Why us

About us

We provide dietitians with opportunities to advance their practice and elevate the profession.

We believe registered dietitians are essential members of the healthcare community that contribute significantly to the health and well-being of the people they serve.

Our history

Launched in 2005

Dietitians On Demand was launched in 2005 when Alicia Davis, RD, a registered dietitian, recognized that a temporary nutrition consulting service was needed to provide staffing support for dietitians. Initially focusing on the local area, Alicia and her husband, Ryan Davis, formed a staffing company operated out of the spare bedroom of their Richmond, Va. townhouse. Ryan and Alicia still run the company today.

Services expanded beyond Virginia in 2007

In 2007, Dietitians On Demand placed its first dietitian on an assignment outside of Virginia. This led to more regional consultant dietitians working for the company.

Nationwide presence established in 2013

Regional success in Maryland, DC and Virginia eventually led to nationwide recognition. It was an exciting year as Dietitians On Demand began recruiting throughout the eastern part of the US and working our way west.

Recognized by Inc. 5000 in 2014

Dietitians On Demand first was named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. in 2014. The company continued to grow at a rapid pace and was again recognized by Inc. 5000 for exceptional growth in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Began hiring all dietitians as W-2 employees in 2015

To enhance benefits for both our client sites and our consultant dietitians, we recognized that dietitians working in medical settings are not independent contractors. Instead, every dietitian we’ve hired since 2015 has been a W-2 employee. 

Began offering CPEUs to dietitians in 2018

Staying true to the mission to elevate dietitians, Dietitians On Demand launched a continuing education program unlike any other. With practical on-demand trainings, bundled toolkits, webinars, case studies and free infographics, tools from the library empower dietitians and their peers.

Launched virtual consultations in 2022

Dietitians On Demand launched a new branch of the company focused on connecting the general public with our amazing registered dietitians for 1:1 virtual consultations. With this program, Dietitians On Demand is now a one-stop shop for anyone who needs a dietitian. And the best part? They’re on demand!


With 500+ dietitians working more than 200,000 hours annually and receiving an approval rate of 97%, Dietitians On Demand is among the top employers of dietitians in the U.S. We love our dietitians, and so do our clients. Explore our job board today!
