Our owner and primary dietitian, Nora Ainsworth, MS, RDN, CD-N, is a Registered Dietitian and CT certified Dietitian/Nutritionist. Nora Ainsworth is not only a CT licensed Dietitian, she is also CT certified science teacher. She worked in CT public education for 7 ½ years, 5 of those years as a middle school science teacher in Oxford, CT. She left teaching to pursue a career in dietetics and attended Keene State College in NH, an accredited dietetic institution, where she received her second Bachelors of Science degree in Health Science- Nutrition. Nora completed an extensive dietetic internship at Danbury Hospital where she received comprehensive training in clinical inpatient, outpatient, and foodservice management. Working with people and providing support for healthy lifestyles is what Nora loves to do. She recognizes that everyone has different needs and busy lives, and a one-plan-fits-all model just isn’t practical in our world today. She looks forward to sitting down with you to help break down barriers at your own pace. Nora feels that ultimately all foods can fit, but it’s usually the frequency and portion sizes that need to be altered to achieve a healthy balance. At Nutrition First we use a non-judgmental approach and the client creates the goals they are ready to tackle. We know that achievable success is the key to a healthy future!
