About the Author

Jessi Haggerty, RD

I have been working in the health and fitness field for over 8 years and am currently living and working in Boston, MA as a Registered Dietitian, Personal Trainer, and Movement Instructor.   I received my BS in Nutrition and a minor in Dance from Boston University in 2009 and completed a dietetic internship at Oregon Health and Science University in 2011.

After finishing 5 years of schooling, and a number of certifications and projects, I began craving to combine my skills and resources authentically, and think that Just Bee is the perfect place to start: a community bringing food, movement, and people together under one virtual roof.  I’m excited to share my insights with clients and community, and hope that it serves as both an educational resource and sounding board for followers.

I created Just Bee to offer a broader perspective on food and nutrition.  “Healthy” is not defined by the nutrition facts label on the back of a grocery store item, but by the impact a food has from our earth, to your body.  All of my advice and recipes are compiled together to provide you with solutions to sustain our earth and our food system, sustain your health, and sustain your lifestyle.  The ultimate definition of “sustainability.”

Besides writing and consulting for my blog and business Just Bee, I currently work for Whole Foods Market as a Marketing Team Leader and Community Liaison in Somerville, MA.

When I am not writing,  you can find me dancing… almost anywhere, as well as practicing yoga, hiking, teaching in the community, cooking, and eating really good food.
