Meet The Dietitian

At East Carolina University, we know that students who eat better perform better. Good nutrition is essential for academic success, long-term health, and overall happiness and wellbeing. At ECU, all meal plan holders have access to our on-site registered dietitian (RD) for help making healthy meal choices on campus.

Registered dietitians are food and nutrition experts who translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living.

If you need help navigating our dining halls or finding food options on campus, please reach out to our on-site RD, Sierra, at
