Barbara Trunk, RD, LDN

Registered Dietitian


What is your background?

I grew up in Abington, PA , received my BS in Nutritional Sciences from Penn State, and completed the dietetic internship at the OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria, IL. I began my RD career as a retail dietitian and am still all about the healthy grocery store finds that may be hidden gems on the shelves!

What are values that drive you?

Knowing that I am helping others keeps me motivated! My clients often comment on my positivity - I really focus on progress, not perfection :)


What do you like about working at the charge group?

I really feel like I am able to make a difference in people's lives in the 1-1 environment. My clients are amazing and to see them make progress is incredibly rewarding!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Attend fun/challenging workout classes, create new recipes and drink kombucha!


What is your Favorite quote?

"Oh kale yeah!"

What is your favorite food or snack?

Such a tough question!!! I probably do not go a single day without eating peanut butter- whether it's with a banana, mixed into yogurt, or just by itself- it's my fave!


name three of your favorite books, movies, or podcasts.

The Food Psych podcast for career inspiration, The New Girl for some laughs, and anything on The Food Network for expanding what goes on in my kitchen!
