Who am I?
Hi, I'm Priscilla!
As an athlete, I have always a held an interest in fitness & nutrition and studying the ways it can change lives. My passion for fitness led me to earn my degree in nutrition as a Dietetic Technician, Registered in 2014.
I’ve worked as a clinical nutritionist providing individualized nutrition counseling to patients admitted to the hospital, taught hydration basics to athletes all over the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and partnered major corporations to teach heart health and healthy living basics. My experience in obesity management programs, basic nutrition instruction, and healthy shopping classes led me to starting my own nutrition private practice where I can focus on my passion of helping others.
During my diverse career in nutrition I’ve come to realize that there is so much more to healthy living than simply calorie counting, dieting and restrictive eating. Nutrition should be achievable, functional, and flexible so that it supports YOUR goals.
My philosophy is that in order to find a balanced, healthy lifestyle, we must first find a healthy relationship with food, ditch the diets, and focus on your goals so that we can find YOUR version of healthy.
What Is The Difference Between A Registered Dietitian and a Nutrition & Dietetic Technician, Registered?
RDNs — use their nutrition expertise to help individuals make unique, positive lifestyle changes. They work throughout the community in hospitals, schools, public health clinics, nursing homes, fitness centers, food management, food industry, universities, research and private practice. RDNs are advocates for advancing the nutritional status of Americans and people around the world.
NDTRs — are educated and trained at the technical level of nutrition and dietetics practice for the delivery of safe, culturally competent, quality food and nutrition services. They are nationally credentialed and are an integral part of health care and foodservice management teams. They work under the supervision of a registered dietitian nutritionist when in direct patient/client nutrition care; and they may work independently in providing general nutrition education to healthy populations.

a little more about me
Food is my love language, but endurance sports are my passion.
In 2015 I launched my first blog, Priscilla Loves to Run, in an effort to chronicle my love of running and triathlon and to support the nutrition and fitness needs of my readers. Instead, I found a community of support and encouragement like no other.
Today, I continue to follow my passion with the support of my triathlete and runner friends. After racing everything from 5k’s to several 70.3 and 140.6 Ironman triathlons I wanted to give back to the sports that have changed my life. In 2020 I obtained my USA Triathlon Level 1 coaching and RRCA Run coach certificate so that I can continue to help others achieve their fitness goals.
Most days you can find me testing all the best recipes, running the best trails, cycling to the ends of the earth or just learning how to make each day worth living.
