About this episode
Jessica is a Registered Dietitian working with a variety of different sports, athletes, and elite teams performing at the highest level. Her passion for nutrition and performance came out of her personal struggles with food and body image. Jessica’s professional resume includes stints with Kobe Bryant’s training facility, the Los Angeles Clippers, military, brand partnerships, and her private practice. We connected over a common brand partnership, 2Before, a New Zealand blackcurrants supplement, and here discussed the importance of sharing authentically and building trusting relationships.
In this episode we talk about:
- sports nutrition for elite teams and high performers
- thinking about your body as an athlete: function > aesthetics
- knowing who and what to trust for nutrition information
- 2Before: a New Zealand blackcurrants supplement
- brand partnerships and sharing with integrity
