OLDER ADULT (65+) NUTRITION
Stacey is a Board Certified Specialist in Gerontological Nutrition (CSG); she has significant experience working with older adults to achieve their nutritional goals and to improve chronic disease states.
Whether it be unintentional weight loss, swallowing difficulty (also known as dysphagia), diabetes management, heart health, pressure injuries, a decline in kidney function, or simply a desire to feel physically energized and stay active and strong, Stacey is well-versed in nutritional interventions to improve your overall wellness, energy levels, and nutritional status.
Stacey is knowledgeable about age-specific nutrition requirements, and knows that older adults have specific nutrition needs to keep active, healthy, and energized! As we age, our bodies change, but that's no reason to stop enjoying the things we love; nutrition can help optimize your energy levels, reduce chronic pain and inflammation, and keep you feeling young!
BUILDING HEALTHY HABITS

With over 8 years of counseling experience, Stacey will help you to build healthy habits with an emphasis on achieving your goals. She also knows that eating habits are impacted by so much more than the food you eat: stress, sleep, surroundings, and relationships also play a key role in how we nourish ourselves!

CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGEMENT
Stacey has worked with adult clients of all ages with a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure (CHF), high cholesterol, hypertension (high blood pressure), chronic kidney disease (CKD Stage 1 to 5 on dialysis), and more.
