Hi, I'm Brittany
I developed a passion for nutrition and lifestyle later in life, although I've had personal experiences that should have started it all! I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in the early 90s when treatment was focused on medication first, food second. Even when I received an insulin pump in the early 2000s and my food options were liberated, food was just a means to blood sugar management. It wasn't until I rediscovered my love for fitness and activity in my late 20s that I started to think about food as a tool for health. At the same time, I was working with the Emory Preventive Medicine Program and their Lifestyle Clinic which exposed me to the power of nutrition to heal, prevent, and treat chronic diseases. After that, I was hooked. I returned to school to study nutrition and completed my studies through Kansas State University. I then joined Emory University Hospital for clinical training in Medical Nutrition Therapy. Currently, when I am not working with clients, you can find me at at Emory University's Student Health Clinic. I love to eat out and enjoy finding the best plant-based options at ATL restaurants. If you see me out, please say hello!
I specialize in weight loss, weight gain or maintenance, muscle gain, fueling for endurance sports, Type 1 Diabetes, lifestyle medicine, meal planning and preparation techniques, chronic disease (heart disease, high blood pressure, etc.), plant-based nutrition, vegan or vegetarian diets, wellness coaching, and standard omnivore eating plans.
Hi, I'm Nicole
Like many of you, I grew up in the time when food moved from being a source of nourishment to a source of fear and confusion (“eggs are bad! fat is the enemy! Try a diet of nothing but cabbage soup to achieve the body you deserve!”). I watched my family struggle with their weight and later with the chronic diseases that arise due to our standard American diet, but it never occurred to me that my life could be different. then in my late 20s, I found myself working in finance, tired, out of shape, and miserable. I finally decided that something had to change. I began moving more, sleeping more, and eating more whole foods, and these changes allowed me to feel like a better version of myself that I never realized was there. and while researching how to change my own life, I discovered a passion for biology and nutrition that I realized could be used to help others. I began with a master’s degree in nutrition from Hunter College-CUNY and completed a dietetic internship with Texas A&M. In addition to seeing clients, I work in the neuroscience units at Emory University Hospital. To stay sane I run, practice yoga, and find new hiking trails to explore with my rascal pup, Lucille Bluth.
I specialize in weight management (gain, loss or maintenance), GI disorders (including elimination diets), neurological conditions, lifestyle changes, meal planning and preparation techniques, plant-based nutrition, vegan or vegetarian diets, standard omnivore diets, and so much more.
