Bio

Ashley Koff RD knows the key to resolving our national health crisis is to empower individuals to achieve better health from better nutrition. Koff explains “better nutrition is simple, it just doesn't feel that way for most, regardless of their resources.” Thus, Koff created the Better Nutrition, Simplified program, a toolkit of resources including a one page Nutrition Plan, hundreds of nutrition ‘Pit Stop’ ideas, Quick Guides and Patient Consults, to get Better Nutrition for Better Health.

An award-winning nutrition expert, Koff helps lead the national conversation on better nutrition as a speaker, author, media and industry expert. Selected among CNN’s top 100 health makers, recognized in the Top 10 Social Health Makers in Nutrition (Sharecare.com) and among the top “50 Natural Influencers” in health and nutrition to follow on Twitter (NewHope360 and Shape.com), Koff was also selected for the first list of Top 10 Registered Dietitians in the US by Today’s Dietitian Magazine.

Koff shares her message with millions, regularly, as a go-to expert for the country’s leading media outlets, appearing regularly on local and national television. Koff lends her expertise to and writes articles for many leading national publications, digital platforms, and was the featured on-air dietitian for several reality shows.

Koff continues to maintain a high-profile, international nutrition practice, is a member of several Scientific Advisory boards and serves on the faculty of the Continuum Center for Health and Healing at the Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City.
