Bio:

Olivia Whitaker, MS, RDN, LD is a clinical dietitian who recently shifted focus to pediatrics. She was drawn to pediatrics after adopting her son with special needs who requires feeding therapy, speech therapy and the forever long list of every therapy under the sun. Olivia also recently birthed a child and quickly found herself researching everything about pediatrics and nutrition. Olivia states, "so here I am soaking in all the knowledge of pediatrics and sharing the knowledge I gain as I go along. I mainly work with kids ages 0-5 and truly love this new career change!"
