i'm sam, a child of God, wife, mother, and integrative registered dietitian nutritionist
with a passion for food in their most basic, pure form and all things health.
while studying to become a physical therapist, i electively took a nutrition course during my undergraduate degree. it was during this time that I unveiled my passion -- applying exercise prescription and integrative and functional nutrition to promote overall health.
soon after graduating with a bachelors of science in kinesiology, i enrolled in graduate school to study nutrition
and to become a registered dietitian nutritionist.
- flash forward 5 years -
i completed a thesis research study at the zablocki (milwaukee, wisconsin) VA medical center, graduated with my masters of science degree in food and nutritional science, got married, completed a dietetic internship, passed the registration examination, got my first job, and welcomed our first child (arley joy) into the world.
as my exposure as a clinical dietitian grew, i quickly learned that my true passions stemmed from integrative and functional medicine and the unique application within the nutrition realm.
i found myself left with an unwavering desire to create a platform in which i could provide nutrition prescription with an integrative and functional focus as well as exercise prescription to my clients.
additionally, i wanted to create an avenue where both my husband and i could provide the best nutrition and chiropractic care in our hometown of elkhorn, wisconsin -- all under one roof.
i believe nutrition should be simple, black and white, cut and dry. no special diets, meal replacements, counting, measuring, weighing, or regretful indulgences.
i believe that together with regular checks for subluxation, massage therapy, functional movement (exercise), individualized nutrition, and the overall 'move-well, eat-well, think-well' mentality.... optimal health is achievable!
i have a passion for providing individualized nutrition prescription with a focus on integrative and functional nutrition.
my goal as a practitioner is to identify the root cause of nutrition-related problems for my clients and provide them with interventions unique to them to help meet their health and wellness goals.
are you a good fit for the simply nourished clinic's services?
if you consider yourself in a 'preparation' or 'action' stage of change, then let's work together!
if you are not quite there yet and consider yourself more in a 'pre-contemplation' or 'contemplation' stage of change,
then i'd be happy to refer you to a practitioner that would best fit your needs.
