Jillian Ondreyka, MPH, RDN, IFNCP, IBCLC
My work experience includes working in the University of Michigan's Maternal Infant Health Program; The University of Michigan's Briarwood Center for Women, Children, and Young Adults; Wayne County's Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) at both the local and state levels; the headstart program; and consulting for various organizations.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from Eastern Michigan University in 2014, where I also minored in psychology. Upon completion of the national exam, I became a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.
I continued my education in varied interests including breastfeeding, functional nutrition, gut health, microbiome, epigenetics, food allergies, and adverse food reactions. I earned my Integrative and Functional Nutrition Certified Practitioner (IFNCP) credential in 2017 from the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy. In 2018, I completed a training program provided by Lactation Education Consultants and received my Certified Lactation Specialist credential. I returned to school in 2016 to add public health to my toolbox. In 2018, I graduated with my Master’s in Public Health in the program Health Behavior and Health Education from the University of Michigan. In October of 2018, I also passed the international exam to become a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
My professional memberships include the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), Michigan Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (MAND), and the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy (IFNA). I am a member of several dietetic practice group including Dietitians in Integrative and Functional Medicine (DIFM), Nutrition Entrepreneurs (NE), Public Health/Community Nutrition (PHCNPG), Women's Health (WH) and Pediatric Nutrition (PNPG).
I enjoy feeding my curious mind and drive to learn by attending conferences and webinars on the topics of maternal and infant nutrition and integrative and functional.
