Biography

Angie Hasemann Bayliss is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Specialist in Pediatric Nutrition who has spent the past decade teaching kids to cheer for fruits and vegetables and eat them too. She worked with children of all ages, from toddlers to teenagers, at UVA’s Children’s Fitness Clinic and is well-known for translating the complicated science of nutrition into easy-to-use and understandable information.

With her passion for helping families dealing with the most severe cases of obesity and co-morbidities, Angie has spent much of her career working on the front lines of pediatric obesity treatment.  After counseling over 3,000 patients and their families in the Children’s Fitness Clinic, she’s been forced to master the art of grabbing and maintaining the attention of toddlers and their grandparents to allow for effective nutrition education and to promote positive behavior change. She’s provided training for community members; medical, nursing, exercise physiology, and dietetics students; and physicians throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Angie holds three Bachelors’ Degrees, in Nutrition, Exercise Science, and Dietetics, from Kansas State University, and she earned her Masters of Science Degree in Health Communication from Boston University. She currently supports UVA’s outpatient and pediatric Registered Dietitian teams in her role as Co-Clinical Nutrition Manager, as well as serving as Program Director of the University of Virginia Health System Dietetic Internship program. She’s a true foodie at heart – enjoying cooking, trying out new restaurants, and doing a food tour in any new city she visits.
