    Meet Sammi

    Sammi Haber Brondo, MS, RD, CDN

    Sammi Haber Brondo is a NYC-based Registered Dietitian with an equal love for Brussels sprouts and chocolate chip cookies. Sammi received her Master’s Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics with a Clinical Nutrition concentration from New York University. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan and completed her one-year intensive dietetic internship at the James J. Peters Bronx VA Medical Center. Sammi is the author of The Essential Vegetable Cookbook, a cookbook with 130 different recipes based on 30 vegetables, all with 8 ingredients or less.


    Before starting her practice, Sammi worked as a clinical dietitian doing nutrition counseling and meal support therapy for patients with a range of eating disorders. She has also worked as an outpatient dietitian in a hospital setting, where she counseled patients with conditions such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Sammi is an active member of the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics and the Greater New York Dietetic Association.

    As an avid fitness enthusiast, Sammi spends most days running or trying different workout classes. She is step obsessed; during her free time, she can usually be found walking the streets of Manhattan. Sammi believes that a healthy diet is truly one that includes both vegetables and chocolate. To her, eating healthy is a lifestyle that should be easily sustainable and enjoyable. Sammi feels that no one should live without chocolate (or other favorite indulgences) and with her approach, you’ll never have to.


    Sammi's cookbook, The Essential Vegetable Cookbook, is available on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble and Target. Head to the Cookbook section to learn more about it.

    Nutrition Works NY Interns

    Julia DiPietrantonio

    Julia graduated in 2017 from Indiana University with a Bachelor's Degree in Human Development & Family Studies and a Minor in Nutrition. Currently, Julia is a graduate student in New York University’s Masters in Clinical Nutrition Program.


    For as long as she can remember, Julia has had an innate passion for nutrition and learning how to help others feel their very best. During her sophomore year of college, she was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. The diagnosis further highlighted the importance of nutrition to her, and showed her not only the value of incorporating nutritious foods into the diet, but also of continuing to include her favorite treats as well.


     In her free time, you can find Julia happily catching up on the latest nutrition trends, experimenting with recipes and exercising at her favorite workout classes. Besides a big bowl of roasted veggies, Julia’s day is not complete without some sort of dark chocolate or almond butter (crunchy of course)!

    Ashley Gish

    Ashley graduated in 2004 from Babson College with a Bachelor's degree in Business Management. After receiving her undergraduate degree, she worked for 10 years as a buyer in Men's and Women's fashion. She is currently pursuing her Master's degree in Clinical Nutrition at New York University.


    Ashley is originally from Boston, MA. She grew up cheering on the runners of the Boston Marathon every year, and made it a goal to one day run the race herself. After college, she began training and quickly realized the importance of proper nutrition to maximize performance. From then on she was hooked on all things health and fitness. Two marathons, many shorter races and thousands of yoga/cycling/barre/dance classes later, she finally decided it was time to turn her passions into a career and enrolled in the graduate program at NYU.


    Ashley lives in New York City with her husband, five year old daughter and two year old son. In her free time, Ashley can be found cooking up all kinds of deliciousness in her kitchen, running around with the kids at the park or sweating it out in a DanceBody class. And of course Ashley’s healthy lifestyle would not be complete without ice cream!
