Hi, I'm Claire!
I'm a Board-Certified Sports Dietitian (MS RD CSSD), distance runner, and host of The Eat for Endurance Podcast. I provide virtual nutrition coaching to clients on a wide variety of issues, with a speciality in Performance Nutrition. With nearly a decade of experience working with active individuals, I'm here
to help YOU feel and perform your best without sacrificing all the fun in your life!
My Nutrition Philosophy & Approach
The food we put into our bodies has a massive impact on how we perform - not just in our athletic endeavors, but also in our daily lives. However, food is so much more than fuel. It nourishes our soul, and it’s part of how we connect to others. That is why I collaborate with my clients to create individualized and sustainable nutrition plans that allow them to achieve realistic goals while still enjoying the many roles that food plays in their lives.
As a working parent and athlete myself, I also understand how challenging it can be to prioritize your nutrition and health while living a busy lifestyle. It is a constant and ever-changing balancing act for each of us, finding the time to prepare food, exercise, work, manage the household, parent, sleep, spend time with loved ones, take time for ourselves, and deal with whatever curve balls life throws our way. It may feel impossible to find balance between these things because, let's be honest, it usually is. I meet you wherever you are, and we focus on small, achievable changes that can lead to significant results.
Remember, it's not about eating "perfectly" - that doesn't exist. We are all (myself included) doing our best on any given day! Also, there is no one-size-fits-all nutrition approach or single best "diet" for health and performance. We work together to discover what is right for YOU, at this point in your life.
So whether you're training for a specific event, looking to fine-tune your exercise and eating patterns, or seeking help with other nutrition-related goals, I am here to support you with practical, evidence-based recommendations!
