Learn more about a career as a Virtual Practitioner

You love getting your hands dirty with helping and teaching others about their nutrition and wellness, but also love the flexibility of working from home or wherever in the world you’d like! If you get a travel bug, you want to know you can pick up and go as a digital nomad. And if you’d like to show up to work in nothing but yoga pants and a concert t-shirt, even better. Figuring out tech and social media, while sometimes stressful, is generally fun for you. You love connecting over memes, .gifs, and aren’t afraid to show your face and rant about what you’re eating and why!

Here are some career paths to consider as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner:

  • 1-1 and group clients
  • Online courses/programs
  • Online shop
  • Health/wellness influencer

Many NTPs do more than one function in their personalized career as a holistic nutrition professional. But you are definitely veering more towards a virtual practitioner! Keep that in mind as you start to brainstorm your opportunities.

Learn more about a career as an In-Person Practitioner

You’re a natural social butterfly, maybe even an extrovert! You love connecting with others in real life, networking, learning, and supporting people. This in-person connection fills up your cup and makes you most effective to those you serve. Working at a practice with other practitioners in a physical location, having your own solo-practice, and optionally taking clients remotely would be a great fit for you.

Here are some career paths to consider as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner:

  • Solo practitioner – in office
  • Multi-disciplinary practice – working with another health professional (DC, MD, DO, CNP, etc.)
  • 1-on-1 and group clients
  • Corporate Wellness

Many NTPs do more than one function in their personalized career as a holistic nutrition professional. But you are definitely leaning more towards an in-person practitioner! Keep that in mind as you start to brainstorm your opportunities.

Learn more about a career as a Published Author

You are your happiest with a pen and paper in one hand and a latte in the other… (or laptop and an empty word .doc opened and some matcha), you get the idea. Writing ignites you and you’re passionate about sharing what you know for the masses in that format. Becoming published would be a dream come-true for you, and validate your expertise in your field.

Here are some career paths to consider as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner:

  • Cookbook Author

Learn more about a career in Culinary Nutrition

You are happiest in the kitchen, farmers market, and when tying on an apron. Creating delicious recipes, helping others learn how to cook and nourish their bodies brings you immense joy. You crave creativity and your friends are always hitting you up for recipes or questions on what to do with obscure vegetables like okra! Your Pinterest boards are filled with nutrient dense recipes and you daydream about your next kitchen creation often.

Here are some career paths to consider as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner:

  • Blogger
  • Recipe developer
  • Food product developer
  • Private chef
  • Meal service
  • Meal plan coach
  • Cookbook creator

Food is somehow a part of every NTP’s role, and many NTPs do more than one function in their personalized career as a holistic nutrition professional. But you’re definitely leaning more towards a role in Culinary Nutrition! Keep that in mind as you start to brainstorm your opportunities.

Learn more about a career as a Speaker or Public Figure

You live not only for the ‘lights, camera, action’, but also for the preparation and implementation it takes to produce something amazing. Sharing what you know and inspiring crowds to come together, network, and learn from you lights you up. Even if you’ve never even done it before! Speaking at conferences in person or hosting a podcast where you can share your wisdom vocally is ideal for you, while connecting 1:1 is less appealing.

Here are some career paths to consider as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner:

  • Events
  • Activist
  • Producer
  • Host – podcast/YouTube

Many NTPs do more than one function in their personalized career as a holistic nutrition professional. But you are definitely veering more towards a Speaker or Public Figure! Keep that in mind as you start to brainstorm your opportunities.
