Hi! I'm Ilene

Hi, I’m Ilene!

I love being a dietitian and I love helping dietitians-to-be achieve their goals and become fully registered dietitian nutritionists. 

When I started tutoring, I wasn’t tutoring dietitians. I began my journey 6 years ago tutoring students in Spanish. 

It wasn’t hard to see how all the skills I learned tutoring school students could be used to benefit dietetic students who were struggling to pass study for their registration exams.

I founded RefreshExamS® in 2015. 

Over my years of tutoring I noticed that many of my students made the same mistakes. They weren’t reading the questions properly, weren’t identifying critical words in the questions and couldn’t connect the dots to find the correct answers.

Using what I learned and what I saw successful students do, I created The KEY Strategy® which combines methodical critical thinking, knowledge and application to successfully tackle multiple-choice exam questions.

I hold a Master of Science degree in Clinical Nutrition from New York University and completed my dietetic internship at the Bronx Veterans Affairs Medical Center, which accepts 7 students annually. My career has spanned from clinical inpatient and outpatient to diabetes centers, dialysis centers, bariatric centers and corporate wellness. In my Santa Monica based private practice, PranaSpirit Nutrition & Wellness, LLC, specializes in integrative and functional medical nutrition therapy and therapeutic yoga.

Over the years, I’ve served as a preceptor at several hospitals and was rated as an outstanding preceptor by interns at Mount Sinai Hospital’s DI program.

Be Part of the Passing Percentage!®

As dietitians, we know how hard it is to prepare for the exam. Now we’re on a mission to empower students to be fully engaged, supported and successful in their careers as dietitians.

At RefreshExamS®, we’ve created study and support programs that have helped hundreds of student dietitians confidently sit for and successfully pass the exam.

Our students who are taking the exam for the first time have a 78% pass rate. Our pass rates are 1.5% higher than national rates.

Compare that to 34% national pass rates, and only 21% pass rate if you’ve taken the test more than four times*!

Hi, I'm Melissa.

I’m based out of San Antonio and am an Mexican-American registered dietitian nutritionist from Laredo, Texas. I hold both a bachelor’s and Master’s of science in nutrition from the University of the Incarnate Word, also completing my dietetic internship there.

I also assisted in the development of Spanish curriculums in the Worksite Wellness Program. With my extensive Spanish program development and education background, I’m thrilled to spearhead RefreshExamS™’ Spanish RD exam review classes. Melissa está muy emocionada por ser parte del equipo de RefreshExamS™ y ayudar a aquellos estudiantes cuya primera lengua es el español. La primera lengua de Melissa es español y sabe que para los de habla hispana/latina puede ser un reto en el RD exam, pero no imposible

Hi, I'm Linsey.

Hi, I'm Maria.

Clinical dietetics tutor / Bilingual tutor

Originally from Mexico, I’m a bilingual, San Antonio, Texas-based registered dietitian nutritionist. I hold two Masters degrees; a Master in Healthcare Administration from the University of the Incarnate Word and a Master of Science from the University of North Florida.

I offer tutoring in Spanish for Spanish-speaking nutritionists who are preparing for the RD exam. My native language is Spanish as my parents are from Mexico and I grew up in Mexico. Studying for the exam, I realized the barriers students face when English is not their native language. Now I want to help students understand and facilitate the study process leading them to a passing score.

I’m pursuing the Diabetes Care and Education Specialist (CDCES) credential with a mission for helping children with diabetes. I aim to use my expertise to help these children overcome obstacles and empower them to make healthy lifestyle changes to prevent complications, but most importantly, to live their lives to the fullest in optimal health.

Maria está excitada para ser parte del equipo de RefreshExamS™ ofreciendo tutoría en español para nutriólogas de habla hispana que se preparan para el examen de RD. Su lengua natal es el español debido a que sus padres son mexicanos y ella creció en México. Estudiando para el examen se dio cuenta de las barreras que enfrentan los estudiantes cuando el inglés no es su idioma nativo. Maria quiere ayudar a los estudiantes a entender y a facilitarles el proceso de estudio llevándolos a una puntuación de aprobación.

Nutrition Support Specialist
I have been a dietitian for over ten years, starting my career as a Nutritionist with the City of Dallas WIC Program. After working for WIC for six years and becoming a Clinic Supervisor, I transitioned to a clinical role as the lead dietitian in the neuro ICU at a large metropolitan hospital in Dallas. While working at the hospital, I obtained my CNSC credential and recertified this year. After four years in the clinical space, I embarked on a new career journey in home infusion. First as a Sales Account Executive, and now as the Director of Clinical Nutrition at a local home infusion provider. I am passionate about giving back to my local dietetic community and have served on the board of the Dallas Dietetic Alliance, a local independent dietetic professional organization for the past nine years. I love to stay active in my spare time, frequently attending fitness and yoga classes or riding my bike around the local lake. I love to relax in the evenings with my England-born husband and our two dogs. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends at local chill spots around town.

Hi, I'm Jordan.

Hi, I'm Neesha.

Neesha Ramchandani, PhD, PNP, CDCES
CDCES Exam Prep Course Instructor
I am a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in Diabetes and on the faculty at Yale School of Nursing. I also do telehealth diabetes care with a pediatric endocrinologist who is based in NYC. I received an AB in Chemistry with a minor in Psychology from Dartmouth College and a Masters of Science in Nursing from Yale. I also have a Masters in Medical Sciences from Boston University. In September 2019 I completed my PhD from NYU Meyers College of Nursing, where my dissertation was on challenges to diabetes self-management in emerging adults with type 1 diabetes. Clinically, I believe in empowering patients to do their best with their diabetes self-management. I am very interested in using technology to improve both diabetes care and access to care. I have published many papers on diabetes technology, including the first paper in the literature on insulin pumps from the time of diagnosis of type 1 diabetes without any additional agent and the first paper on why people do not use CGM. I also spent 4 years involved in closed loop/artificial pancreas research. I have presented my work around the world, including in the United States, many countries in Europe, Turkey, South Africa, and Israel.

The numbers show we’re passionate about helping our students achieve their dream of being an Registered Dietitian
