Andrea Berez, MS, RD
Promoting long-lasting health and appropriate lifestyle changes!
I have been a Registered Dietitian for over 18 years, specializing in pediatric and family nutrition for the past 12 years. I use my passion and motivational-interviewing counseling style to help adults, children, teenagers and families effectively address their health and weight-related issues. Whether challenged with eating disorders, overweight, obesity, disordered eating, gastrointestinal-related conditions or general wellness needs, I help my clients set their individual goals and work toward long-lasting health and lifestyle changes.
Since 2004, I have been involved in coordinating, counseling and doing research for various multidisciplinary pediatric and family weight management programs, including A New Weigh and Healthy ME: Pediatric Lifestyle Changes Program at Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. I have also greatly enjoyed being a preceptor for many dietetic and other health professional internship programs including Rutgers University, Drexel University, Montclair State University, and have also worked with Rutgers University pediatric MD fellowship program clients’ needs.
In addition to my clinical work and precepting, I have always had a passion for public speaking. I have presented educational seminars and have taught many cooking and nutrition classes to parents, children, teachers, and fellow RD and MD colleagues. I continue to participate in numerous health and wellness fairs in the state. During these events, I enjoy sharing information with families and children through play and fun.
I earned my Masters Degree in Clinical Nutrition from Rutgers-Newark (formerly UMDNJ) and my Bachelor of Science Degree in Dietetics and Nutrition from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
I enjoy spending time with family, friends and my gentle giant dog, Millie. We love to cook, sing and dance, and spend time outdoors, especially at the Jersey Shore when the weather is nice.
