Chelsey Bauer is a registered dietitian and a certified lactation counselor. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in human nutrition and foods from West Virginia University. She also obtained a master’s degree and completed a dietetic internship program from SUNY Oneonta, where she found her true passion for dietetics and was able to work with city school districts to provide education about the importance of good nutrition for young students.
Chelsey’s desire to help kids achieve optimal growth and reach their goals in life led her to pursue a career in pediatric nutrition. She found such a wonderful place at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, where she is able to help young children and families achieve their nutrition goals, both short term and long term.
Chelsey recently started a private practice called Simply Thrive with Chelsey to help reach families that may not require hospitalized attention but would benefit from nutrition guidance all the same. She shares valuable health information on Instagram (simplythrive_wc) and on her website (www.simplythrivewc.com).
