Meet Allison Schulman
Finding the right diet that meets your medical needs, budget, daily routine, and personal preferences may seem like a chore, but nutritionist Allison Schulman knows from years of experience that changing your eating habits can be enjoyable and beneficial to your health. Despite what the infomercials may say, your new diet isn’t waiting in the “Diets” aisle of your local bookstore or grocery store. Only a qualified nutritionist who truly cares about the lives of their clients can deliver substantial and long-term nutritional guidance.
To guide her clients toward a healthier lifestyle, Allison works with individuals and families in New York, NY to develop customized plans that take into consideration each client’s medical history, available resources, daily routine, preferences, and diet. She can provide tailored plans for women who are pregnant, babies, children, and teens, and other types of patients. Read on to learn more about the professional.
Allison earned her bachelorʼs degree in Food and Restaurant Management. The degree gave her key insights into how our country’s food industry works and tips on how to motivate behavioral changes. She then went on to earn her masterʼs degree in Clinical Nutrition from New York University. The advanced studies in nutrition science teach courses on how nutrients interact with the body, even down to the micro-level. The studies also gave her an understanding of the causes and potential treatments for eating disorders. She then completed her dietetic internship at New York Presbyterian Hospital and worked as a Clinical Dietitian at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
