Jennifer Ward, RD, LDN, CLC, CPT, CHWC Specialty: Dietitian for Children, Teens, Adults Phone 413-329-3411
I have been a Registered Dietitian for more than 30 years. What I love most about my work is the opportunity to partner with my clients and enable them to reach their personal health and wellness goals through achievable and sustainable lifestyle strategies. I do my best to make each session interactive as success increases when clients get to play an active role in creating their wellness plan. Health and nutrition is so much more than simply counting calories. Paying attention to food quality, meal timing, setting up an environment to support making the right choices, mindfulness and exercise are also critical factors to success.
More than 25 years of my work as a dietitian has been devoted to worksite wellness/health in both nutrition and fitness. I have worked with employees from more than thirty sites in Berkshire County and have enjoyed helping clients through a wide variety of activities including: individual nutrition counseling, creating health challenges, running weight loss programs, leading supermarket tours, developing heart rate based training programs and creating nutrition workshops.
One of my most rewarding experiences through Wellness was becoming a certified Canyon Ranch Institute Life Enhancement Program Leader. I have also been a Master Instructor for the SPINNING®program with Mad Dogg Athletics, Inc. since January of 1998. The job has connected me with literally thousands of instructors and students who have transformed their health and lives through nutrition and exercise. I have also presented nutrition courses, rides and workshops at a total of 16 internationally attended SPINNING®conferences, better known as WSSC.
I became a Wellcoaches® Certified Health and Wellness Coach in December of 2015. I have been a Certified Lactation Counselor since October of 2003. I also earned certificates through the Commission on Dietetic Registration on Adult Weight Management and Pediatric and Adolescent Weight Management.
