Jessica Wegener, RD, CSSD, LMNT
I have been a Registered Dietitian specializing in Sports Nutrition, Disordered Eating, Corporate Wellness , Pediatric Nutrition, PCOS Nutrition, and Adult/Child Weight Management since 2003.
My passion for food and nutrition began as a young girl in Minnesota helping my mother cook for our family of six and participating in the local 4-H program. I attended the University Of Nebraska on a full scholarship for gymnastics, where I completed my Bachelors Degree in Nutritional Science & Dietetics, I then went on to obtain my RD license by completing my Dietetic Internship at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota. While in college and graduate school I worked at Husker Power Performance Nutrition in the athletic department at the University of Nebraska.
From 2004 through 2009 I worked at Remuda Ranch Eating Disorder Treatment Center, in Chandler, Arizona. I have experience working for the United States Air Force from 2010-2014 and I am currently the nutrition consultant for Athlete’s Training Center Sports Performance & Physical Therapy and SquareOne Health Club.
My husband and I moved back to Omaha to be closer to family after having our first child in November of 2009, and then added a second boy in October of 2012. I obtained my Certification in Sports Dietetics in 2010, since then I have had the pleasure of working with many elite, club, high-school, and masters level athletes.
I have a true passion for helping people develop healthy relationships with food & exercise. I believe that eating should be a joyful experience that does not control us but allows us to make easy healthy decisions. I look forward to working with you to achieve your personal nutrition goals.
The mission of Positive Nutrition Omaha is to provide nutrition education, corporate wellness and nutrition counseling by using the ethical guidelines of The Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics and focusing on the positive impact of food. This includes promoting a positive physical and mental relationship with food.
