Jordyn Worby, MS, RD
Hello! I am Jordyn Worby, MS, RDN. I completed my Masters degree in Nutritional Sciences and dietetic internship through Rutgers University, where I gained hands-on experience in several different clinical, community nutrition, and food service management roles across New Jersey. I currently work part time at Penn Medicine Princeton House Behavioral Health as a Clinical Dietitian, where I conduct comprehensive nutritional assessments for patients with behavioral and mental health disorders, including eating disorders, substance use disorder, bipolar, schizophrenia, and depression. I work to implement evidence-based interventions to help patients manage symptoms, improve mood stability, and enhance overall well-being. Outside of working a clinical role, I have also been a certified personal trainer for almost 7 years! I have specializations in fitness nutrition and corrective exercise, and I worked as a fitness coach at F45 while I was completing my Masters.
My passion for health and fitness began out of a personal interest in my undergraduate schooling. I started working out to be my healthiest self, and I fell in love with weight lifting. After my undergraduate degree I studied for my certified personal training exam and when I got to the nutrition section, I knew I found my passion! Now I strive to help others be their healthiest self. Food plays one of the biggest roles in both our physical and mental health, and I aim to make healthy eating easy for you - because it can and should be! I take an all foods fit approach to eating, meaning no foods need to be restricted or cut out to be healthy.
My scope of practice includes weight management, diabetes, kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, GI disorders, sports nutrition, mindful eating, and disordered eating/eating disorders.
Leanna Clark, RDN
Hello! I am Leanna Clark, RDN, and Chef. I completed my Bachelors of Science in Nutrition, and my dietetic internship at Rutgers University, with a primary focus in medical nutrition therapy. During this time, I was able to observe, understand, and engage in the role that dietitians play in interdisciplinary care; I learned about a variety of complex diseases and medical conditions, and how to intervene. I have 3+ years experience working as a dietitian with children, adolescent and adult nutrition in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
My passion for food started at a young age, cooking in the kitchen with my family. Prior to my Bachelors Degree, I earned my Associates Degree in Culinary Arts at Brookdale Community College. I worked as a personal chef and also conducted multiple cooking classes with a primary focus in whole food nutrition. My unique background enables me to translate the science of food into the nutrition care process. I am passionate about helping individuals understand the role that food plays in the function of the body, and how it can help to improve one's physical well-being, based on their individualized needs. Through my personal experience, I recognize what is needed to help others explore their relationship with food, and the steps needed to improve their eating habits.
Julianna Szatmari MS, RDN
Hello! I am Julianna Szatmari MS, RDN. I graduated from Montclair State University of NJ with my Bachelor of Science, Nutrition and Food Science Concentration Dietetics, in 2021. Furthering my education, I then graduated from combined MS/DI (Master of Science/Dietetic Internship) program from Marywood University of PA with my Master of Science in Nutrition, in 2023. During my time as a dietetic intern, I successfully completed the community, food systems, long term care, acute care and professional practice rotations at sites such as the Community Food Bank of NJ (CFBNJ), Monmouth University, Spring Hills Post Acute Care and Raritan Bay Medical Center of Old Bridge. Learning to become an RD, I also successfully functioned as a member of the inter-professional team to care for patients using evidenced-based guidelines while following local and federal regulations,conducted nutrition-focused physical exams, performed medical nutrition therapy, and utilized the Nutrition Care Process of all populations.
The most frequent question that I have been asked is “What made you go into dietetics?”. Well, I could say that I love food, but it is so much more than that. For myself, my passion is driven by what food can do for our bodies, including our physical and mental health, promoting happiness and longevity for an entire lifetime. Your relationship with food is one of your earliest and most meaningful relationships. It is also a relationship you will have for the rest of your life… and it might as well be the best relationship that it can be. I am a dietitian -against- dieting, where I believe it is most valuable to create positive & healthy changes to your own unique diet, for life!
My specialties include disordered eating, intuitive eating, eating disorders of pediatrics, adolescents and adults. My scope of practice also includes weight management, diabetes, renal disorders, liver disorders, PCOS, pre and post natal nutrition, GI disorders, cardiovascular disorders, high blood pressure and food allergies. When I am not working, I am spending time with my Corgi, Rhea, cooking, hiking or crafting!
I look forward to working with you!
