My name is Johane Filemon and I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over 15 yrs of experience in the field of nutrition. My academic background is in Exercise Science and Dietetics with a master’s degree in Food and Nutrition Science.
I started my private practice, Wonderfully Nutritious Solutions, LLC, in 2014 after a few years in the clinical setting because I wanted to be able to control my own time. My practice is focused on healing gut inflammation which can often lead to other symptoms that one would think is not gut related but is actually gut related. I am also the co-host of Nutrition Lifestyles with Kim & Johane. A podcast geared towards millennial women. Informing on nutrition, wellness and lifestyle with an entertaining flair.
I’ve never found the field of dietetics to be diverse. Even in school I was often the only black person in my classes, especially in grad school. I wasn’t always encouraged in school to be a dietitian. I was once told that I should know that working for WIC did not require me to be a Registered Dietitian. Which was all sorts of disrespectful.
Living in Atlanta has been a blessing because I feel like I live in a black Mecca so to speak LOL. Many of my clients have come to me specifically looking for a black dietitian. I’m very passionate about supporting those who are coming after me and encouraged POC to be part of my field.
