Joan Marks began her career as a dietitian over 27 years ago. She currently owns and operates Dietista, a private nutrition consulting practice. Joan’s practice areas include medical nutrition therapy for adults (fatty liver, gout, high cholesterol, obesity, type 2 diabetes and other), pediatric nutrition (autism, constipation, growth concerns, picky eating and other), menopause, weight management, and general health and wellness. In 2022, Joan became a self-published author on Amazon with the release of My Menopause Journal.

Joan’s approach when it comes to mentorship and working with other dietitians includes: drawing on a broad range of professional experiences to help guide, support and provide feedback, to teach using practical and real-life examples and scenarios, and providing tools to help navigate complex cases and promote skill development.
