Erin Palinski

Erin Palinski is working to promote nutrition and wellness as an entrepreneur, author, motivational speaker, and corporate consultant. In just a few short years since becoming a Registered Dietitian, Erin has established a successful private practice, created and published two weight management programs, launched a web-based business for health professionals, and established herself as a motivational speaker and media consultant on various wellness and nutrition topics.

Erin received a BS in Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise from Virginia Tech. She then went on to complete the Supervised Practice in Dietetics through the College of Saint Elizabeth. She has received the Certificate of Training in Childhood and Adolescent Weight Management, the Certificate of Training in Adult Weight Management, and is a Certified Personal Trainer through ACE. Erin was also recently nominated for recognition as Young Dietitian of the Year in New Jersey.

Erin founded her private practice, Vernon Nutrition Center, LLC, in April 2004, just eight months after becoming a Registered Dietitian. Her private practice has now expanded to two office locations in NJ and serves thousands of patients each year. Her practice provides individual counseling for children and adults in the areas of weight management, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, food allergies, gastrointestinal disorders, general wellness, and sports nutrition.

Erin also provides speeches, workshops, and lectures on a variety of nutrition and fitness topics to corporate, educational, and community groups on a regular basis. Ms. Palinski has also contributed her nutrition expertise to several nationally recognized television and radio broadcasts as well as print media. Erin is the creator and author of the "Healthy 'n Fit Weight Management Program," a structured, individualized and group weight management program for children and teens which is being implemented by dietitians and hospitals throughout the country. Erin also recently released "Healthy Resolutions Weight Management Program" which is a structured weight management program for adults.

Erin has also founded to provide effective and affordable educational materials to nutrition professionals working in outpatient, clinical, and community settings.

Erin works to inspire fellow nutrition professionals who dream of starting their own business ventures. She hopes to show them that with a dream, determination, hard work, and persistence, it can be possible!

For all who believe they need more experience before starting a business, Erin stands as a role model of what is possible sooner, rather than later! And her advice is to “go for it”; don’t look back at your life, wishing you had tried your own business.
