Juhina Farooki, MPH, RD, LD

    Personal Background: I was born on June 21, 1990. I have been married for 10 years and I have 3 children. I have 1 girl and 2 boys; ages 8, 7, and 2. I love spending time with my family and friends. I love to travel, I love food from different cultures, I love to watch T.V (Netflix, Hulu, and Movies), and I love working out (CrossFit and Running). I have a drive to always try new things. I have a passion to have my own business. I do not give up once I start to work towards a goal. When I am unsuccessful completing a task, I find alternative ways to be successful and achieve my goals. I am very organized and I work well with others. I appreciate teamwork and helping my peers, along with making new friends.

    Professional Background: My love for nutrition started in sophomore year of high school, I was inspired by my Health teacher who was also a Registered Dietitian. I got my B.S in Nutrition from University of Houston, Masters in Public Health from George Washington University, and I completed my Dietetic Internship through University of Houston. I interned with the following organizations; WIC, Houston Food Bank, Texas Children’s Hospital, North Cypress Medical Center, Memorial Hermann Hospital and Katy ISD. I am currently working as a full time Clinical Dietitian at Memorial Hermann Hospital. I am looking forward to joining the Nutrition in Motion team and I am excited to start my own Private Practice so I can work with variety of individuals and incorporate my Nutrition and Public Health background and passion in my practice.
