Jessica Whatley MS, RDN, LDN
Lead Dietitian | she/her/hersRead bio
Jessica attended Samford University receiving an undergraduate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics, she completed an internship and Master of Science in Nutrition at Samford University. As an undergrad, she founded an organization on campus to bring awareness to eating disorders and was an intern with Alsana for 8 weeks before coming on full time as a direct care staff.
Jessica credits Alsana’s mission and individualized care for each client as her inspiration to join the team. What set Alsana apart was the client-centered care and nutrition philosophy. She loves that as a dietitian she not only talks about food but her client’s relationship with food. She could tell from the very beginning that Alsana treated the whole person and not just the eating disorder and help clients find that there is hope for a full recovery. The most rewarding part of her job is being able to walk alongside clients as they learn to heal their relationship with food and body, as they discover that all foods can fit within your life.
In her spare time, she loves to spend time with her family, her husband, and her dog. She enjoys anything outdoors including going to the lake, the beach, and skiing.
