ABOUT GRACE RIVERS

Hello and welcome to my website. I hope you find the information helpful. Please feel free to visit my contact page and drop me a note as to what type of nutrition information you are looking for.

A bit about me, I’m a been-around-awhile dietitian that has more than 20 years of experience. When I was in my twenties, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. I made some changes with my food intake and learned this helped to lower my blood pressure. Then, the doctor took me off my blood pressure medication. This helped me understand how foods could really make an impact on my health and how I felt. This was long before my Registered Dietitian days.

Besides knowing how to cope with high blood pressure and sodium, I also specialize in diabetes and worked mainly with it for 15 years. Wanting to be closer to home, my family, and give back to my neighborhood, I left my full time job, where I worked as an outpatient diabetes educator, and started my own business. In my current practice, I focus on wellness and preventative care which includes weight management, cholesterol control, diabetes, and more.

I love working with anyone who wants to improve and is ready to make a change. I know it can be hard knowing what to do with food and nutrition. I have seen so many clients who come in confused, starving themselves, tired, can’t get blood pressure, blood sugar or cholesterol under control and have been on every diet out there.

I help you find simple things you can do with your current habits to help you reach your goals. If you are looking for nutritional guidance to improve your quality of life, please contact me, I will help you.

When I feel the absolute best is when I know that I have helped someone to feel better with food and nutrition. This could be from tackling the world of eating with diabetes, finding lower sodium foods, high fiber foods, or understanding why that latest fad diet did not work for you.

If you have nutritional goals that you are trying to reach and haven’t been able to figure out how to get there, and you are ready to make a change, I am here to help you.
