Dietitian  — Sports Focused

Uses She/Her pronouns

Riley (she/her) is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Licensed Dietitian in the State of Washington (DI61486001). She attended Yale University for her undergraduate education and then went on to obtain her PhD in Nutritional Biology at the University of California, Davis studying personalized nutrition and the gut microbiome. As a former collegiate athlete and current fitness coach (CF-L1), Riley is passionate about empowering individuals to heal their relationship with food, movement, and their bodies so they live their lives fully and, if applicable, perform to their full potential. A Seattle local, Riley’s interest in nutrition began as a high school athlete (softball and swimming) at Holy Names Academy. In an attempt to optimize her performance, she turned to nutrition and exercise but found her performance and mental health suffering as a result of restriction and obsession over these aspects of her life. Through her education and experience with fitness after competitive sports, Riley has learned to heal her relationship with food, exercise, and body and now wants to help others fuel intuitively for activity and sport, learn about gut health, and find joy in food and movement. As a queer-identifying woman, Riley is also passionate about working with members of the LGBTQ+ community and acknowledges how issues of marginalization and gender identity can influence individual’s relationships with food and their bodies. Riley emphasizes curiosity, compassion, and collaboration in working with each individual client in their unique lived experience, goals, and needs so each client feels seen and supported.

Outside of work, Riley enjoys hiking, cooking, reading, and visiting new coffee shops and bakeries around Seattle.
