Get to know Emily:
What experience as an RD has been life-changing?
- One of the most impactful experiences I’ve had so far, has been learning about intuitive eating and the health at every size movement. In school, I was taught counting calories and meal plans. It was very diet focused. It has been exciting to evolve beyond that and learn how to help clients take care of themselves without focusing on size and weight as the end all be all.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What is the best nutrition advice you can give anybody?
- You do not have to eat “perfectly” to take care of yourself. It’s about your choices as a whole in general. At the end of the day, you know your body best and what it needs.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Specialties include: Eating Disorders, Emotional Eating, Mental Health Nutrition, Gastrointestinal Health/Disorders, Heart and Cardiovascular Health, Kidney Health, and Diabetes.
