REVVed: to have made something more active or energetic.

SEATTLE NUTRITIONIST

Hi! I’m Marissa

I am a Seattle nutritionist, dietitian, corporate wellness specialist, mom of two girls, and founder of REVV Health.

At my core I love food. I grew up in NYC from a food-obsessed family who definitely passed on “the foodie trait.”

While my passion for food initially led me to pursue a career in nutrition, it was only through my own journey of coping and healing my relationship with it that I found my true calling.

Now, I’m dedicated to sharing my training and expertise with others, empowering them to transform how they eat in order to embrace a healthier, happier life.

For all you go-getters out there, I am here to say you don’t have to compromise your well-being to get what you want.

There is a better way.

My Story

I’m not afraid to admit it: I’m competitive AF. It’s what drove me to excel as a collegiate athlete, ace my academics, and become a top performer in my career.

But with that drive came a relentless pursuit of perfection—a constant feeling of never being quite satisfied. And let’s talk about how I coped with that pressure: bingeing, restricting, and overexercising, all because I believed my body was something “to be controlled.”

To add to the mix, I was dealing with the mysteries of PCOS and IBS. Back in the ’90s, no one really understood those two conditions. It felt like paddling upstream in whitewater rapids. 

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), as well as the support of my loving family, set me on the path to recovery. But it wasn’t until 2007 that my life truly transformed.

That’s when I discovered Ellyn Satter’s eating competence model and the intuitive eating framework. These approaches helped me break free from the grip of disordered eating that had haunted me since I was just 13 years old. 

It is for this reason that I am committed to helping the next generation, including my own kids, live a life free of diet culture.

I firmly believe that all foods have a place in your life, and I will show you how to make peace with food AND achieve the health you deserve.

The REVV Health Difference

You are not just another number.

When I say I care about your health and well-being, I mean it. I go to great lengths to get to know my clients and discover what matters to them. Because at the end of the day that’s why you’re here: your health allows you to do the things that matter to you. That connection is always top of mind to me and I make sure it stays top of mind to you, too!

I elevate others – I believe in TEAM. 

As a former collegiate athlete and later, professional who worked cross-collaboratively at tech companies, I believe “Revving Up Your Health” is about building partnerships with the right level of support.  I value collaboration-based, client-centered work to achieve realistic, everyday health solutions.

No matter what you come in looking to achieve, I will listen to your needs and stick to the science when helping you make decisions. 

That is the REVV Health Difference.

Philosophy and Approach

Health Means Different Things to Different People

Health is as unique as we all are. I will focus on your narrative. This is uniquely your journey.

Food Heals

Food can quite literally heal our bodies. But food can also satisfy the mind and heal our soul. I will teach you how to unleash that power — all of it.

Anyone Can Learn to Cook

Cooking does not need to be gourmet for it to taste good. I will share nutritious, delicious and easy solutions that make it fun to be in the kitchen.

A Gateway Toward Exploration

Whenever you eat, you open the doors of possibility to learn about new food, its nutrition, and/or new cultures.

All Foods Can Fit

The joy of eating does not have to beat out eating for health or vice versa. I will dismantle the notion that you need to choose.

Self-Efficacy

I will rely on the theory of self-efficacy, research by Psychologist Albert Bandura, to help you gain confidence in your abilities.
