“I had the privilege of seeing Kim Scarpa as a nutritionist, and had a great relationship and learned so much at the end of my time with her I can now call her my friend….. she is always ready if I have any questions, and checks in with me often…. Great nutritionist, and knowledgeable in her field.” -Anon
“It has been awesome working with Kim Scarpa these past two years. She helped me with weight control the first year, and I lost 80 lbs! Despite regularly exercising, I never realized how too many carbs and fat and too much sodium was negatively affecting my weight and health. In addition, Kim helped me realize I was not getting all the protein my body needed. The second year our goal was fitness, and I put twelve pounds back on but in the form of muscle. Kim helps me plan meals in advance when I go shopping, as well as maintaining my vitamin and mineral needs so I can remain healthy. The biggest advantage of all is that I have energy all the time now!“

“I enjoy working with Kim Scarpa. I love inviting her to participate in our family events here at the Early Learning Center-Wilmington. Kim enthusiastically participates in every and all of our events to which she is invited. Kim brings with her an enormous amount of helpful nutrition resources to her meetings and information tables. At our meetings, Kim very easily connects with and engages all of our families. She discusses with them their child’s nutritional needs and is able to provide useful information to help resolve their concern. Kim also continues to reach out to us to share any changes or nutritional updates that might come to her attention and would be beneficial to our program. It is a great pleasure to work with Kim Scarpa and to have her as a resource for myself and our families.” -Helen Shallow, MSW
