Patty Nell Morse


Patty Nell Morse, CDE, RDN In her 30 years as a clinical dietitian, Patty has found that even strict medical nutrition therapy can, and must, emphasize joyful and confident eating and feeding based on ecSatter and fdSatter. Patty finds that using the Satter models transforms her counseling from information-giving into conversations that truly help people get to the root of their eating and feeding problems. Patty has worked in specialty pediatric clinics, in Early Intervention for children with developmental disabilities, and currently does ongoing nutrition counseling in a trade union HMO clinic.
