Sarah Healy, MS, RDN, LD, CLT

Growing up, Sarah helped care for her grandparents while they battled heart disease and diabetes. Because of this, she saw the importance of nutrition and developed a passion for nutrition counseling. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Nutrition from Florida State University. After graduation, she worked as a dietitian in a skilled nursing facility, where she oversaw the dietary staff and provided clinical nutrition services. She then moved into a nutrition counseling role, where she helped clients develop healthy eating habits that fit their busy lifestyles.

Her passion and specialties include preventative nutrition, diabetes, food sensitivities,  heart disease and other chronic diseases. After spending some time as a stay-at-home parent, she understands both the challenges and importance of family nutrition and enjoys working with parents and children to encourage small healthy changes that fit each individual family. She believes in meeting clients where they are and helping them to make small, simple changes without judgement leads to building confidence and positive reinforcements. This enables her patients to take ownership of their choices and achieve their life-long goals.

She embraces the fact that everyone is unique and has different tastes, preferences, body shapes, life stressors and goals and therefore takes a holistic approach to all the factors influencing health. As a certified LEAP therapist, Sarah enjoys helping client’s navigate and investigate the challenges of dealing with food sensitivity related health problems and symptoms. 

Sarah is married and has three children of her own and has loved teaching them about health and balance in nutrition. As a self-proclaimed foodie, she relishes the chance to incorporate flavor, satisfaction, and taste into balanced and healthy eating. In her free time she enjoys eating out, running through the woods, spending time with her family, watching Braves baseball, and watercolor painting.
