Registered DietitianCarrie Taylor, RDN, LDN

As the Lead Registered Dietitian Nutritionist for family-owned Big Y Foods for the past twelve years, Carrie has had the awesome opportunity to watch the footprint of Big Y’s Living Well Eating Smart program grow. Consistently aiming to inspire others to live the life they deserve by making sound, no nonsense meal decisions, her love for nutrition stems from her love of food. For that reason, Carrie's goal is to empower others by demystifying nutrition fads and negative food relationships with fun, honest, stress-free education.

A graduate of Virginia Tech, Carrie now calls Western Massachusetts, and its mountains, home where she enjoys all it has to offer with her son and dog in tow.
