About Elzinga

Rachel Elzinga is a registered dietitian who works as an outpatient nutrition counselor at St. Charles Health System in Bend and Redmond. She earned her bachelor’s degree in nutrition and dietetics in 2016 and specializes in working with individuals who are preparing for bariatric surgery, those that need support on their weight loss journey and individuals who suffer from eating disorders. Rachel uses a patient-centered approach where she and the patient work together to create a plan that considers the patients’ strengths and weaknesses and meets them where they are in their journey. She believes that support is crucial when trying to make nutrition-based changes and she loves to offer her own brand of cheerleading to each patient she meets.

When she’s not counseling people on nutrition, she enjoys gardening, kayaking, reading, hiking, and cycling. She recently moved from Corvallis to Central Oregon and is loving all the sunshine!
