Janine’s passion for helping others with health and diet issues through food and nutrition are deeply personal. When Janine was twelve years old, she was diagnosed with severe hypertension- dangerously high blood pressure- and spent three months in a New York City hospital. After trying numerous medications and experimental surgery, Janine and her family found the only cure to be a complete change in diet and food intake. The life-changes she made through food and diet have had a dramatically positive impact on both Janine’s health- and later on her career. Today, her passion often centers on helping today’s busy families live a more healthful, yet delicious, everyday life. In addition to providing clinical services to her ever growing client list on a day to day basis, Janine has hosted a series of lectures at Yorkville Preschool in New York City. Her lecture series is aimed at encouraging young mothers to instill nutritionally sound diets in their homes for both themselves and their children.
Janine resides in New York City with her husband, Dr. Jonathan Whiteson, and their two sons, Harris and Ellis.
