Madeleine Putzi MS, RDN, CLC®

With 7 years of experience working in the nutrition space counseling pregnant and postpartum women and their infants and children, I found my passion in helping families strive for the best health outcomes for themselves and their children. I strive to eliminate barriers and increase continuity of care & health equity for all for postpartum breastfeeding mothers to get the support and encouragement they need to meet their short and long-term goals. I am an advocate for the huge role nutrition plays in preventative healthcare, from pregnancy to infancy, toddlerhood and beyond. With a specific focus in breastfeeding education and promotion and infant nutrition milestone development, I want to share my thoughts and ideas with the world.

A little about me…

I completed my undergraduate degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with A bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics. Three years later, while working for Women, Infants and Children in Pittsburgh, PA., I completed my master’s degree in Nutrition from Adelphi University. In that same year, I decided to learn more about breastfeeding and took coursework followed by an exam to become a Certified Lactation Counselor® to better serve and counsel pregnant and postpartum mothers. A few months later, I applied and was accepted into the piloting PA Department of Health WIC Dietetic Internship, in which I completed 1200 hours of supervised practice focused in community health, K-12 school food service, and clinical dietetics in a hospital setting, which led me to completing my internship and passing my Registration Examination for Dietitians to become Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.
