Samantha Franceschini, MSCN
My name is Samantha & I am a clinical nutritionist from the Jersey Shore. I hold a Master of Science in Nutrition & Integrative Health, from Maryland University of Integrative Health, one of the leading universities for integrative health in the nation. Additionally, I have also trained under the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM, AFMCP) and currently a Certified Nutrition Specialist Candidate.
I transitioned into the field of nutrition & functional medicine after working in the hospital for many years, witnessing a flawed system & how symptoms were often managed rather than finding the root cause. In my studies, I have found that using a whole person approach to meet the unique needs and health goals for each individual person has made a tremendous impact in their health and ability to create a healthy sustainable lifestyle. I believe that there is always a solution to every symptom and when you are able to find the root cause, you can make that huge impact. Creating a healthier lifestyle starts with the first step, along with tiny baby steps to push you in the right direction. Changes do not happen overnight & majority of the time it takes time.
I am currently practicing at Parsley Health NYC. I integrate contemporary science while acknowledging the connection between body systems and the interconnection of the mind and body. I love working with individuals, as well as families & find so much reward in this profession. When you make an impact in someone’s life you naturally create ripples & influence everyone around them. Changes start out as tiny ripples and soon after your creating waves.
When I am not practicing nutrition, I enjoy traveling, working up a sweat in a barre class, walking up to the beach with my miniature Pomeranian, and getting creative in the kitchen. My passion for health and wellness inspired the creation of Nutritionbysam. I love creating quick and easy recipes that are not only healthy, but taste amazing to! I also have a huge sweet tooth and love creating healthy treats that are gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free.
