I AM A MAN OF FAITH. HUSBAND TO JENNA MALYN. FATHER TO LIAM JOSEPH AND OLIVIA ANN. REGISTERED DIETITIAN. EDUCATOR. I BELIEVE THAT HARD WORK PAYS OFF, ENTHUSIASM IS CRITICAL TO ANY SUCCESS, AND THINKING OF OTHERS SHOULD ALWAYS COME BEFORE THINKING OF YOURSELF. MY GOAL IS TO ADVANCE THE RD CREDENTIAL BY EMPOWERING THOSE THAT WIELD IT. I HAVE FIVE CORE VALUES THAT I STRIVE TO LIVE OUT EVERY SINGLE DAY: DISCIPLINE. RESPECT. HUMILITY. FAITH. FOOD.

Core Values

DISCIPLINE

Wherever you are, be all there. "No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it." 

-Hebrews 12:11

RESPECT

For yourself, for others, for authority and for viewpoints that are different than your own.

HUMILITY

Not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.

FAITH

"Faith is the assurance of what we hope for and the certainty of what we do not see."

-Hebrews 11:1

FOOD

"The secret of a good diet is to cook and the secret of cooking is to care about the food you're making, ingredients you're using and mostly about the people you are cooking for."

-Peter Sagal

04 Testimonials

Presenter, collaborator, educator & more – Aaron Schwartz, MBA, MS, RD, LD is the real deal. A recognized educator with practical clinical experience, Aaron illuminates non-traditional topics with an engaging style for all audiences, spanning the academic classroom to the conference stage. As a servant leader, I have witnessed Aaron’s work ethic, follow-through, and adaptability to the needs of diverse teams. I personally encourage you to include Aaron on your next project – you won’t’ be disappointed!

Kevin Sauer, PhD, RDN, LD, FAND | 2021-2022 AND President

Aaron is as professional and capable as they come. He is genuine, hard-working, and very personable. Aaron continuously shows his passion for the dietetics community and would be the first person I would go to if I needed anything at all.

Dane Schweinzger | Student and Intern

I first heard Aaron speak at the Nutrition and Dietetic Educators and Preceptors (NDEP) Central Region Area, Cleveland, OH on the topic of "Negotiating the Importance of Negotiations." When listening to him present, I felt I had a responsibility to share this knowledge with my senior dietetics students who were soon heading out into the real world as future dietitians. I invited Aaron to visit the University of Georgia to deliver a lecture to my MNT-I class about how to handle salary and other important negotiations in our profession. Aaron was an engaging and informative speaker, and he left a lasting impact on the students that they will take with them to the next phase of their careers.

Emma M. Laing, PhD, RDN, LD | Clinical Associate Professor

Whatever it is you're looking for from reading this testimonial, know that Aaron is the solution. I've seen firsthand that he has the rare blend of empathy, kind-heartedness, and intelligence to be competent in any role he sets his mind to. Whether it was guidance for my future career, a nuanced question about an assignment, or simply a shoulder to lean on during a rough patch in my relationship - Aaron, or "Mr. Schwartz", was always there for me as a professor, mentor, and a friend."
