Eat Fit NOLA Dietitian
Emma Poling is the Eat Fit NOLA Operations and Marketing Dietitian. After graduating from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics, she returned home to New Orleans to attend the Tulane Dietetic Internship. A New Orleans native, she knows how important food is to our culture and lifestyle - everything we do revolves around food. As such, her primary motivation is helping people to foster balance and enjoyment in their lives as it relates to nutrition and their health. With a background in counseling bariatric and renal populations, she understands the effects of the role that diet plays in disease prevention and management. Emma also has 6 years of experience in the service industry, and loves connecting and building relationships with our restaurant partners. When she is not working with Eat Fit you can find her working out in City Park, cooking or enjoying a dinner out, and attending as many festivals in New Orleans as she can.
