Hi! I’m Laura, but everyone calls me Sassy. I love all things food, fitness, & coffee-related things. You can find me in my kitchen whipping up new recipes (aka making a mess), working out at my local CrossFit gym, creating fun & thought-provoking posts on Instagram– or walking my dog. I love hiking, going out to eat with friends, playing with my pup, and sipping on a “Sassy Spritzer”- kombucha + seltzer. I’m an extrovert through and through and love meeting new people, clients, & followers. I’m not really into TV but you can sometimes catch me secretly gushing over The Bachelor or getting inspired by Shark Tank.
Why did I start the Sassy Dietitian?
I wanted to share my love of food via recipes and debunk healthy myths by giving people a safe space to learn and ask questions about nutrition.
I saw a need for brutal honesty, passion, & love of preventative nutrition in the world. I wanted to share my love of food by developing healthy & tasty recipes, debunking health myths, and by giving people a safe space to learn and ask questions about nutrition.
I work one on one with clients to help them improve their relationship with food & their diet. I provide customized meal plans for individuals to help put ease the process of getting healthy food on the table. I work with groups and gyms to help them improve the nutrition of their clients and work towards a balanced real food approach. I also love working with brands to bring life to their products and show my clients how to incorporate these brands into their every busy lives.
