Yaisli completed her bachelor’s and master’s in Nutrition and Dietetics and a minor in Health & Fitness Marketing at Florida International University in Miami, FL. She is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (LDN).
She decided she wanted to go into nutrition after she noticed her performance in high school sports improved when her nutrition improved. Yaisli started researching health-related topics and fell in love. Her favorite part of being a RDN at Nutrition as Therapy is the exposure to different cultures and having the opportunity to improve her cultural awareness as a dietitian. She is also one of our Spanish-speaking dietitians!
Yaisli’s favorite off-time activity is spending time with her daughter and her two dogs.
Her favorite plant-based food is NUTS! She’s nuts about nuts! She also loves a good trail mix or apples with peanut butter! Yaisli’s favorite meal is falafel wraps. She makes her falafel wraps with whole wheat pitas, air-fried falafels, lettuce, thinly sliced tomatoes, thin sliced pickled beets, some hummus, and vegan tzatziki sauce.
