Hi, my name is Valerie Waters and I am excited to be the in-store nutritionist at the new MARTIN’S Food Markets in Richmond, VA. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in dietetics and consumer foods from Virginia Tech. I am actively involved in our local and state dietetic associations and currently serve as president of the Richmond Dietetic Association.
Nutrition and wellness are on the minds of our customers and in our community now more than ever. As a dietitian, having a grocery store as a teaching aid is priceless! Many of the questions I get from customers through individual consultations or in classes can be answered directly as we navigate the aisles and get to the source of the problem: what we put into our carts!
My goal is to provide each client with the tools and knowledge necessary to make realistic changes to meet their specific health goals. I have experience in a variety of health issues, but hold a special interest in both adult and pediatric weight management and heart health. One thing I have realized from all of my clients is that some of the biggest outcomes and rewards can come from making small yet significant changes to diet and lifestyle.
