Dietitian + Nutrition Specialist
Uses She/Her pronouns
Lindsay is a Registered Dietitian (DI# DI61353306) who is passionate about helping people develop their own unique ways of nourishing themselves and their relationships with food. Her interest in the nutrition field stemmed from her own experience as a client in the dietitian’s office. As a person with type 1 diabetes for sixteen years, she knows the challenge of navigating
food choices while simultaneously managing a chronic illness. Early on, she felt frustrated about receiving diet-centric, one-size-fits-all carb counting lectures. When she began her dietetics training, she knew she wanted to be the kind of dietitian she wished she’d had as a teen and offer a therapeutic nutrition approach that truly encompasses all aspects of health.
She received her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Whitman College (Walla Walla, WAin 2017. While completing her senior thesis on the cultural messaging people receive about food and diets, she was able to better understand diet culture in its sneaky forms and was introduced to Health At Every Size. Knowing more about the anti-diet approach inspired her to pursue a nutrition degree so she could put her knowledge to use in an evidence-based practice. She received her Master of
Science degree in Nutrition from Bastyr University (Kenmore, WA) in 2021. Her graduate experiences fed her interest in the emotional and social connections people have with food, which led her to eating disorder recovery work. Lindsay completed her dietetic internship at Simmons University (Boston, MA) in 2022 to receive additional training in nutrition therapy for eating disorders.
She is a Pacific Northwest native and loves spending time on the trails and the San Juan Island beaches. As a social introvert and homebody, baking cookies, podcast walks, creative crafting projects, and catching up with friends over coffee all bring her joy.
