Nicole Matala, Dietitian

“I decided to become a registered dietitian because I think it's fascinating how food affects our bodies and our health. I wanted to learn more about how what we eat can help prevent disease and make us feel good.”




The most rewarding experiences as a dietitian happen when I see patients make healthy changes that they didn't think they could make. I've seen patients lose weight, reduce their blood sugar numbers and increase their physical stamina. Seeing those changes and the benefits they provide to my patients are what I find rewarding.

Hometown: Scranton, Pennsylvania

Surprising Facts:
If I weren’t a dietitian, I probably would have become a physical therapist.
