Lori Martinez-Hassett, RD, CSR
Lori has been a registered dietitian since 1996. She joined Satellite Healthcare in 2002 and has worked in one of Satellite's larger home dialysis programs, Wellbound of Emeryville, since it opened in 2005. Her nutrition career and interest in diabetes started well before her professional career, when a beloved aunt living with T1 diabetes taught her the art of carb counting and introduced her to an insulin pump.
After graduating in dietetics from San Francisco State University, Lori was commissioned in the army and moved to Washington, D.C. where her nutrition career as an army dietitian and officer began. She worked in both a large medical center at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, then a small community hospital at West Point, New York. After completing her army commission, Lori and her family returned to California where she worked primarily with people with diabetes — at the Pediatric Diabetes Clinic at Kaiser Vallejo and in private practice in the offices of Marin Endocrine Associates.
