Meet The Team
We have been approved as CNS supervisors by the governing board. However, this website and SNC's programs are not affiliated with the Board for Certification of Nutrition Specialists℠ (BCNS℠) or the Certified Nutrition Specialist® (CNS®) credential, or the American Nutrition Association® (ANA®).
We are a separate entity that has been approved to provide support and guidance based on the regulations laid out by the above organizations. We have been practicing for a collaborative 8+ years. We are blending our knowledge in integrative & functional nutrition, coaching, community education, and research. We were once where you are now!

Linnette is a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Illinois, and Florida. Linnette will be working on North Carolina and North Dakota licensures soon, so CNS interns from those areas are supported, too.

Personally, Linnette is a mother, wife, and advocate for being body-positive. She loves cooking and being with her family, enjoys a good book, gardening, traveling, which hasn't been as much as she would have liked (maybe one day it will be more), and being outside when the weather is nice.
