Hi, I’m Francesca Simonella, your Nutritionist Biologist specialized in Udine, with many years of international experience and in the USA.
As Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I own skills in varied areas: clinical setting, medical research, teaching and food science. I am so lucky to have gained professional experience both in Italy and the United States.
I was born and raised in Italy, where I completed my graduate and post-graduate studies, worked in medical research and passed a national board to practice as nutrition biologist. After working in the field of nutrition education, I got admitted into the competitive Nutritional Sciences Program of the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. What a honor to be the first European admitted to the program!
I currently work in Italy as both nutrition professional in private practice and nutrition expert in academic and non-academic settings (which require English language skills). My approach is centered around Mindful Eating, Medical Nutrition Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I am an active member of the Italian academy of Biologists and the American Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics, of which I am currently International Affiliate.
