Jessica joined the ALDI team as a Corporate Dietitian in January 2016. She completed her nutrition education at the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition Science. Jessica went on to complete her Dietetic Internship in Wellness at Bradley University, where she gained experience with retail, community and clinical nutrition. Before coming to ALDI, Jessica worked at a health club and at one of the leading natural retailers.
Jessica’s favorite thing about being a dietitian is helping people with food allergies and food sensitivities find freedom with food. With a love for good food, Jessica strives to help others fuel their lives with food that’s nourishing and delicious. Jessica lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband. In her free time you can find her in the kitchen cooking, or on her yoga mat.

Join me monthly for healthy eating inspiration, trends, and practical tips in the Dietitian’s Corner.

In the meantime, we’ve got tons of healthy living info right here on the ALDI blog — check out (this), (this) and (this)*.
