Eat Fit NOLA Founder
504-842-9572 | email@example.com
As a lifestyle dietitian and founder of Ochsner’s Eat Fit nonprofit restaurant initiative, Molly has managed the nutrition program at Ochsner Fitness Center in New Orleans for over 20 years, working with thousands of clients, ranging from people like you and me to professional athletes. Through it all, she learned what drives us and motivates us, what works and what doesn’t, and what derails even our best intentions. Having the ability to dial into these behaviors and challenges has fueled and inspired Molly’s entire professional career. As a regular contributor to national and local publications, Molly covers all things related to nutrition and wellness. She has written for The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate since 2006 and has been the nutrition expert for New Orleans’ ABC affiliate WGNO since 2009, with weekly TV segments on WGNO’s Good Morning New Orleans, “Fueled with Molly.” She also hosts a weekly podcast , FUELED wellness + nutrition with Molly Kimball, where she addresses the latest health trends and interviews some of the country’s leading experts.
Maria Sylvester Terry
Social Media Manager
Maria Sylvester Terry is the Social Media Manager for Eat Fit. With a unique background in the humanities and nutrition science, she is focused on one mission: keep nutrition simple and uncomplicated! Formerly a secondary English teacher and instructional coach, Maria applied her skills as an educator to her passion for nutrition. Between 2016 and 2019, she embarked upon a career change to become a registered dietitian nutritionist. In that brief period, she completed her MS in Nutrition at Drexel University, presented her sports nutrition research at the American College of Sports Medicine annual meeting, and provided nutrition and culinary education in Philadelphia public schools. Maria, her husband Caleb, and their two dogs moved from Philadelphia to New Orleans this past year for the final step in her journey, a dietetic internship through Tulane University. She is an avid member of Krewe du CrossFit and loves running through City Park. She'll never turn down a cup of coffee. To Maria, the most important role a dietitian can play in one’s life is educating others to see beyond the black-and-white food rules and embrace a big-picture concept of health.
