Hennis Tung, MS, RD

Hennis is a New York City-based Registered Dietitian (RD). She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Food Science and Nutrition from the Ohio State University, before completing her Dietetic Internship and Master’s in Clinical Nutrition from NYU. 
She started her career as a clinical dietitian in NYU Langone Medical Center followed by Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital. She has extensive experience working with both adults and children on a wide range of medical conditions, including gastrointestinal disorders, diabetes, food allergy/ intolerance and weight management. 
Hennis’s deep love for food stems from her childhood and also having travelled to various places in Asia, Europe and the United States. Her favorite childhood memories are having home-cooked family dinners every night, and taking the first bite of her mom’s freshly baked bread. She is an adventurous eater who enjoys trying out new cuisines and flavors, and is fascinated by culinary traditions and customs. She recently fell in love (unexpectedly) with canned sardines in Portugal.
