Why is Mickenzie a registered dietitian nutritionist?

“When I was younger, I always thought I would grow up to be either a therapist or a teacher, as I had always been eager to help others and make a difference. In high school, I grew a passion for learning about nutrition and health. Once I realized there was a job that incorporated nutrition, counseling and educating all in one, I was sold and knew that becoming a dietitian was my goal. As I embarked on this journey, I continued to see how inescapable and impactful diet culture was within society, resulting in unhealthy relationships with food, disordered eating, and negative perceptions of self. I chose this career path in order to show others that health can be achieved without being confined to a strict diet or overextending oneself in the gym. I realized I could utilize evidence-based approaches to show others that being healthy can be enjoyable and fulfilling!” 

How does Mickenzie stay healthy?

Mickenzie stays healthy by fueling herself and moving her body in a way that is intuitive and fulfilling. She honors her body’s cues and cravings through intuitive eating. She loves participating in group fitness classes at her local gym, as well as taking her dogs on walks outside. She believes health is so much more than just physical. She makes time to get ample rest and participate in self-care activities to equally prioritize her mental and emotional health. 

What else to know about Mickenzie?

In Mickenzie’s spare time she enjoys walking or biking to her favorite local smoothie place or coffee shop on a sunny day. She is the definition of a “dog mom”, and can often be found pushing her dogs, Koda & Russell, around in their doggy stroller.
