Professional Qualifications - I am a fully qualified Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with 9 years experience working in hospitals, public health and private practice.   I'm an experienced and engaging speaker - as the director of Mather Hospital's "Rethink your Drink" program I held more than 50 workshops across Suffolk County at worksites, schools and libraries and as part of the speakers bureau I was sought out for providing nutrition talks throughout the region. As a volunteer I have run several nutrition workshops with City Harvest and I participated on the wellness committee in our school district for the past two years.


I have completed the certificate in training for adult weight management and for child and adolescent weight management.  I received my bachelors degree from Tufts University and completed my didactic program of dietetics at Hunter College, New York.  It should be noted however that I have taken absolutely no classes in magic or wizardry.

Gemma's presentation to our parents was very well received.  The content was great and the pace and flow were perfect.  Gemma is a fun and engaging speaker and everyone left feeling inspired to make simple healthy changes for their family.  We got lots of positive feedback from the attendees and would definitely recommend her as a speaker.
