Autumn has a diverse array of experiences in the food and wellness world. She spent three years working in food justice and sustainability for the Food Recovery Network and Bon Appetit Management Company before shifting to nutrition and yoga. Autumn started her own nutrition and yoga private practice, where she explored a diverse array of opportunities - from teaching cooking and nutrition to elementary and middle schoolers to hosting nutrition workshops for students and employees to working with clients one-on-one on nutrition behavior change to teaching private and group yoga classes. Over the past few years, she's honed in on writing, dipping her toes in academic writing and editing, creating original content and editing for newsletters, blog posts, and websites, and authoring her own wellness and self-love focused newsletter throughout the pandemic. Last year, she started a private practice, mendinground nutrition and yoga, with her friend and colleague Jasmine Hormati, where they help their clients heal their relationship with food and their bodies.


Autumn graduated from American University with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and went on to receive her M.S. in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology from Teachers College, Columbia University. She completed her dietetic internship and clinical training through Teachers College, where she worked with a variety of private practices focused on gastrointestinal health, intuitive eating, and eating disorders, as well as with an eating disorder treatment center.
