Meet April Crowley

Chef and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
Healthy Chef in Pennsylvania

Hi there! I am a health supportive chef & Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. I grew up in New Jersey with five siblings and a mother who never failed to get a healthy, delicious, home-cooked meal on the table every night. I consider all the years I spent assisting my mom in the kitchen to be the catalyst for my lifelong passion for cooking. And the Beatles. My mom and I love the Beatles.

In 2009, I completed the chef’s training program at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health & Culinary Arts, followed by a Bachelors degree in Nutritional Sciences from Rutgers University. Since culinary school, I have been very fortunate to have cooked for a diverse range of clients in New York and Chicago. I am very happy to have recently relocated my business to Lehigh Valley, PA and I’m really excited for the new opportunities on the horizon.

In addition to cooking, I have a strong passion for nutrition and wellness. As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I’m able to coach individual clients towards meeting their health goals and provide nutrition education in group settings throughout my community. When I’m not cooking, I love practicing yoga, hiking and zoning out to a great playlist. Definitely some Beatles on there along with a heavy dose of Tom Petty. I live in Allentown with my husband and two boys, Teddy and Leo.
