Ms. Darrow-Menegaz, a registered dietitian and integrative & functional nutritionist, is the founding owner of Nutrition for Wellness as well as a certified Mindfulness instructor and life coach. She is a former adjunct instructor of Integrative and Functional Nutrition at the Maryland University of Integrative Health and taught Nutrition and Food Studies at New York University.
She was the creator of Nutrition-Toolbox(TM), a popular nutrition assessment tool for healthcare professionals.
She has been actively involved in the health and wellness field since the late 1970s, well before her formal training. Virginia's focus has always been on integrative and functional nutrition in medicine and lifestyle therapies. Her passion and mission is to inspire and support you to take charge of your health to prevent, manage, improve, and, when possible, even reverse imbalances and disease.
Her advanced training in integrative and functional nutrition as medicine includes studies with the Institute of Functional Medicine, Functional Medicine University, Medicine from the Earth, and The Women's Integrative Medicine Institute, and specialty training in Nutritional and Integrative Medicine for Mental Health from the Korn Institute.
A lover of all things active, some of her additional former hats include martial artist, triathlete, and fitness trainer.
She lives in Maryland with her greatest treasures (along with her health), her husband and their two daughters.
