In between all of this reporting, the twins still manage to find time to be on the review board for Turner’s UPWAVE – as well as ongoing featured experts on numerous radio stations across the United States and around the world.

The twins have also earned some prestigious recognition among their peers in the medical community. They were chosen as keynote speakers for the New Jersey State Annual Dietetic Association meeting and were featured speakers for the International Society of Sports Nutrition’s Annual meeting. Plus, they also lectured at the Javitz Center for the Medical Spa and Resort Expo.

Tammy and Lyssie were always passionate about nutrition – even early on in their lives. They are Cum Laude graduates of the University of Maryland and received their post-graduate dietetic internships at Emory University and Meredith College. They are ACE-Certified Personal Trainers and are members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and active members of the following Dietetic Practice Groups: Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutrition (SCAN), Dietitians in Integrative and Functional Medicine DPG (DIFM), Nutrition Entrepreneurs (NE)). Tammy is the past Director of Member Services for the Nutrition Entrepreneurs Dietetic Practice Group. The twins are also members of The New York State Dietetic Association.

When the twins are not trying to energize the world, they volunteer their nutrition expertise at the Gladney Foundation, an organization working to improve the lives of children, adoptive families and women planning adoption and chase around Tammy’s twin daughters.

Basically, for the twins, nutrition isn’t just a job – it’s a true heart-felt calling. They love what they do – and their passion is palpable to all who meet them. The twins are on a dedicated mission to help make our world a healthier and happier place – one person at a time.
