Hello! My name is Debbie Davis and I am the founder of the Wellness Plate.

My journey toward living a life of wellness began at family meal time. As a mom of three energetic boys, providing my children nutritious, real food became front and center in my life. As my children grew, my quest for knowledge and appreciation of the vital role that food plays in our lives also flourished.  I eventually made the decision to return to school to become a registered dietitian. 

Why a registered dietitian nutritionist you may ask?

  “Registered dietitian nutritionists — RDNs — are the food and nutrition experts who can translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. RDNs use their nutrition expertise to help individuals make unique, positive lifestyle changes.” Registered Dietitian Nutritionists must complete a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, complete 1200 hours of supervised practice through an internship, pass a national exam, and complete continuing professional education requirements to maintain an RDN license.  In other words, RDN’s have extensive training in medical nutrition therapy, food management, and community and individual nutrition education and counseling. We are the “nutrition experts” who stay current with the newest nutrition research and findings.

As a registered dietitian nutritionist, I have worked in a variety of settings including clinical work at local hospitals, outpatient nutrition consultations, cooking classes, nutrition education for school-aged children, and wellness classes for “55 or better” adults.  In addition, I have worked many years counseling oncology patients who are currently being treated and those who are cancer survivors.

My goal is to educate individuals and organizations on how to achieve a healthy, balanced lifestyle.          
 I believe that small positive changes can have a profound, positive impact on our lives. Many small changes add up to a healthier life for you. 
We are all a work in progress. I am passionate about helping you to lead a healthier life.   Together we can work to empower you with the knowledge and tools to live a life of wellness.
