Jessica "JZ" Ziesel MSPH, RDN, LDN
Jessica Ziesel is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist with a Master of Science in Public Health. “JZ” has experience working with clients from all walks of life & greatly enjoys understanding and adapting to the unique experiences and needs of each individual. Although she specializes in diabetes care (prediabetes, type 1, type 2, gestational), she also enjoys working with clients with PCOS, pre- and post- partum needs, vegetarian & vegan diets, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and general healthy eating/nutritional optimization.
JZ feels deeply passionate about improving clients’ relationships with food and removing stress and guilt from eating. She promotes an anti-diet, sustainable, Health At Every Size approach, and promotes enjoying all foods, beyond just assessing them for their nutritional qualities. JZ aims to make healthy eating simple by providing her clients with useful ideas and realistic recommendations to fit their unique lifestyles and goals. She also finds great satisfaction in dispelling nutrition myths and misinformation and provides her clients with clear, evidence-based information and answers to their questions.
When JZ is not at Nourish, she can be found cooking a new dish for family & friends (@jz_in_the_kitchen on Instagram), working out, hiking, painting, traveling, or exploring local restaurants in Baltimore.
