Emily is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian since 2003, completing her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics and her Dietetic Internship at Saint Louis University.

She also holds membership to the Sports Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutrition Practice Group, and the Collegiate and Professional Sports Dietitians Association.
Outside of work Emily can be found practicing what she preaches, enjoying a run. She recently completed the GO! St. Louis half marathon and Marine Corp Marathon. She grew up as a competitive dancer and wishes she had the knowledge of train to eat, just as you train to compete then. Emily believes that all foods fit in a healthy and active lifestyle. She strives to educate all athletes to fuel for their performance. She also works with eating disorders/disordered eating, weight management and corporate wellness consultation. It is her personal goal to eradicate negative body image one person at a time!
As a dietitian looking to start a career in private practice, consultation or sports nutrition the key is learning how to market yourself and create your “brand”. Build your contacts and network in all field areas not just within dietetics.
