Joanne Moscalu (Malocca) (BSc, PgCert, MSc, RD) was born and bred in Drogheda, Ireland. Jo qualified with a Bachelor of Science Degree (hons) in Human Nutrition and Dietetics from Dublin Institute of Technology/Trinity College Dublin in 2014 and worked as a hospital dietitian in Ireland for 3 years.

In 2017, Jo moved to the UK and obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Eating Disorders & Master of Science Degree in Health and Community Care with a focus on Binge Eating and Type 2 Diabetes from Leeds Beckett University. Jo went on to work in the NHS, establishing and leading a brand new dietetic service for people with type 2 diabetes in East Anglia, but was shocked at the level of shame and stigma associated with a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. 

Jo then moved fully into the realm of eating disorders, with a keen interest in binge eating and type 2 diabetes. In 2020, Jo completed the required training to become a Certified Intuitive Eating Counsellor.

Jo is committed to her profession as a Registered Dietitian and has taken the RD4Disclosure (UK) Pledge to blog with integrity. Jo holds dietetic registration in Republic of Ireland, UK & USA. In 2018, Jo was selected to undertake the highly-esteemed Diabetes UK ‘Tomorrow’s Leaders’ leadership programme and went on to hold the role of Chair of the East of England Branch of the British Dietetic Association from April 2019 – August 2020.

In late 2020, Jo relocated to the United States with her husband and is enjoying life in Boston, Massachusetts.
