Jenna Corbin, MS, RD, LDN, CSSD, CLT, PES, CES
With a father and uncles who played; having grown up at the ball-field as a “baseball sister”; and practically learning to keep score before she could read—you can say baseball is in Jenna’s blood. Watching a great game or playing over-the-line on a warm summer day are some of her favorite past-times. This love for baseball has blended seamlessly with her education and training in sports nutrition, allowing her to successfully team-up with athletes to help them exceed their goals—on and off the field.
As a Registered/Licensed Dietitian and Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, Jenna has worked with many athletes from grade-school age to professional. Before leaving California, she was the Team Sports Dietitian for UCLA Athletics; sports nutritionist for Athletes’ Performance (now EXOS) at the Home Depot Center; worked throughout Orange County with the Healthy for Life program interacting with preschool through high school children/young adults promoting physical activity, proper nutrition, and overall healthy lifestyles; and was a clinical dietitian at St. Jude Medical Center.
Recently, she has embraced an exciting personal life change by moving to Florida to be with her husband and start a family. She is currently working as a dietitian at St. Joseph’s Hospital, periodically consulting for EXOS, and providing individual consults and lectures on sports nutrition. She also specializes in food sensitivities as a Lifestyle Eating and Performance Therapist. When she’s not ‘working’, you can find her outside training, hiking, running, snowboarding, snowmobiling or playing a sport; or else inside cooking or reading up on the latest in the field, with a game on in the background.
Jenna received her undergraduate degree in Foods & Nutrition from Cal Poly Pomona and Master’s of Science in Human Movement at A.T. Still University, with an emphasis in sports conditioning. Understanding the power of the synergy between nutrition and physical training, Jenna works with athletes to meet their unique, sport-specific needs.
