In 30 years, NMS has contracted with hundreds of facilities and has worked with some of them for over 20 years! Yet, even with the extensive reach, the owner Elissa manages to put her personal touch in every facility. She believes that investing in the partnership between Dietitian & facility is key to maintaining successful and rewarding relationships.
It is our promise to personalize your experience and be readily available with answers, intelligence, and compassion.
Subacute dietetics is a profession of the heart. NMS is committed to applying our combined knowledge and passion for the long-term care community to each facility, their staff, and the health & well-being of each unique patient.
Elissa Olson, MBA, RDN
Having had an accomplished history as the Clinical Nutrition Director at a major acute hospital in the Bay Area, Elissa relocated to Southern California in the late 80’s.
At that time, through wonderful connections, she began consulting in Long-Term Care facilities and completely fell in love with the nursing home setting.
Elissa finds that the elderly, the infirm and the demented are overwhelmingly inspirational and provide her, and many others, the opportunity to wholeheartedly care for the people we may someday become. With the implementation of OBRA and the challenges it has offered, Elissa has grown Nutrition Menu Solutions and has become known as a great resource.
Audrey began her career in dietetics working in schools & hospitals. She managed the foodservice of a 350-bed hospital for 9 years before making a change to specialized foodservice sales.
For the next 30 years, she worked for distributors, brokers, and manufacturers selling products specifically developed for the school and healthcare markets.
During her employment at Menu Magic®, she received the President’s Award and was a member of the company’s speaker’s bureau, frequently lecturing on the nutritional components of wound care, puree diets & the proper use of nutritional supplements. She was an active member of the American Dietetic Association and the California Dietetic Association until her retirement in 2010. She now works as a consultant and advisor for NMS.
