Food and nutrition have always played a critical role in Erin's life. However, she developed a passion and interest in dietetics during her undergraduate career at Texas A&M where she received a Bachelors of Science degree in Nutritional Sciences. She went on to pursue her Masters of Science in Dietetics at Northern Illinois University and became a registered and licensed dietitian in the state of Maryland. She enjoys educating communities on how to use evidence-based information to better their lives, prevent or manage chronic conditions, and handle food safely for themselves and others.

During her graduate career, Erin learned about a new approach to health and wellness called Intuitive Eating. This mindset removes the focus from dieting and helps individuals form healthy relationships with food, exercise, and their bodies. Its 10 guiding principles help individuals practice moderation and find overall satisfaction from eating a wide variety of foods. Erin attempts to incorporate these messages within her programs to help individuals reshape their mindsets and build the skills necessary to become intuitive eaters.
