Meet The Pineapple Expressionist
Samantha Coogan, MS, RDN, CSSD, FAND
Sam is a Master’s level non-diet registered dietitian nutritionist supporting women in their journeys toward body kindness + mental wellness through intuitive eating, weight inclusivity, and life-enhancing movement.
With over 8 years of experience in nutrition and dietetics working with various populations including athletes of all skill levels and those with underlying medical conditions, Sam is a leader in the field of nutrition and dietetics as a Fellow of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (FAND).
Pair that with an added background in exercise physiology, she’s best equipped to help you get to the root of your happiness through mindful nutrition and movement, and other well-being activities that put your mind and body at ease.
Sam is a mixed bag of tricks. When she’s not listening to Rammstein or Slipknot (or Elvis – told ya!), she’s practicing yoga, watching (or should we say, drooling over) The Last Kingdom, playing Crash Bandicoot, reading up on Norse mythology, or justifying price per square foot watching her favorite high-end real estate agent, Josh Flagg, negotiate a mid-century modern deal on Million Dollar Listing L.A.
Sam’s bucket list includes a Viking tour around the Scandanavian regions, learning to speak Swedish, Danish, and Finnish, and teaching herself to play the piano. To be clear, Sam is not Scandanavian, although her Odin’s raven tattoo would tell you otherwise 😉 she just wants to be a Viking!
If I Can Dream...
I’m ALL about having fun!
Learn how to break free from diet culture with me, and stop taking life so seriously.
Although I’m not a doctor, I do know that laughter is the best medicine!
I’m a true believer that it can improve your mental health and life.
But most importantly, as The Pineapple Expressionist, I love impacting people in meaningful and powerful ways!
This is my promise to YOU that there will never be a dull moment as we navigate this world of misinformation and false conformity together!
Be prepared for some humor to be packed in with every punch to those societal norms! Let’s do this thing.
Thanks for being here, and never say diet !!
