Registered Dietitian

Welcome to with a Side of Sneakers! I’m a sports dietitian specializing in food sensitivities {and a business implementation strategist for my fellow nutrition professionals}.

Health doesn’t have to be complicated or stressful. I’m here to clear things up while keeping things all kind of realistic.
