Emily was born in Nashville, TN and raised just south of Franklin, TN. She is currently enrolled in The Dietetic Internship Program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, TN.
Emily has been in recovery for anorexia and orthorexia for almost two years now, and is passionate about peer-mentoring other men and women who struggle with some of the same difficulties that she has faced.
She has personally experienced the ups-and-downs of eating disorder recovery, and she believes that God has placed a calling on her life to help others experience hope and healing through proper nourishment of the mind, body, and spirit. Her own recovery journey has solidified her belief that the nutrition therapy process must be approached on both holistic and personalized level. She is committed to being a voice of reason in a society that is bombarded by misinformation provided by the diet industry and self-proclaimed nutritionist. Emily is a recovery warrior, and invites you to stand with her in the hope, perseverance, courage, and flexibility that it takes to fully recover.
In her free time, Emily enjoys writing, spending time at her home church, watching Grey’s Anatomy, playing with her dog, circuit training, volunteering, and spending time with friends and family.
Emily grew up with her mom, dad, sister, and golden retriever in Thompson’s Station, TN. She married her high school sweetheart a few months ago, and now resides with him in Franklin, TN.
