Madeleine White, RDN, CDCES (aka Maddie)
ASSOCIATE REGISTERED DIETITIAN
Hey there! I’m Maddie White, an eating disorder and clinical dietitian passionate about helping others restore relationships with food, body, and mind. As a Health At Every Size® provider, I strive to provide inclusive, compassionate care to each and every client – regardless of weight, shape, color, size, orientation, disability, or disease. I believe Intuitive Eating holds a space for everyone. By taking an individual approach with each client, together we learn the best way to navigate your journey to food and body freedom.
I attended San Diego State University, earning a Bachelor of Science in Foods and Nutrition. I went on to complete the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics Internship with Iowa State University, where I continued my experience in eating disorders as well as clinical nutrition. In between, I spent a year living in Rome, Italy. It was here where I began to see how clearly our American culture distorts our relationships with food and body. Upon my return, I began working with the American Diabetes Association, where I managed youth programming for San Diegans living with type 1 diabetes in addition to bringing awareness to those living with all types of diabetes through policy activism and community education and outreach. After transitioning to work in a San Diego eating disorder facility, I realized how fulfilling it was to be a part of someone’s recovery. Spending time with clients of all ages, I adopted skills in adult-centered learning, multiple therapy modalities, and communication with pediatrics and adolescents. While a little unconventional, these experiences have made me the dietitian I am today..
Aside from my time with Nutrition Instincts and the eating disorder community, I work at a local San Diego Acute Care Hospital incorporating Nutrition Instincts’ values in the clinical setting. In my free time I love to travel and explore San Diego because as a local, I STILL haven’t seen it all.
