“Traditional dieting not working? We believe in taking a more scientific and individualized approach.”
Stephanie’s interest in health and fitness started at an early age as she grew up doing competitive gymnastics. After exploring different health-related careers, she decided on dietetics because it sounded like the ideal field – it blended science and food!
Stephanie earned her undergraduate degree from James Madison University and completed her dietetic internship at East Carolina University. She started her career in clinical nutrition before obtaining her Master’s degree in exercise science at George Mason University.
Stephanie has worked with individuals and families in various settings including hospitals and outpatient centers where she helped people discover how they can use food and exercise to prevent and manage health conditions.
Over her years of experience, Stephanie developed a passion for working with athletes of all ages and with children, adolescents and adults who struggle to manage their weight and adopt healthy eating behaviors.
Stephanie is a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics and serves as Adjunct Faculty at American University in the School of Education, Teaching and Health. She is an expert in sports nutrition for athletes at all ages and levels, and specializes in optimizing body composition in athletic and non-athletic populations.
“The universal approach for fat loss should be calories based on metabolism and nutrient needs based on body composition. That’s what makes it individualized.”
