As a registered dietitian, Robyn has headed the nutrition services department in a large teaching hospital and maintained a private practice where she provided diet therapy to individuals and familes.She continued to spread the word about eating right when she taught nutrition courses at three New Jersey colleges and wrote The Wedding Dress Diet (Random House, 2000) and Fighting the Freshman Fifteen (Three Rivers Press, 2002). Working as a nutrition consultant allowed her to reach an even bigger audience writing magazine and newsletter articles and serving as a media spokesperson for numerous food and beverage companies, including The Coca-Cola Company, McNeil Nutritionals LLC, and Nestle.
Having mastered all that she could to answer people's questions about "what" they should eat, she then obtained her master's degree in cultural anthropology to better understand "why" people eat what they do. She has been exploring that world, and how it impacts our beliefs and behavior, ever since. She lives on the Jersey shore where she takes daily meditative walks along the Atlantic and tends to her organic vegetable and herb gardens.
