It’s taken me a while to not connect my worth to my size.
But at long last, I grew tired of dieting. As someone who has struggled with disordered eating, learning to become a mindful eater has sometimes been a rocky journey.
These days, mindful eating has made my life far richer and more enjoyable. I’d love for you to relish in this same peace with food and eating. Inner peace enhances every aspect of your life and enables you to be in flow with life’s Universal Energy.
Are you ready to stop dieting?
As a dietitian, people tend to make interesting and sometimes inaccurate assumptions about me and my work: I’m the food police. I don’t allow myself to enjoy eating fun foods. We should all be on a specific diet. Or heartbreakingly, I’ll be judging you.
Not even close!
My clients tell me that they feel comfortable and understood, right from the beginning.
And the truth is: there are a lot of “right “ ways to eat well, but most of us could use a little bit of help. I love when people finally feel good in their body so they can live the life they are born to live. Being in service brings inner peace.
While most of us would love a quick fix, lasting change is in the little habits that we build over time, with practice and support. I like to say that baby steps over time yield big results, and my clients agree.
As a lifelong learner, my nutrition training didn’t end with my nutrition degree and internship. I will forever be seeking new skills and strategies to be able to better empower my clients. You deserve it. This means that you get the value of years of experience, trial and error distilled into your personalized plan to success.
And since most of us do like a jump start, we have plans that start with a full-body restorative program, too.
My team and I cannot wait to connect with you. Through our work together, you’ll be happier and healthier than you’ve ever been before.
Our Core Values
We value all people having the opportunity to awaken their full potential.
Your health is your greatest wealth.
Nothing is more important than that you feel your best.

Just for fun
- I’ve run in eight marathons, but these days I prefer hiking.
- I am a mother to two vivacious children, one wild puppy and a grandmother to one beautiful granddaughter.
- My next dream vacation is to go truffle hunting in Italy, with my dog Reishi who is a Lagotto puppy.
- I love to garden, especially for the opportunity to grow specialty greens that aren’t available at the grocery store. Have you ever tried bok choy or purple collards?

Erica Harper, MS RD
It might have been the fresh South Jersey air, the grocery shopping with her mom and the nightly food group game over the dinner plate but one thing was for sure, a future career was forming. As Erica Harper’s focus on healthy eating grew, she began to observe that not everyone was like her. She observed that those who made unhealthy choices consistently over time were experiencing health issues. As she continued to consider her future career, she knew that she loved the sciences and also had a desire to teach. With this combination of interests, Erica soon found her way to a career as a Dietitian.
Early into starting her career Erica could not have predicted that her personal life and profession would intersect in a life-changing way. After having worked at Shore Medical Center and the Shore Cancer Center for a year and a half Erica found herself back at the cancer center for a different reason. In 2017, Erica’s dad was diagnosed with head and neck cancer. As part of the cancer diagnosis, he developed nutrition problems that arose from his chemotherapy and radiation cancer treatments. As a Registered Dietitian with a Masters in Human Nutrition, she was able to be her dad’s nutritional advocate.
Although Erica’s dad has since passed away, she feels that this very personal experience helped her grow and become the kind of Dietitian that we all want. A professional who is knowledgeable as well as caring and compassionate. A Dietitian who truly understands the power of coupling nutritional counseling with empathy.
As a dietitian at Vitality Nutrition and Wellness Center, Erica enjoys working with pregnant women, lactating mothers and children. Each of these populations offers a window of opportunity to leverage optimal nutrition to create lasting wellness.
When Erica is not counseling at Vitality Nutrition and Wellness Center, she is working as a clinical dietitian at Acuity Specialty Hospital and teaching Barre classes. She enjoys being in nature and going to the beach, camping, or biking around the town. Erica and her husband Clayton live in Ocean City, NJ and welcomed their son this year.
Kacy Romeo DiSantillo, MS Certified Nutrition Specialist
Kacy has her master’s degree in Nutrition and Integrative Health from Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH), a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Rowan University, and a health coaching certification through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). She has always had a passion for helping people and had always planned to become a clinical psychiatrist. Towards the end of her schooling at Rowan University, she was experiencing some health issues of her own. She was getting debilitating migraines, and after being prescribed medication after medication she was not getting any relief. She decided to take her health into her own hands. This included reading books and watching seminars on what could be causing her migraines. She then found the nutrition community and hasn’t looked back since.
After discovering the amazing power of nutrition, she enrolled in IIN and completed the yearlong health coaching program where she learned not only about nutrition but how to address health from a holistic standpoint. Upon completion of her health coaching certification, she enrolled in her master’s degree program at MUIH where she learned about nutrition, supplementation, healthy cooking, nutritional biochemistry, digestive health, and more.
Through her schooling she learned about the concept of bio-individuality – the idea that no two people are the same. Kacy treats each and every client as the biologically individual person that they are. What works for one person might not work for another. What works for one person at one time in their life might not also work for them 10 years later. She takes her time and gets to know each and every one of her clients and their goals, and then develops a plan to help them be their best self.
She has a passion for helping clients piece together the puzzle of what might be going on inside their body. Digestive health is an area that many clients struggle with. Through the use of functional lab testing and protocols, Kacy has been able to help many clients dealing with issues from food sensitivities, diverticulosis, reflux, and more.
Now, as a Nutritionist, Kacy has been able to apply her own unique approach to counseling combining her positivity, personal experiences and professional knowledge to guide Vitality Nutrition and Wellness Center’s clients as they embark on their journey to achieve health in mind and body.
When Kacy is not with her Vitality Nutrition & Wellness Center clients, she is taking Barre classes, getting creative in the kitchen, and spending time with her husband Anthony and their Yorkie, Bear.
