Melissa Jaeger

Jennifer has more than 28 years of experience as a dietitian, helping foster healthier communities, workplaces, families and individuals. She has enjoyed a lifetime working with food. Her family owned and operated multiple supermarkets in the Pittsburgh area for more than 100 years. Not only has she worked on the retail side of food, but she has also spent many years as a clinical and community dietitian, practicing medical nutrition therapy and counseling in acute care and outreach settings. Before joining Hy-Vee, Jennifer co-founded a meal delivery service concept where she developed and produced healthy family-style meals with the focus on promoting the importance of sharing dinner together.

Jennifer’s passion is helping people live their fullest lives through the principles of healthy and balanced nutrition. Her goal is to inspire lasting changes that will not only improve health and well-being, but also infuse joy and satisfaction through the wonderful world of food. Jennifer strongly believes that our food choices are the gateway to health, happiness and longevity. Providing support and education is her mission.

Jennifer received her Bachelor of Science degree in food/nutrition and dietetics at Penn State University in State College, Pennsylvania. She completed her pre-professional practicum in Philadelphia. She is a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Minnesota Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and a mother of three young adult children.

When Jennifer is not in the aisles at Hy-Vee, she is traveling around the country visiting her kids, reading a great book, exploring new places and always trying new recipes to share with clients.
