My Story

Hey! My name is Stephanie!

 

I am a sports dietitian who specializes in helping high school prevent under fueling which can set them back in their performance, impact their growth, and increase their injury risk. Focusing on your nutrition choices now will help you gain muscle strength, support bone health, improve your endurance and ultimately help you reach your performance goals. My goal, as a sports dietitian, is to empower you to fuel your growth and performance while managing the challenges of a busy school and sport schedule.

 

As an elite high school athlete, I was challenged to balance sports, classes, and family life. What fell to the side was my nutrition. I found that although I was eating, I was not eating enough. By under-fueling I impacted my strength and weakened my bones leading to several preventable injuries.  When I found a balance and added in the missing nutrition piece, I saw a dramatic positive impact on my performance.

 

In college I studied dietetics at the College of Oneonta and moved on the complete my master’s in clinical nutrition at Stony Brook University. To follow my passion for sports and helping athletes prevent under fueling I became a board-certified specialist in sports dietetics (CSSD).

 

Throughout my athletic and nutrition career I have seen the dedication, drive, and commitment that both athletes and their families have for their sport. When athletes make nutrition a priority, they are able to energize their workouts, improve their recovery, and set themselves apart from their competition. I am here to help, every step of the way!

Are you ready to fuel your goals and take your performance to the next level?

Callie Sue: My fruit and vegetable loving pup! You will see her pop up on my social media or she may break into a session or two while we are working together. She is 3 years old, and full of energy. Callie is a black lab with a splash of boxer and chow. I adopted her when she was 3 months old and just 15 lb from the North Myrtle Beach Animal Shelter, her name was Sue. I named her Callie, and kept the Sue because she is a southern belle. Callie is a gem. She loves adventure - hiking, swimming, running, the beach... you name it she ready for the experience. I mean, come on look at that little face! You will definitely meet her when she pushes through the door of my office during sessions!
