Michelle Pillepich - NAMI-NYC

Michelle Pillepich

2022 will be my 2nd NYC Marathon and I am excited to run for NAMI-NYC! I have been working as a Registered Dietitian for the past 3 years seeing clients who are working towards eating disorder recovery. Working with eating disorders and collaborating with other mental health professionals has been incredibly rewarding and has made me more passionate about raising awareness for mental health. I have also seen mental health impact those who are close to me in my personal life, and I have discovered the importance of prioritizing my own mental health as well. With personal and professional inspiration, I joined the NAMI-NYC Young Professionals group this year as a way to become more involved, and I look forward to deepening my involvement through the marathon team!
