Jessianna Saville - Renal Dietitian with The Kidney RD & Kidney Nutrition Institute
Hi, I’m Jess. I’m a renal nutrition expert who is obsessed with advocating for nutrition as a treatment for preserving kidney function.
My passion is helping lift people out of fear of kidney disease and give them a path toward kidney health with the power of nutrition. I believe people have the power to change and every single person that wants to preserve their kidney health can do so with guidance.
A little about me: I’m the founder of The Kidney RD. I worked in dialysis for almost ten years before immersing myself in helping people BEFORE dialysis. I heard way too many of my dialysis patients say, “I wish I would’ve known,” and knew I needed to shift my services to a population that was underserved.
Along with kidney health, I love amazing food and sharing amazing food with people. Some of my personal favorites are raspberries, pecans, sweet potatoes, and very fine chocolate. I love to try ethnic food and don’t mind experimenting in my kitchen which can sometimes be to my family's delight or disgust.
One of my gifts is inspiring with positive energy. I love to help people see a positive pathway and feel confident in their choices.
