I started as a pre-med major at SUNY Binghamton, but while my classmates went on to medical school, I took a different path. I was the family rebel as a ‘nature girl’ who grew up in Brooklyn in a household with 2 heavy smokers and a freezer filled with an assortment of TV dinners. Chiropractic intrigued me as the thought that I could help people just by using my hands without invasive intervention was very appealing. After graduating Suma Cum Laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic and running a family practice with my husband for 10+ years, I knew that to provide truly comprehensive care, it was time to seek further education. I earned a Master’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition and also became a Certified Nutrition Specialist, a credential that required advanced-degree qualifications, a rigorous examination, and substantial nutrition experience. I’ve attended hundreds of hours of advanced continuing education, lectured extensively on many topics, but I’ve learned the most from listening to my patients. They continue to be my best teachers. After twenty five years of practice in the same location, these patients have become a part of our family. There is no other work I can be doing that can have a more profound impact on someone’s life, including my own. I am happy to say that the majority of our practice builds from patient and physician referrals. We have a link you can review that shows many testimonials that we are quite proud of.

Nutritional Wellness Center is pleased to announce the addition of Devon Smith to our practice. Devon is the owner of Devon’s Kitchen, a culinary and nutrition-based business devoted to inspiring individuals to take control of their health by preparing and cooking whole, organic foods. Devon enjoys helping people and families find their way back into the kitchen and to the dinner table.
Devon graduated from Bucknell University and is a licensed K-12 teacher in New Jersey. After teaching English for seven years, Devon found herself navigating her own health issues and her first-born’s food allergies. Her expertise in this area will be extremely beneficial for our patients dealing with dietary restrictions, i.e. gluten free and allergy elimination plans.
Devon works with our patients doing ‘home visits’ where she provides one-on-one instruction. We work together discussing the ideal diet for our patients and she then cooks with them so that they can learn to stock the fridge with hands on prep of nourishing meals that fit their programs. She understands the value of streamlining the process and her instruction is meant to empower our patients to be able to take the reins and successfully follow their personalized programs. Bottom line, she makes eating healthier both EASY and REWARDING.
In her spare time, Devon enjoys spending time with her family, reading, cycling with her husband on their tandem, gardening, practicing yoga and…cooking!
