Hi, my name is Jessica Beardsley. I am a registered and licensed dietitian based in North Carolina. I have a passion for helping others understand their bodies and their individual nutrition needs in order to live a balanced and healthy life. I approach my clients with gentle care. I don't use fad diets, but rather I focus on honoring hunger with real food. I can help you with:
Freedom from diets
Understanding and honoring hunger
Optimizing food choices to reduce disease risk
Enhance athletic performance through sports nutrition
After getting my undergraduate degree at NC State University, I earned a Masters degree in bioengineering from UC San Diego where I learned the intricacies of the human body and physiology. I discovered that I wanted to partner with individuals to make a bigger impact in their lives through nutrition. I then earned my Masters of Science in nutrition from Georgia State University before moving back to North Carolina.
My passion for sports nutrition came from my love of running, triathlon, rock climbing and playing ultimate frisbee. I grew up competing in gymnastics and I still love jumping on the trampoline with my two girls. I love to cook as a way of expressing my creativity. I am highly motivated by efficiency therefore I love finding short cuts to a great meal!
I believe in:
Whole person approach
Health At Every Size® principles
