Meet Ingrid Soto, MS, RDN, CPT

CEO, English Tutor

ingrid.soto@myrdguide.com

Ingrid Soto, an entrepreneur, mentor, and CEO of MyRDguide LLC, strongly believes in every student’s capability to pass the RD/DTR exam. She is convinced that with the right support system in place, success is not only possible but inevitable. Ingrid’s dedication to assisting others stems from her own experiences of facing multiple failures in the RD exam. While at the University of Connecticut, she actively participated in the Puerto Rican/Latin American Cultural Center (PRLACC) Mentorship program, recognizing the importance of a supportive environment for personal and professional growth. Ingrid’s aspiration to extend this support to a broader audience led her to mentor and tutor thousands of students in the field of dietetics over the past six years. Her caring nature shines through the numerous relationships she has built with past and present students.

Ingrid’s famous saying is, “It is not IF you pass the exam but WHEN you pass the exam.”

Meg thoroughly enjoys getting to know her residents and aims to help them enjoy their meals and trust that it will bring them comfort. Her clients appreciate her compassionate, empathetic approach as she works individually with these residents to address a variety of needs and supports them through their journeys by empowering them to find an approach that is suitable for them. When Meg isn’t focusing on her residents, she loves to meet with her students as they light up her day and help her remember why she wanted to be a dietitian in the first place !!

Meet Saimyliz Rivera

Saimy had no guidance or support when she decided to take the RDN exam. She contacted Ingrid and Angela, who never left her alone in the process. They helped her increase her score AND confidence. She passed the exam in 2020 with a 26! Given that English is not Saimy’s first language, she thought taking the exam would be an impossible task. And now she leads the Spanish groups, allowing MyRDGuiders to learn the material in Spanish as well! She currently works as a Clinical Dietitian at the San Lucas Episcopal Medical Center in Puerto Rico. She also has a private practice that offers individualized medical nutrition therapy management.

Saimy’s famous saying: “The language barrier should not stop you from taking the exam – never give up!
