NAKITA DAVIS, NDT
"I have an Associate Degree of Applied Science in Nutrition and Dietetics. In the past, I was overweight and diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I knew that I had to change my poor eating habits to regain a healthier lifestyle. I decided to go to school for nutrition because I wanted to learn how food affects the body. I aim to encourage, motivate, and teach individuals about making healthier food choices and inspiring a healthier lifestyle. I enjoy cooking and talking about the nutritional content of food. I want people to know that they can consume nutritious foods to help prevent chronic diseases and obesity."
CLANCY GEISLER, RN, INHC
"I am a registered nurse and certified integrative nutrition health coach. I graduated from nursing school in 2008 and spent 14 years as a medical oncology nurse. After having my third daughter, I went on my own personal health journey. I enrolled in a health coaching program where I learned a holistic approach to health and wellness. I learned that food is information for our bodies and that not all calories are created equal. The foods we eat can promote wellness and prevent disease. I want to help guide you to discover the foods that will nourish your body and help you feel your best!"

AMANDA ROSENMERKEL, RD, CD
"I have struggled with my weight my entire life, even as a college athlete. When I realized the powerful impact nutrition has on overall mental and physical health, I knew it was a career for me. As a Registered Dietitian who loves running, triathlons, weight lifting, and social gatherings, it's so important to find that balance in health. My goal is to help anyone I can find the healthiest version of themselves through progress, not perfection."
