Lainey Younkin, MS, RD, LDN
Lainey earned a Bachelor of Science in Food Science - Nutrition & Dietetics and a minor in Psychology from Clemson University. Lainey then moved to Boston where she completed her dietetics training at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). During her time at MGH, she worked in inpatient and outpatient settings counseling individuals on a variety of nutrition conditions including weight management, cardiovascular health, diabetes, gastrointestinal issues, pre/post-natal care, and oncology. It was through her training at MGH that Lainey learned the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach to health and wellness. She loves how OMBE utilizes this integrative approach. Following her time at MGH, Lainey earned a Masters of Science in Nutrition Communication from the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy. She has worked internationally at the European Food Information Council (EUFIC) in Brussels, Belgium and has taught nutrition in rural Peru. In addition, she has helped develop content for Joy Bauer, dietitian for NBC's The TODAY Show, and her work has been published in Tufts Nutrition Magazine and EatingWell Magazine. Lainey’s specialties include weight loss and management, cardiovascular health, and diabetes. In addition to individual counseling, Lainey loves leading workshops, seminars, and group programs. If you’d like to learn about a specific nutrition topic or join a group program, let Lainey or OMBE know! In her free time, Lainey enjoys running, rock climbing, exploring new restaurants, baking, traveling, shopping, and staying up to date on the latest fashion trends.
