Lisa Cicciarello Andrews, MEd, RD, LD
CEO, Sound Bites Nutrition
My friends affectionately call me “Nutrigirl”. Being Italian, food has always been central in my life. My mom struggled with her weight and my dad dealt with complications of diabetes. I decided a career in nutrition might help me understand the connection between food and health more clearly. I will be the first to admit- I enjoy good food! I am not an extremist. I believe in balance, not restriction. I like chocolate and wine just like you.
My career began in 1990 as a clinical dietitian at the Cincinnati VA Medical Center. I became well-versed in illness, but over the years my focus shifted to wellness. I picked up side jobs and gained experience writing, presenting and providing cooking demos through my work at the Nutrition Council of Cincinnati. After receiving my Masters at UC in 1998, I became an adjunct instructor and have taught undergraduate, graduate and nursing students. I launched Sound Bites Nutrition in 2008 to focus my time on health promotion.
I enjoy teaching individuals and groups, but also love cooking, developing recipes and blogging. I serve as a nutrition expert for Netwellness.org, dietitiancentral.com, food and health communications and Phoenix magazine. I have worked as a Brand Spokesperson and Media Rep. In this role, I combine my health and nutrition knowledge with key product messages to help improve sales and increase product loyalty. I have been on Fox 19 and other networks and am seen as a trusted, knowledgeable health advisor and influencer in Cincinnati. Brands I have worked with include KIND Snacks, Applegate Meats, Litehouse Foods, Libby’s Vegetables, BODYARMOR, Keystone Meats, Imusa and several other brands.
I have been honored to receive a few awards including Ohio Recognized Dietitian of the Year (2017), a People’s Liberty Project grant (2016) and Ohio Recognized Young Dietitian of the Year (2002).
