Registered Dietitian – Intuitive Eating Specialist
Green Mountain at Fox Run, located in Ludlow, Vermont, is embarking on an exciting expansion of its pioneering women’s weight management program. In addition to having been an innovator in the field of healthy weight management for over forty years, we will soon be opening a first-of-its-kind Binge Eating Disorder Treatment Center designed to provide psychiatric and other clinical treatment services to women suffering from serious binge eating issues. The Center will be unique in its capacity to treat women in a manner and setting that differs from similar programs throughout the U.S.
We are recruiting a full-time Registered Dietitian to lead the nutrition counseling department for our women’s weight management program and our new Binge Eating Disorder Treatment Center.
Green Mountain at Fox Run is a women’s only residential retreat that helps women understand why diets do not work, and provides a deep understanding of the emotional and physical issues that result in unwanted weight gain, compulsive overeating and binge eating. We provide concrete strategies and approaches to help improve our clients’ relationship with food based on concepts such as mindful and intuitive eating, strategies that can lead to sustainable behavior change designed to help achieve a healthy weight.
Desired Skills and Experience
The ideal candidate for this role will be someone who believes in our philosophy, has experience working with higher-weight women who are tired of dieting and may have a history of binge eating and compulsive overeating, and someone who is a skilled educator both individually and in a group/classroom setting.
We are seeking a dynamic, non-traditional Registered Dietitian with a passion for health behavior change to work closely with a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals. The successful candidate will have strong interpersonal and communication skills, a great deal of positive energy, exude credibility, and will bring new ideas to our innovative program. The successful candidate will also be instrumental in developing the clinical nutrition program for our Binge Eating Disorder Treatment Center, under the leadership of the Clinical Director. He or she will also develop a national reputation as a thought leader by representing our program philosophies through speaking engagements, participation in relevant professional organizations, and media outreach. Candidates with established or a developing interest in functional medicine/nutrition are welcomed.
Certification as a Registered Dietitian and a minimum of 3-5 years of clinical and counseling experience is desired, preferably in a teaching setting. Salary will be commensurate with experience, and a full complement of benefits will be included as well.
