I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over 17 years of counseling experience primarily in the area of prenatal, post-partum and pediatric/adolescent nutrition. Teens and “Tweens” take up a substantial part of my personal and professional life. I specialize in working with young people and their parents to set the stage, for a lifetime of healthy eating and wellness. In additional to professional training, I have lots of "on-the-job" training! Personally, I went into Pediatrics specifically when I was having trouble getting my own kiddo to nurse and then his brother, my second born, decided to be picky. SO picky. They are teens and preteens now, which has opened up a whole new world of eating challenges. I have 3 boys (15, 13, 11 yo) and a girl (9 yo). We also often have a foster baby around - keeping my toddler skills fresh. Most of our foster children have had multiple food sensitivities/allergies/aversions and arrive under- or malnourished.

My coaching style

I have an informal approach to educating young people and their parents about nutrition. Proper nutrition at a young age, involves the whole family, from the buyer to the chef to the consumer. I challenge families to forget everything they think they know about nutrition, as we start with the basics and work our way along from there. Families are dynamic, based on ages and stages, educational delivery needs to adapt. We go at your pace, striving throughout our journey to create nutritional balance, practical preparation, intolerance elimination if need be, functionality, personal involvement, budgeting and enjoyment of all foods.

Knowledge is truly power when it comes to properly fueling our bodies and our family’s bodies. Knowledge, and a plan.

Heather Richmond
As the parent of a teenage daughter, body image is a concern, especially with current social influences. My 16 year old daughter attended a course with Heather, and came home not only with a deeper understanding of her health, but an excitement to further her knowledge on healthier choices and implementing them daily.

Heather helped me so much with not just learning the breakdown of food and meals, but the value of nutrition. I was able to apply what she taught me into my everyday life. We would weekly review my meals for that week and compare it to what she had taught me a balanced meal should look like. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for insight and knowledge into all things nutrition.
