Who is The Pineapple Expressionist?

Samantha M. Coogan, MS, RDN, CSSD, HCP, FAND

I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), and Holistic Cannabis Practitioner (HCP), who loves all things nutrition, sports and cannabis, and a true believer that it can improve your life! 

My goal is to debunk those silly myths and stigmas related to cannabis while promoting wellness. I am passionate about properly educating others about the therapeutic benefits, uses, safety and, most importantly, the science behind cannabis therapy for wellness, in conjunction with a healthful and nutritious lifestyle. 

I have over six years of experience working with various patient populations, four of which have been working directly with professional and collegiate athletes (and even a few celebrities along the way!). As a sports dietitian, I’ve been a Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) since 2018, and hold a Master of Science degree in Exercise Physiology. I also completed my cannabis training and certification through the Holistic Cannabis Academy and the Healer Certified Training Program with Dr. Dustin Sulak in 2021.

I’m a Fellow of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (FAND). As a leader in my field, I’ve served as President for the Nevada Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and was featured during the FNCE 2019 Opening Session in Philadelphia, PA.

But most importantly, I love impacting people in meaningful and powerful ways! Listen to my journey here.
