Kayla Jessop, RDN, CDN, CEDRD-S
What is your current position?
How did you get started in your career?
I started working in outpatient counseling where I helped individuals using medical nutrition therapy. Occasionally, I saw people with disordered eating and eating disorders and found that I preferred working with this population. Watching the healing process of their relationship to food and body is a very rewarding experience! After I found my interest in eating disorders, I sought out jobs that only treated eating disorders which is when I found BALANCE Eating Disorder Treatment Center. I later started building my private practice on the side.
What advice would you give to someone new to the field?
Seek out supervision! I am very grateful to have gotten weekly supervision as it has not only helped me therapeutically, it has greatly impacted the well-being of my clients. Supervision has shaped me to the dietitian I am today. Thank you Jessica Setnick!
