About

Rhaizza Velasquez-Garcia, RD, LD

 

I am a bilingual in English and Spanish Registered Dietitian. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Texas at Austin, and I completed my Dietetic Internship through Utah State University. Recently, I received my certificate of training in adult weight management. 

I specialize in weight management, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. I currently provide virtual nutrition consultation. 

I previously worked for Meals on Wheels San Antonio (MOWSA), where I was the only Registered Dietitian in charge of nutrition consultation and nutrition education for over 3000 seniors. 

 

During my internship, I completed my clinical rotation at Hill Country Memorial Hospital in Fredericksburg, Texas. There, I gained experience working with patients suffering from obesity and chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular, and renal disease. I also had the opportunity to complete my community rotation at both WIC and MOWSA.

Additionally, I am a nutrition analysis expert. While working for MOWSA I was in charge of menu development, review, and nutrition analysis for a wide variety of diets (low sodium, diabetic, gluten-free, renal). I have experience analyzing menus from adult daycares, assisted living, and restaurants.
