A Registered Dietitian (RD) is a food and nutrition expert who can translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. RDs use their nutrition expertise to help individuals make unique, positive lifestyle changes.
A dietitian can help you interpret information heard from your doctor, family, friends, media/social media— and teach you how to apply it to your life. RDs provide advice tailored to you!
A dietitian can be your teacher, coach, guide, accountability partner, and motivator.
Rachel received a B.S. in Dietetics from Purdue University. At Purdue, Rachel ran for the Boilermakers cross country and track & field teams. After Purdue, she completed her Dietetic Internship at the National Institutes of Health and became a Registered Dietitian in 2008. She still enjoys running and has run the three U.S. Marathon Majors. Until then, you’ll find her running with her new favorite accessory- a jogging stroller!
I pride myself on being a dietitian you can enjoy dining out with – I am not the food police! Establishing a healthy lifestyle, which includes healthy eating, is very personal. My job is to help you find nutrition solutions that work for YOU and your lifestyle.
Initial Visits are typically the longest appointment and set the stage for meeting your nutrition and wellness goals. This visit builds off of information gathered during the free consultation to get a complete picture of where you have been, where you are headed, and a plan to get you there.
Follow-Up Appointments are crucial to the success of your nutrition plan. During each follow-up appointment, the dietitian will assess your progress and help you move further toward achieving your goals.
Appointments can cover a variety of topics:
|# 30 Min Sessions||Member||Non-member|

A lifestyle assessment—exercise, sleep, stress, etc.
After understanding your goals, the RD will help you develop a plan for achieving improved nutrition and overall wellness.
