Hi! My name is Mikaela, I’m a board certified and licensed Registered Dietitian. My mission is to help guide you to live a more healthy, enjoyable life through small, sustainable, nutrition and lifestyle changes WITHOUT sacrificing your relationship with food or your body. I graduated from Grand Valley State University in Michigan with a Bachelors in Allied Health Science and followed my passion for nutrition by receiving my Master’s in Clinical Dietetics from my alma mater. I have since been practicing as an Inpatient Clinical Dietitian in Chicago. I understand what it's like to feel like your body is working against you as I have personally struggled with my own health barriers (PCOS, acne, anxiety, disordered eating) which is what initially drove me to study nutrition. It is my belief and personal experience that with patience, education, and guidance you will be able to understand your body and begin to work with it instead of fighting it. I’m excited you’re here and feel honored to help guide you on your journey!
