Nicole Parello, MS, RD, CDN

Registered Dietitian


What is your background?

I was born in Florida but grew up on the Jersey Shore. I have always been interested in nutrition and exercise, and my family and friends have supported me over the years. I received my Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Sciences- Dietetics Option at Rutgers University and completed my Master of Science in Nutrition and the dietetic internship at the College of Saint Elizabeth. I previously worked in clinical and community nutrition before joining the CHARGE team.

What are the values that drive you?

Optimism, empathy, kindness, accountability, and honesty.


What do you like about working at the charge group?

I like being part of a team of friendly, passionate individuals, while being able to do what I love everyday: helping individuals nutritionally through counseling. What more could you ask for?

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I enjoy exercising, alternating between HIIT workouts, weight lifting, kickboxing, yoga, and walking/running, along with listening to dance music, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.


What is your Favorite quote?

"Think positively, exercise daily, eat healthy, work hard, stay strong, worry less, dance more, love often, and be happy."

What is your favorite food or snack?

I really love all foods, but I would have to say my favorite is broccoli rabe. Whenever I try a new Italian restaurant, I have to get the broccoli rabe (but my Dad makes the best)!
