Ginny Kisch Messina, MPH, RD
When I first headed off to college to become a dietitian, I was a carefree omnivore. I’ve loved and felt great compassion for animals all my life—but for two-and-a-half decades, it didn’t occur to me that this had anything to do with how I should eat. You can read more of my story—about how the little light bulb over my head finally lit up—in my first blog post.
My work prior to vegan advocacy took place in diverse settings. I’ve worked with pregnant teens, migrant farm workers, and families. As a nutrition instructor at Central Michigan University, I taught principles of nutrition science and of public health education to dietetics students. I was the director of nutrition services in a medical center serving more than 50,000 patients, and have developed nutrition education materials for many organizations including the U.S. government’s national cholesterol program. You can read more about my background and work on my curriculum vitae.
Now, I devote my career to giving people the tools and knowledge they need to adopt a healthy vegan diet and to ensure that they will stay healthy and happy for the long term. I share this information through my blog, my books, and presentations. I’ve recently co-authored three books for vegans and veg-curious people: Vegan for Life, Vegan for Her, and Never Too Late to Go Vegan.
