Why us

About us

Since 2005, we’ve provided 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


Dietitians On Demand is born in Richmond, VA! Alicia Davis, RD, a registered dietitian, recognized that a temporary nutrition consulting service was needed to provide staffing support for dietitians. From day one, Dietitians On Demand valued the work dietitians do and paid them competitively. Hourly rates consistently match (or exceed) the 75th percentile for the assignment’s location. Alicia and her husband, Ryan, still run the company today.


The company came from a humble beginning, with Founder Alicia Davis, RD, working out of the spare bedroom of her family’s townhouse. This year, she expanded services to also hire dietitians in Maryland and D.C. 


With the support of Alicia’s husband, Ryan, Dietitians On Demand expanded again to offer dietitian staffing services nationwide. Always at the forefront of technology, the company conducts screening and onboarding virtually. The secret sauce to hiring amazing dietitians virtually? A dialed-in screening process customized by a dietitian, for dietitians. 


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, 2018 and 2023.


After honing their hiring practices, Dietitians On Demand again elevated the field of consultant dietetics by converting all their 1099 workers to W2 employees, and no longer hires 1099 for clinical roles. This switch is a significant tax benefit for employee dietitians, and an added insurance measure for clients. 


The company’s next move to elevate dietitians came in the form of continuing education. Free CPEU webinars were offered for employees, and because of their popularity, the company began developing practical CPEU products for ALL dietitians. As of today, most of these practice resources are free.


Nobody puts the dietitian in the corner! At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dietitians On Demand highlighted under-recognized registered dietitians with a $38K Student Loan Payoff Contest. Winners were selected based on submitted stories highlighting their contributions during the pandemic. Chris Harrison was also recruited to give some extra love to RDs during the pandemic.

Contract work got a little less intimidating. Dietitians On Demand began offering a full benefits package for any employee working 30 or more hours per week. Yes, this includes full medical, dental, vision, 401(k) with matching and paid sick leave.


Diversity, inclusion and a sense of belonging for all are important values at Dietitians On Demand. This year the company expanded its library of patient-friendly resources to include infographics in Spanish.


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!
