Shira Sussi is a registered dietitian, culinary enthusiast and nutrition expert.
She is passionate about helping others cultivate a healthier relationship with food through optimal nutrition, conscious choices and mindfulness.
Shira brings her extensive experience as an outpatient clinical dietitian at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYP) where she counseled adults with chronic diseases referred from top Columbia doctors. She also served as the dietitian at an NYP outpatient medical practice, improving nutritional outcomes for adult, obstetrics and pediatric patients.
As a longtime foodie, Shira favors clean, fresh, and in-season ingredients. She is a strong believer that eating should be nourishing, satisfying and enjoyable – ideally in the good company of others.

Prior to a career in dietetics, Shira worked at Travel + Leisure magazine. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and has been featured in and contributes to various publications.
In addition to her role as a dietitian, Shira completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2017 at Tangerine Hot Power Yoga. She can often be found practicing on (and off) the mat in and around Brooklyn, or spending time with her little yogi, Lior.
