Hi, I'm Courtney and I'm so glad that you're here! I am a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist, passionate about all things health and wellness. My mission is to help you reduce stress around food, simplify nutrition, and free up mind space to live your life to the fullest.
I believe that you can do whatever you set your mind to accomplish because nothing is impossible without God. And food provides our bodies with the fuel we need to take on each day, achieve our goals, and do what all that we are called to do. I also believe that food is medicine and that it plays a functional role in influencing our health.
I am so excited that you're here! My mission is to help you learn how to take care of your body, mind, and soul through food and nutrition. Each person is individual and has different needs. Therefore we will work collaboratively to personalize your nutrition approach, set SMART goals, and achieve your health and nutrition goals.

What is a Dietitian?
A Registered Dietitian (RD) is a food and nutrition expert that has completed specific, scientific coursework, a bachelors degree, and hands-on practice with an accredited internship. RDs are credentialed after passing the RD exam once criteria are met.
Dietitians go through rigorous scientific education and training to become certified to work with people who have various health conditions like diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and more. We provide evidence-based recommendations and keep up-to-date with the latest nutrition and health research.
All dietitians are nutritionists,
but not all nutritionists are dietitians.
