Alysia Jimenez, MPH, RDN

Registered Dietitian

What do you enjoy or find most fulfilling about caring for patients?

I love seeing how minor adjustments to diet can make a big difference on health.

What attracted you to a community health center for your practice?

As someone who grew up in a low-income family and neighborhood. I know the struggles that come with trying to live a healthy lifestyle but not having access to healthcare or nutritious foods. I want to be that support that I didn’t have growing up to my community and I found that here with Adelante.

If you could be anything else, what would you want to be?

I would love to work in creative media or marketing.

Do you have hobbies or a way you like to spend your time away from work?

In my free time I love to read and try new creative hobbies.

Do you have a favorite book, movie or TV show?

Favorite show: Schitts Creek
Favorite book (for now): The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
