Melissa Williford, RDN,CD,LMNT

About

Since she was 10 years old, Melissa Williford has always wanted to be a dietitian. She was trained at the University of Northern Colorado and interned throughout most of Eastern Colorado, even with the same dietitian that sparked her interest in nutrition. Melissa has special expertise in Adult Weight Management. Her clinical interests are weight loss, diabetes, bariatric surgery, and eating disorders. She loves being an RD because it allows her to help so many people. She appreciates the feedback her patients provide on what has helped them since that same information is often helpful to share with other patients. 

In her free time, Melissa loves hiking, traveling, and learning about other cultures. She’s an amateur nature photographer and enjoys cooking foods in new ways with new ingredients. She loves getting creative with keto, vegan, and other special diets using nontraditional flours, milks, and other substitutions.
