dietetics from University of Maryland, College Park and completed my dietetic internship with ARAMARK in the New York Metropolitan Area. I currently work with University athletic teams to educate and provide proper sports nutrition. In addition to good nutrition, I'm an avid runner and big fan of yoga, all foods, travel, movies, ice cream, and overall balance.
