Stefanie Haris, DCN, MS ( she/her/hers)
Doctor of Clincal Nutrition
I am a graduate of Maryland University of Integrative Health with a Doctorate in Clinical Nutrition. I chose to switch to the holistic path of integrative nutrition after a decade of working in the biotechnology industry. Along with my doctorate, I have BS in Biology from Temple University and my MS in Biomedical Sciences from Thomas Jefferson University. I am passionately drawn to the integrative nutrition area because I witnessed how changes in diet and lifestyle helped to save my parents’ lives and have worked to improve my own health and wellness.
I grew up in a household that celebrated foods and gathering around the table to enjoy a meal. I love exploring foods from around the world and understanding its role in diverse cultures. I believe that a healthy and intuitive relationship with food and our own body is key to determining one’s best life. I feel that we can have an influential role in healing ourselves, and I look forward to being a healing partner with clients during their journey. Through my schooling I have come to appreciate a personalized, holistic, and natural approach through the lens of evidence-based medicine.
I am an ally to LGBTQ+ and BIPOC persons and recognize my numerous privileges; being a white, cis-hetero, woman, who is straight size, able-bodied and neurotypical, from an upper middle-class upbringing with access to higher education and is a U.S. born native English speaker. I respect all individuals and will work to understand one’s background to best support their personal goals.
I currently live in Philadelphia, with my partner and our sassy and silly toddler and our two cats Maceo and Mary-Kate. As a family we like to explore the various playgrounds, parks, and farmer’s markets in the area. I have been practicing yoga for the past 15 years and enjoy finding new and challenging ways to move my body. I love spending time with my family and friends and spending time at the Jersey shore.
