Emily Fisher

Nutritionist

Emily’s oldest memory with food starts on a step-stool with her twin sister. The pair would pretend to listen to Grandma Lois’ molasses cookie instructions, while really waiting for a chance to sneak a taste. Though Emily loves making a mess in the kitchen, she often wishes a magic fairy would appear to wash her dishes. What makes all those dirty pans worth it? Indulging in nourishing food with her loved ones. In her eyes, good health is more than just the food on your plate – it’s also seeking ways to nurture the mind, body, soul, and earth.

Tran Hoang

Nutritionist

A friend once told Tran that if she ate a different apple variety each day until the day she died, she would still not have tried them all. Tran’s response? “Challenge accepted.” And so began her mission in life. Luckily for her, Washington has an amplitude of apples and being a New Seasons Market nutritionist only helps her on her quest. Tran finds food and nutrition so fun and exciting that grocery shopping is her favorite pastime.

Spirit Vegetable: Turnip

Christi Reed

Lead Nutritionist

Christi loves her job. Her favorite part? Connecting with people over the ultimate unifier: food. She believes eating food as nature intended is the path to feel-good health and happiness. She’s totally obsessed with all things coconut (earning her the adorable nickname “Coco”) and has lived deliciously gluten-free for over 15 years. But deep down, she’d really just love to be a mermaid.

Spirit vegetable: Artichoke.

Kayla Petersen

Nutritionist

Although Kayla originally wanted to be lion tamer when she grew up, she’s pretty happy with her role as a New Seasons Market Nutritionist: “It’s a dream come true,” she says.  “I get to chat with customers about how really tasty food can help them feel well now, and promote future health.” She believes in eating lots of veggies with good fats—think butter, coconut or olive oil—and if she had her way, would never use a measuring spoon or cup.

Spirit vegetable: Arugula

Leah Kriewall

Nutritionist

Leah’s a self-proclaimed nerd with a black belt in Taekwondo. She was born and raised on a tiny farm in the Midwest, but Portland’s been home for a decade. Her nutrition philosophy? Know where your food comes from and eat it with gratitude and joy. As Joan Dye Gussow said: “Eating should be a pleasure, not an intellectual exercise.” In her spare time, she hits the trail and soaks up Vitamin D with her family.

Spirit vegetable: Radicchio

Amanda Nelson

Nutritionist

Amanda’s been with us since day one. In fact, she gave birth to the first New Seasons Market baby. As for motherhood, she’s made it count: Amanda’s led the New Parent and Breastfeeding Support Group at our Concordia store for over 11 years, along with coordinating thousands of nutrition classes. Her inspiration? A lifelong passion for food, from her true love of kale to her collection of rare honey from around the world.
