Welcome to
Lauren Cornell Nutrition

Personalized nutrition care for long lasting health

 

I’m Lauren Cornell: a Registered Dietitian and a lover of all things related to food! In 2012, I started my private practice to provide people with clinical nutrition care in a fun, approachable way. Proper nutrition and a healthy relationship with food are vital to feeling your absolute best. I strive to help patients replace food anxiety with the idea that good nutrition feels like a breath of fresh air – natural and necessary.

Through evidence-based and goal-oriented advice, I will help you identify the most realistic actions that help you reach your goals. Every appointment is tailored to meet each person’s unique nutritional needs and lifestyle, whether it be for those with a disease or for those who want to simply stay well.

  • I will work with you to understand your true, underlying motivations and work through any personal resistance you may have.

My Story

 

Before pursuing my Master’s in Nutritional Science, I was a collegiate athlete and competitive dancer for over 10 years, and I completed my Bachelor’s degrees in Theater and Film. Although my initial education was in the arts, it was a family member’s successful battle against cancer through the help of medical nutrition therapy combined with my lifelong interest in science that inspired me to pursue a career as a Registered Dietitian. I became fascinated with the remarkable healing properties of food and nutrition, and I knew then that I wanted to help people in similar ways. And - I’ve never looked back. I absolutely love what I do. My enthusiasm for nutrition science, new research-based knowledge, and genuine love for people allows my work to be fun and enjoyable.

In hospitals, a Registered Dietitian is regarded as the primary expert in nutritional science and a mandatory member of the interdisciplinary medical team. I founded my practice to fill that same need outside of the hospital setting so people can access nutrition services as part of their most basic healthcare needs. My focus on treating medical diagnoses and clinically identified symptoms allows me to accept insurance so that I may help as many individuals as I can.

Few things bring me more joy than to see my patients reach their goals through the work we do together. I truly hope all of my patients look forward to their visits as much as I enjoy working with them!
