Michelle’s Story and Approach
Michelle Pillepich, MPH, RD is a non diet registered dietitian working to help people achieve a positive relationship with food and their bodies. She works from a Health at Every Size (HAES) philosophy and strongly believes in Intuitive Eating. Michelle believes that all foods can fit into a healthy lifestyle, and eating well can be simple and fun! Most importantly, she loves showing clients that pursuing health is multifaceted and includes so much more than food, and it doesn’t include restriction or rules.

She attended The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for her Masters in Public Health Nutrition. During her dietetic internship, Michelle completed rotations at the Durham County Health Department, Medstar Georgetown University Hospital, and Monte Nido Laurel Hill residential eating disorder treatment center. She has experience working as both a chef and dietitian in residential eating disorder treatment and is thrilled to be bringing her skills and knowledge to a new setting.
