Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, I have lived in Nashville for the last 18 years and just recently relocated to southern California. On my journey to becoming a Board Cetified Nutrition Specialist, I have been blessed with an amazing support system. Not only do I have wonderful friends and family encouraging me, but the many educators and medical professionals along my path who have also been instrumental in my advancement.
Having graduated from Austin Peay State University in May 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Exercise Science, it was through this program where I obtained my foundation of human anatomy and physiology. I obtained my Master of Science in Nutrition for Wellness through Bastyr University in San Diego, Ca in June 2022. It was my own journey with holistic healing that has led me to seek out a profession as a CNS with an emphasis on biochemical individuality and nutrigenomics. A graduate of Bastyr University and a Certified Nutrition Specialist, I focus on the mind, body, and spirit. I believe that all have a causal impact on healing the person.
Going into Nutrition, one doesn’t get there by stumbling upon the field. One reaches this field because of their own journey with the health and healing of themselves or that of a loved one. I believe that God has used the adversities and struggles in my life with depression and anxiety to lead me to becoming a Certified Nutrition Specialist. Without my personal journey as daily fuel, I would not possess the compassion, strength, persistence, the desire to be better than I was the day before, and most importantly, love. Because of my own personal transformation and the tools and knowledge I’ve acquired, I am confident and passionate about helping others to become their highest and best. I welcome everyone from all communities.

I have struggled my entire adult life with sugar-addiction, IBS, and a host of other health issues. I’ve worked with doctors, nutritionists, and dietitians in the past. Charlie far exceeded my expectations. He did what I wish the other professionals I consulted would have done. He took the time to educate me on nutrition, what about my eating habits was causing issues, and guidance. He gives direction and a plan, which is something I never received before.
Charlie is a deep well of knowledge. He’s passionate about what he does and his level of care is unmatched. It’s easy to see that he is committed to helping his clients reach their health goals, while also giving them a solid foundational understanding of nutrition. Since working with him, I finally have a handle on my eating habits. I feel better than I have in many years. I highly recommend Charlie for anyone searching for a nutritionist.
