Anna Khesin, Registered Dietitian
Seeing patients experience their personalized plan of action, transform their health, help their clothing sit more comfortably, all while developing a healthy relationship with food is priceless for me to witness as their dietitian and coach! It truly is the driving force behind why I LOVE what I do.
After receiving my bachelor’s degree from the Didactic Program in Dietetics from Queens College, I went on to complete a rigorous dietetic internship through Long Island University (LIU) Post with a concentration in clinical nutrition, as well as receive training on the use of a low FODMAP diet for IBS by Monash University. Since becoming a Registered Dietitian, my experience has spanned the clinical, corporate, private, and community settings, allowing me to educate and counsel a diverse group of individuals.
My most recent accomplishment is the publication of my book: Living Well with Hemochromatosis. This book is the first to be written by a dietitian on this topic and offers an easy-to-understand overview of the condition, nutrition and lifestyle tips, along with a collection of simple and delicious recipes.
AK Nutrition and Wellness, LLC was founded to offer evidence-based nutrition therapy in a personalized and approachable way. Every patient has different goals, varying lifestyles, and unique nutritional needs, which is why every appointment is tailored to YOU.
I loved how much Anna listened. For the first time I felt heard. Anna approached my whole life as part of my healing, not just a "diet". She never pushed me to try anything I wasn't comfortable with, but also questioned and pushed me just enough. I also LOVED the recap of our conversations and goals. I was able to be present during our appointments instead of trying to copy down all of the information.
