Aspire to inspire.


Rachel Begun


I work with change-makers leading the way in creating more healthful, sustainable and just food systems.



I'm a registered dietitian and certified natural chef with extensive nutrition strategy, communications, education, and event planning experience.

As our food environment expands from personalized nutrition needs to global food issues, I have a fire to be the change I want to see in the world. I do that by working with the people and organizations leading the way in creating more healthful, sustainable and just food systems.

I enjoy helping them identify their higher purpose for existing, which serves as the foundation for an authentic and powerful marketing and branding strategy.  My experience is in bringing together food and nutrition science, consumer trends, and industry data with expert advisors and internal stakeholders to build strategic education and communications platforms that establish these change-makers as credible industry thought leaders.

I've conducted 1000+ interviews to provide food and nutrition expertise to top media outlets, including ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox news station affiliates around the country, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Huffington Post, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Chicago Tribune, O The Oprah Magazine, Parade, Eating Well, Fitness, Shape, Women’s Health, MSNBC, CNN, and many more.

It is my pleasure to serve as Scientific/Medical Advisory Council Member for Beyond Celiac, Advisory Board member for the #GiveHealthy movement, Culinary Council member for the Sterling-Rice Group, and LA Chapter Board Member for Step Up.

I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Emory University in Atlanta, GA with a B.A. in Biology and a concentration in pre-medical studies and earned a M.S. degree in Nutrition Education from Columbia University as well as completed a didactic dietetic internship program there. To round out my food and nutrition skills, I completed the natural chef certification program with Bauman College.
