Our Integrated Fertility and Wellness Team

Nutritionist

Jill Hickey, RDN

Jill Hickey has been providing nutrition guidance to children and adults for over 17 years, and currently supports patients at Illume Fertility with her broad experience and unique perspective.

“I grew up in a health-conscious family,” Jill says. “My dad is a former athlete, coach and gym teacher who valued eating for health and performance. My mom is a preschool teacher and always had home-cooked, balanced meals for us. I think this upbringing, as well as my personal experiences, (discovering the impact of good nutrition as an athlete, and in facing personal and family health challenges), is what sparked my interest in nutrition.”

“Balanced eating and regular exercise can have a positive impact on a person at any point in their fertility journey, which is why I’m so passionate about what I do. Small changes can make a big difference.”

Jill enjoys combining her past experience - in both clinical and community nutrition - to help patients in both our fertility and PCOS programs.
