View BioDeirdre Smith serves Colgate as a Dietitian. Her roles on campus include confidential, one-on-one nutritional counseling for students and staff, as well as speaking to campus groups, panels, and classes. She is a resource for those with any special dietary needs, and /or food sensitives and allergies, or if you are looking for guidance and tips on creating a healthy diet. She is available to meet for one or multiple sessions to discuss your nutritional concerns. Deirdre joined the Colgate community after working for a partial hospitalization treatment practice for eating disorders. It was during this experience that she developed a strong interest working in the field of eating disorder recovery and prevention. She is passionate about helping individuals heal their relationships with food and work towards creating a healthy balance around food, diet, and exercise. She is attracted to the principles of Intuitive Eating and Health At Every Size (HAES). She believes that there is no universal diet and that health goes far beyond your plate and exercise routine. She is here to provide information and support in making choices that are both nourishing and supportive of your lifestyle and nutritional needs. In addition to working with eating disorders and disordered eating, she has a variety of experience in the world of nutrition, including medical nutrition therapy, community outreach nutrition, food safety, and cooking demonstrations. Deirdre received her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition Management from Rochester Institute of Technology and became credited as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist in 2008. She has also received additional training as a Certified Yoga Instructor and as a Health Coach. It is her goal to positively influence others through diet and lifestyle changes so that they may improve their relationships with food, diet, and health.
