What is a Sport Dietitian?
A Sports Dietitian provides individual and group/team nutrition counseling and education to enhance the performance of competitive and recreational athletes, on-site and during travel. Primary responsibilities include counseling individuals and groups on daily nutrition for performance and health; translating the latest scientific evidence into practical sports nutrition education for health/wellness programs, athletic teams, and community groups; and maintaining professional competency and skills required for professional practice. **
What is a Functional Nutritionist?

A functional nutritionist is a practitioner that works in partnership with their client, focusing on the whole person, developing a personalized approach to health and healing, in which the best of conventional, complementary, and alternative practices can be explored and considered when working toward the optimal health and performance for each individual.
